maybe 3-400$? i mean other than the OS, the actual computer its self isn't worth much. a Phenom II 840 is kinda out dated now. Most only the Phenom Black Editions are still good but other than that..

ASUS M4N68T-M v2 = 30-40$
Crucial Ballistix 2x 2GB RAM 1600 Mhz = 20$
Cooler Master RS 500 PSAR I3 Power Supply (500w) = 40-50$
Seagate 80 GB Hard Drive = 35$
Cooler Master 343 computer case 25$

And the OS brand new is wort 189 or 200$.

Total for components: 170$
Total as is computer and everything: around 400$

If I had to buy that system with my money.... i'd give you maybe 375 or 350

I would list it as a $200 "Internet Computer" I would happily take any offer of $150 or better for the first 2 weeks and any offer of $100 after that.


That 80GB hard drive really limits it's usefulness.

You may be able to add some value by finding a good 8800 video card on ebay ( i bought one once for $40) that way it will at least play games. And yes, that 80GB HDD makes it a hard sell as well.

I don't really expect to get a lot of money for it, just something fair.

I put it on Craigslist for $200 but haven't had any interest.

Yeah, selling obsolete hardware can be tough. I have several LGA 775 Pentium 4 chips laying around in the basement and I could probably make at least 2 and maybe 3 working computers out of parts just sitting in a box but it's not really even worth the trouble for the little amount of money involved.

There is a decent sized flea market in town and I think one day I'll clean out all my obsolete parts and take them there. I think there is a guy who has a stall selling old parts there and I'll just see if I can get $50 for the lot of it. Hell if not I might just donate them to him.
