5800 series what? Which model? Considering I can build a i5-2500K system which is more than 10% faster than yours for $700-ish I'd say a sensible price for yours would be ca. $600. I know, it sucks. You probably paid a lot for the i7 + mobo but nowadays it's kind of obsolete :( 

BTW I'm on a i7-920 3.56 GHz :lol:

Yeah, you will need to be way more specific on the parts, 12 gig of ram but what name, speed, model? And I'm not even sure what "FUJITSU MARVELL Raid VD 0 SCSI Disk Device (SATA) " is. Guessing it's a regular 2 TB sata drive but you got SCSI in there so it kinda throws me off. Not trying to be a smartasb, just looking for current pricing on components. I have built several systems since last year and with the new tech out you really won't get much for it. Probably around $650 to $750. Less if you got to ship it. Believe me, I have dropped prices when most of the components were new. Most people won't pay for what you got invested in it.
