Where are you located? Pricing will vary wildly depending on geography.

I would price the components new, total it up and divide by two as a general rule.

In my area for example I could basically replicate that unit for about $1000, although this would NOT be my best use of that $1000 as there is newer technology and product bundles which would make for a better system. So having said that I dont think it is unreasonable to ask for $500. Of course you could start higher and hope for a bite. As to where to sell it online, that really depends on your area. People tend to buy used items locally more often (just in case its a dud).

Depends on if PC is new or used. If it's new you can sell it for break even or more, if it's used reduce 10-25% or more depending on age.

Best way to determine the cost is to price all of the components as new on Newegg.com, take 15% off for the age of the PC (15% for each year) and add back about roughly $75 for your time building the PC. This is a good starting point to sell your PC.

You always have Craig's List or eBay to sell your PC.
