How much could I get for my PC?

This is my current build with some upgrades. I'm not going to sell it, but a hypothetical price would be really cool. It's a good gaming computer, but it would be amazing for CAD, Photoshop, video editing, etc. (Especially if the software on the SSD is included ;D)

i7 3770K CPU
ASRock Z77 Extreme4 Motherboard
32GB G.Skills Sniper Series DDR3-1866 RAM
EVGA GeForce GTX 660 SuperClocked GPU SLI
Corsair H100 CPU Cooler
90GB Corsair Force3 SSD X2
180Gb Corsair Force3 SSD
2TB Seagate Barracude HDD
LG Blu-Ray Reader
Seasonic X-Series Gold 750W PSU (Single sleeved cables)
Rosewill Thor V2 Case (with some modifications)

Hardware is good, but here's some of the software (I say some because there is a lot more. This is just a taste of a few expensive ones haha.) Some of this came from friends, mostly one who is a Vet. and got a lot of stuff for free. This is all installed on the SSDs

Windows 7 Ultimate 64bit
Windows 8 Professional 64bit
Microsoft Office 2007 Enterprise
Microsoft Office 2010 Professional
Adobe Photoshop CS3, 4, 5, & 6.
Final Cut Studio
AutoCad 2011 & 2013

So an estimate before and after the software would be nice.

how much has it been used?
PC- brand new around $1700
slightly used $1000-1200
Software
Windows 7 Ultimate - $100
Windows 8 Pro - $100
Office 2007 - $200
Office 2012 - $150
CS3 - $50-100
CS4 - $200
CS5 - $300
CS6 - $400-500
Final cut studio - $400-600
Autocad '13 - $500-700
Autocad '11 - $450-600
Pcs and software depreciate like crazy so I would estimate the PC is worth at most $1200 and Software is $2.5k at maximum. What you will actually get would be $1k and $1.75k

Autocad 2013 by itself is $3,500-$4,500 haha. The components right now are basically brand new.

don't ask me to give a price if you already have one in mind. Even if the components are barely used I would say they have lost 15-20% of their value. About autocad i only saw the lt version sorry

I don't have a price in mind, I was just saying that autocad is worth wayyy more than $500-$700.
Right now, it's new (2 days of use haha). But if I were to sell it, it would definitely be used.

Your also assuming that someone would pay you for that software. How many people are gonna want to compensate you for CAD when they do not design or know they can get it cheaper? Personally, I would not pay for the software unless you sold it to me for 1/10th the price(and I had a use for it), and that you could reproduce the licenses.(Don't want pirated software)

Agreed, mostly about the pirated part. In addition, the software isn't that interesting in itself, for one, it's rather specialized (Auto CAD), second, it's redundant (Photoshop 3, 4, 5, 6?). Finally, you seem to only provide the software on the SSD, rather than a way to install them, that presents a huge demerit. I would honestly say it would be pushing it to get $1,000 for that software as a unit....

As far as hardware, it looks fairly solid. Two areas I would complain about: SLI 660's, I'm not big on sli/crossfire setups due to microstuttering, so I would personally rather see a 680 in there. Second, you have what, 5 different storage devices? I assume it goes like this: boot drive SSD, two SSD's in raid 0, and the HDD being a media drive. This is a little convoluted. Again, you would get more from a buyer by making your storage methods more refined. To be honest, the most interesting part of your build is the power supply, and that is what would make me want to pay more for a build such as this.

Because of those two features, I would wonder how new some of this hardware actually is, it would seem that it was added over time, not all at once.

I don't care how new you say the build is, I don't know what you have done with it, as far as wear on the SSD, and how you've treated the memory/cpu. Because of this, I wouldn't give you more than $1000 for the hardware, $1100 on a good day.

TL;DR - ~$2000

I would give just over $700 for the hardware, as the 660 is not the best card, and as abraham said, people may want to buy cs6, but not a ssd with cs3,4,5,6, autocad, and some weird *** they wont use.

The drives were purchased over time, or will be rather. I originally bought a 90GB, but just purchased a second. I'll probably buy the 180GB soon. It isn't in RAID though, it's just a span or something, I don't know much about storage and I had a friend help me with that. The 660 as well, I had one at the start but I'll buy another soon. The software is extremely interesting, as I said I only listed some. I have a ton of photo, video, and music software. I didn't realize that I didn't list any of the music editing, because that's a big part too. I understand that most probably wouldn't pay more for all of the adobes, but I have them built up, I'm not going to just delete them. But of course, if I were to sell it I would include a way to install it. I've moved a majority of the installation files from the disks to a rather large USB and the others could be moved with no trouble. Also, if I were to sell it I wouldn't try to sell it to some random normal user. I'd sell it as a CAD-Oriented computer to someone who uses CAD-Based software a lot. But, I doubt that I ever will.

Is there market for used software licenses in general?

Who knows, haha. I doubt that I could sell just the software, but maybe.
