I really enjoy building computers and I want to make a BAMF i7 / SSD system with the proceeds from my latest build (i got the all the components really cheap) but I'm unsure what sell price i should go for, what do you guys think?

Intel Quad Q6600 @ 2.4 GHz
4GB OCZ DDR3 Ram
1GB 512 Bit Asus EAH 3870x2
Gigabyte GA-EP45T-DS3R/DS3 Motherboard
Corsair 620W PSU
80GB Raptor HDD
750GB Hitachi HDD
Purdy green LED windowed case
Windows XP / Win7 dual boot

I was thinking $1200 because I'm a greedy bastard >:)  but I'm more interested in finding out what somebody would actually be willing to pay for it lol The system has about a month of light use - I'm an aerospace engineer I really don't have time to game ....bit of an expensive hobby lol

Sorry to rain on your parade...but you can get an i7 PC with components better than your for that $1200 now...So if you get a scapegoat, then you are lucky :p ...

I'd give you $750 without the 'bling', shipped to AUS with a two year warranty.

~$700 would be the upper limit, i think if you were to sell to anyone with half a brain. I wouldn't expect to get anymore then then $600 if i were you. And don't be surprised if you only get ~$500.

Never know what you can get, put it on eBay. But I gotta tell you, the market for used home build computers is small. It is worth maybe $500.

I would also try Craigslist. I've had great luck selling things locally for WAY more than I should have.

Haha yeah that was the point ... I wanted $1200 so I could build the i7 w/o paying more for it ^_^ a dream I know. Thanks for your help guys I think $700 sounds good I'll try for that. I really have no reason to sell though lol so no disappointment if I don't get any takers.
