It's a really nice processor. Handles everything you throw at it, and it's so reliable. I own it, it never lags, overheats, and it's quiet.

The other components are pretty good, and the sound card sounds pretty good, but I don't even know anything about them.

I would say $750

If you know what it's worth, then why did you post a thread asking how much it's worth?

I'm telling you - I wouldn't pay more than $300 for it. And we all know that something is only worth what someone's willing to pay for it.

What I was wondering the rig was worth as a whole. Which would save me the trouble of parting out and creating multiple auctions. But $300 for the whole thing still sounds a little too low. But you are right it’s only worth what some one is willing to pay for it. You are just willing to pay lot lower than I could easily manage to get.

I would have thought about £350-400 ish.

I mean, that thing will game resonably well, on mid-high settings on most current games?
