Hi everyone,

I know nothing about computers... that is to say I know nothing about gaming computers and what the top of the line equipment is...... Long story short I won a giveaway at one of the stores in my area. I won a "Monster Gamer's Dream Machine". I already have a computer and it is less than a year old. It does everything I need it to do so I don't really need this "monster computer". I am looking to sell it but I do not know how much I should be looking to get out of it. I tried to ask the people at the store I won it at but they were less than helpful. I had a guy I know offer me $600 bucks for it, but from the description of the computer that sounded a bit low..... I was hoping that I could get some input from some of you fine people to let me know what I should expect to get out of it. Its brand new and its never been turned on... still in the original packaging and what not. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks everyone.

This is what was on the paper that came with the machine:

Thermaltake Level 10GT Full Tower Wide Body Gaming Case w/ Side-Panel Window

wow.... really? Well I am glad that I didnt sell it for $600 bucks.... Thank you very much guys. One other question.... my nephew is 17 and he is a gamer. His birthday is coming up and he mentioned that he really needs a new computer... will this computer do well at playing his games? He plays star wars and massive effect and battlefield... I hope I got those right.... Im sorry if I sound stupid..... lol.... but if this machine will do well for games I may just sell it to my brother at a discounted price for my nephew...

This game will run all games currently maxed out, and in 2-3 years your nephew can get another 580 for SLI!
