I am thinking of selling my PC. I am curious to know how much i would get for it before actually putting it on ebay. Here are the specs:
Intel i7 860 @3.6ghz
Nvidia 9800gt
4gb ddr3 ram
1TB hard drive
Asus p7p55d motherboard
Cooler master v8 (temp never gets above 84 degrees Fahrenheit)
Windows vista ultimate 64bit

The system is only 4 months old.
Please quote in US dollars.

As a quick guide, I would take a look at the current prices for each component, add an assembly fee, and subtract 10-15% in depreciation.

Processor: ~$300
Video Card: ~$100
RAM: ~$100
HDD: ~$75
Motherboard: ~$180
CPU Cooler: ~$60
OS: ~$120

System total: ~$935

Plus Assembly: ~$65

Total: ~$1000

A case could run from $50 to $800, but that system looks like a $50-$80 case. PSU looks like about 550w, probably $60-70. If you have a BD drive add $100, $150 if its a burner. For a CD or DVD drive, I would only add about $10-20, even if it will burn. They are so cheap nowadays that I would pay almost nothing for them

Max total: ~$1120

I would start bidding at about $850-$900, depending on the value of the case, PSU and disk drives.

Good luck selling.

No problem. Here's hoping you get a fair price.
