I'm planing to sell this pc in August before getting too old with an intention in building a Core I 7 system:

4gb of ram ddr2 800 mhz
antec ea 650w
h50 cpu cooler
500gb sata2 7200 rpm western digital
dvd drive sata2 supermulti
ati 5850 (only 2 month old)
brand new k/m
antec 300 illusion

22" Samsung moni 1680x1050

i will add about $700-800

So how much can this be sold? I know the mobo sucks but it does the job.

Depends on your local market and how long you want to wait for an offer. I would check "craigslist" in your city for similar systems. You'll get more on ebay if you're willing to ship. I would keep the samsung monitor and plan on shipping the system if you get a decent offer. You'll be lucky to get $750 for the box only and you don't list an operating system, which reduces it's value.

Your best bet would be to sell it by the part. The system as a whole will not be worth much but in peices will increase the amount of money you will get.

As a whole around $600

By the part around $800

The second you open the box and install that peripheral the value depreciates by about 30% and sometimes even more.

It would help if you told us how much you paid for it.
I assume you overclocked this rig quite a bit. In that case, if the components like CPU/motherboard are fairly old (1-1.5 years), they would have deteriorated much faster than if you had used them at stock. That would fetch a lower price.
My estimate would be around $600-650.

btw, why sell anything beyond the cpu/mobo/RAM/display? Everything else could be reused (like the HDD as a secondary drive). This way, you could dedicate your $700-800 solely for the cpu+mobo+RAM+a second 5850 (+maybe a better display)

For the cpu-mobo-ram-monitor, maybe $400-450.
