Default Price Check: Selling My Rig

Alright, it's getting to be time for an upgrade. If I were to sell this piece in my signature, how much do you think I could get for it max? I realize it is not going to be much, but anything is better than nothing. I will probably try to sell it locally, maybe Craigslist. I don't especially want to do business across the internet and fuss with shipping and all.

• 2.53 GHz Intel Pentium 4 Processor
Gigabyte GA-8IPE1000 Pro-G Mobo (Probably the nicest part of the system)
• 512 MB 266MHz DDR RAM
• 120 GB Western Digital IDE Hard Drive (Will wipe this, no O/S [unless they want Linux])
• BFG GeForce 5700 LE 256 MB AGP Video Card (Factory overclocked)
• FSP (Fortron Source) AX400-PN 400W PSU

i'd say you could get maybe $300-$350 US, that's an estimate and an estimated currency conversion.

Thanks all, that's good to know.

Maybe I'll throw in a keyboard and mouse and/or monitor and bump the price a little. I've got some extra speakers too, hmm...

lol, go ahead and do that. looking at the system id say about 250, plus kb, mouse, and speakers, you can raise it another 50, and a monitor can raise it another 75 depending on the type/manufactuer/size.

so if all goes well, you can get atleast 400 for it.
