Are these parts worth anything?

I'm not sure which category this topic fits under, but I believe this is the most appropriate one...

Anyway, I have parts left over from my previous computer and I'm planning to sell them on craiglist or somewhere like that.
They're in very good condition, in both functionality and appearance. Purchased around in January in 2010.

I was wondering if you guys could tell me the rough estimate of what these are worth used.

Case:
Antec Sonata III 500
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

MOBO:
ASUS P5Q Deluxe LGA 775 Intel P45 Intel Motherboard
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

CPU:
Intel Core 2 Quad Q8400 Processor 2.66 GHz 4 MB Cache Socket LGA775
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

RAM:
Kingston 2GB 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 800 (PC2 6400) Desktop Memory Model KVR800D2/2GR
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

Should I sell them at like 50% of the current retail price? or maybe even less? I'm planning to sell the CPU, MOBO, and RAM together(haven't taken them apart since I took them out of the case to salvage the cooler & GPU, they've been safely sitting in an anti-static bag).
Please give me some advice!

50% of the original price is about what I pay for used computer parts. Anything more and it could take awhile to move them. Only item you might get a little more for is ram.

You could probably sell it for around $150 if your lucky.


You can get a modern i3/mobo/8GB DDR3 ram for about $200, and it would be much faster, upgradable and more efficient.

I suppose I'll try a little under $150 then...$150 just for the CPU/mobo/ram bundle, right? Or did you mean including the case?

Include the case for $150, since you only have 2 gb of ram.

Err, sorry for this late comment, but it's actually 4GB of ram(although only DDR2). Also, I'm including the 500W Earthwatt 80 Plus bronze certified PSU that came with the case.

In this case, do you think it's safe to bump up the total price to $200? (in USD)

You can try it; ask what you want. It's a matter of waiting; how long you are willing to hold the price firm before reducing it. I've seen postings on craigslist that are months old; the seller refuses to lower the price and is willing to wait.
