I agree. There's no way you could sell it at a profit on eBay. People are looking for deals on eBay, and $200 over retail value isn't one.

Especially n00bs (like the ones I know, what a coincedence) that think Intel is better than AMD because Dell uses them!

ebay is only good if you want to buy things...... You have to remember that you are competing with people who have wholesale connections. They can sell their product at a way lower price. You would be better off selling your computer locally in the newspaper or something like that.
