Search for your parts on e-bay in used condition.
Then filter by completed auctions. In green, you will see what the parts actually sold for.
In general, you will get more from the parts than from a complee pc.

your computer is still capable if you add in a 7870, 7850, or a gtx 660

With that processor, a 7750 would be the most powerful card he can put in there without much going to waste.

That is going to sell for basically nothing
1) The HDD is an old 160GB drive, being SATA will not help this
2) PSU is probably questionable at best (being a brand that I don't recognize)
3) GPU is low end, even for when it came out
4) CPU was mid-range, low end now
5) GPU was also OC'ed, meaning it has less life left than normal, not a good thing when buying second hand
6) MOBO is old and has almost no upgrade path

1)HDD is good enough for a simple user
2)PSU is from an Indian Brand so I dont mind as i live in india.
3)GPU is pitty much ok.(It can support MOH Warfighter on Max Settings with an average 30-40 fps when overclocked)
4)CPU is really good so i dont agree to point
5)GPU will be oc'd by a expert so i never mind
6) I agree
Thank You and your reply is appreciated.

While this is true, it just isn't worth much money, particularly used

Can't find a respectable price for a drive that small as they don't tend to make them anymore, ie just about worthless

That doesn't help in the slightest, if the PSU is crap then it isn't worth much, find a technical review that shows it is good, otherwise its crap

Not really for gaming, it was considered low end when it came out, OC'ing is not going to help much, is worth $50 new, used puts it into the $25 range used
also doubt it plays MOH Warfighter on Max settings with 30-40 fps

It would mean that it is running as fast as a GTX650 Ti, and that isn't even at a respectable resolution (ie not 1080p)

really, a cpu that came out in October 2008, almost 4.5 years old, is really good, not really, mediocre at best

whether or not an expert OC's it or not, it still reduces the effective lifetime of the chip, just a though
