I am upgrading to a new PC and am interested in selling my current rig which is a 5 year old Dell XPS 630i. I was curious what the forum thinks I can get for it. I've upgraded it a bit with an EVGA GTX 295, SoundBlaster X-fi Extreme Music card, and 8 GB of RAM. I will be taking out the hard drive.

The machine is in excellent condition and works perfectly. With the 8 GB of RAM and GTX 295 it runs most games pretty well (if not a bit hot and loud) at moderate to high settings. It would make a great entry-level gaming computer for someone

I'm thinking around $500?

For $500 people can build a decent entry level gaming system with all bits under warranty. I would think that maybe around $300 would be max anyone would pay. There is always a possibility that you can get more by parting out but doubtful.

Yes, a truly motivated person probably would be able to build a new system with comparable performance at a comparable price with the advantage of not having used parts that could fail sooner.

However, not everyone wants to build a system, particularly for entry-level. For instance, here is an example of an entry level system in 2013:

It would cost $660 to build and the 7770 would be blown away by the 295. The processor is better on that system, but it's only 4 GB of RAM where mine is 8 GB. The cheapest configuration for the lowest level Intel processor on CyberPowerPC that is comparable to my system is about $600.

So, maybe $500 is a little high, but $300 is a little low, I think. Maybe $400?
