Hey guys, I am looking to sell my desktop computer (to make some extra money and I am building a new computer anyway) along with some games. The only thing not included is the operating system (go figure).

I need opinions on what you think I should sell all of this for!

This is a computer that I have been upgrading for years up until about 2 years ago. So this is not meant to be a Quad/8-core, 32GB ram, SLI/Crossfire X, 2010 beast. It is a solid build that I've been using for graphics and gaming. I have been making more use of my Gateway FX 7805u gaming laptop for my video, graphics and some gaming needs. I am building a new desktop soon (I've been posting it in the New Build forums here on TomsHardware.com).

$300 for the tower. I'd probably try sell the games for $5-10 a piece. You could probably ask for $550 for the entire set, but be happy if you get an offer for $500.

I would love to get $500 for the whole set. All games run fine on the system. The only games I haven't tried on the desktop is Crysis (because I got it mainly for my laptop).

Even $400 for the set would be nice. I've just been trying to figure out what to propose at with the hopes of negotiating to a price I'd be satisfied with.

I'd put a price of $500 on it. I will tell you that Crysis is not going to run on that.
