Let me start with, I live in England so there are nearly no "scrap for cash shops". I have taken out all parts
Two DDR 256MB sticks
One Pentium 4 2.8Ghz
80Gb Seagate 7200Rpm HDD
Geforce FX 5200
CD/DVD Was replaced and I have kept it to reuse.
Very old pc built in 2004 used last 2013. I took some of the parts out with a hammer so no hope of resale. However is there any truth to "Gold Value" and "Copper Value" or should I take it up the tip and have done with it.
Also I did take some of the fingers off and they are not magnetic (good sign I believe)
