I'm looking to sell a low end gaming PC I built out of old parts from friends and my old rigs. None of the parts are more than 6 months old and show no sign of wear apart from the HDD which has small scratches on the side (doesn't affect performance and are not visible when it is installed). Here is the rig:

AMD Phenom II 965 BE x4 @ stable 4GHz (could be underclocked upon buyers preference)
Asus Radeon HD 6570 1GB GDDR3
Asus M5A78L-MLX V2
8gb 1333MHz Kingston RAM
Crappy CIT case and 500w PSU
OCZ Petrol 64GB SSD SATA III
Hitachi 300GB 7200RPM HDD SATA II
Standard DVD read/write ODD
Win 7 Ultimate 64-bit
(I also have Adobe Photoshop and Illustrator and MS Office 2007 if the buyer wanted them left on)

How much would you pay?

It is worth less than you might think.

You will do better by selling off the parts individually.

To get an idea of prices, search for the item with used as a condition.
Then look at completed auctions. In green, you will see what that item really sold for.

I know a cheap PSU can blow (I personally have an OCZ 80+ bronze PSU) but the PC is created from old parts from my and my friends rigs, I didn't really want to spend anything on upgrading it. The buyer can do that themselves if they want.

I might just do that.
