Default Gaming Computer Price Check

I built this rig last summer, and I was wondering how much I would fetch for it if I sold it. Please, I'm not taking offers because I'm not selling it.

Case= APEVIA X-Dreamer II ATXB4KLW-BK Black Steel ATX Mid Tower Computer Case

MoBo= EPoX EP-9NPA3SLI Socket 939 NVIDIA nForce4 SLI ATX AMD Motherboard

RAM= BUFFALO Select 2GB (2 x 1GB) 184-Pin DDR SDRAM DDR 400 (PC 3200) Dual Channel

CPU= AMD Athlon 64 3500+ Venice 2.2GHz Socket 939 Processor

GPU(s)= 2x BIOSTAR V7602GS21 GeForce 7600GS 256MB GDDR2 PCI Express x16 Video Card - Retail (Both of them are in SLI mode)

Sound Card= Creative Sound Blaster Audigy2 ZS SB0350 7.1 Channels PCI Interface Sound Card

Hard Drive= It's a Western Digital Caviar 160gb. Not sure of the specifics on it...

Extra Fans= 2x ATRIX FANCIBLUE4RB-F 80mm Red and Blue Flash LED Case Fan (Makes the case amazingly cool at Lan parties.

Dvd/cd burners= 2x BenQ 16X DVD Burner With 5X DVD-RAM Write Black E-IDE/ATAPI Model DQ60 BK

Keyboard= Ideazon Zboard Gaming Wired Keyboard

Monitor= Hanns∑G JW-199DPO Silver 19" 5ms DVI Widescreen LCD Monitor(1400x900 resolution)

Mousepad(lol)= Thermaltake Gamma Pad Illuminated Gaming Mouse Pad

Mouse= Logitech G5 Laser Mouse (Corded)

I hope it's more than what I paid for in parts :/ (Wishful thinking... )

700-800, i might be a bit too high though, cuz Sora can build an X2 3800+ with a 7600 GT, and since ur SLI'ed that increases teh price, good speakers and accessories (like that monitor)

That's honestly ALOT lower than I'd expect... does anyone else have any opinions. How much would you pay for this computer?

No he is right...technology has become better and fast. The move from single to dual-core and from ddr to ddr2 ram has made old parts value go waay down. Honestly I wouldn't pay more than 700 as I can build something that performs better for around that price...actually less.

It's sad I know but it happens.

That price is in the right range... I paid $1500 shipped for the parts for my gaming rig (except the X1950XT was an X800PRO when originally bought).... It is probably worth about the same right now...

Yup, that just the cost of advancing technology (and used parts... lol).

Not sure if you have gotten a brand new car yet, but this isn't anything compared to the amount a car depreciates simply by being driven off the lot immediatly after sale...
