I guess I don't understand the question. How much did you pay for it, then that is what it is worth to you. If you want to know a part by part cost in U.S $ then just log on to or any other computer place and check the prices for all your components. If you bought it from a store, then the price is of course going to be much higher than the parts price alone.

3 different OS, so yep I\'m confused.

but he has a used computer. i would say$400-600 by a rough estimate. we would need to know how long its been used and most important if it was a prebuilt machine or custom. looks like a custom job from those nice components. i dont think natfrank is even selling it, just curious.
