I'm assuming an AMD 2400+ processor (not actually running at 2.4 GHz)

Since you can build a new computer thats got better RAM and a 2500+ processor for about $400, I would say that your computer is worth about $200-$250.

If all else fails charge your friend the amount you paid for the computer, plus the price of the parts.

Yeah, for the most part, computers are like cars. Once you buy then their value decreases steadilly.

I don't sell my computers, they either get given away or trashed.

anarkhy what do you mean by "just bought it"?
