Assuming it's fully functional and has a legal operating system installed (plus OEM recovery/installation disks), about $150 - $200.

No... Sorry... It's about 200$... CPU is kinda good, the RAM is OK, but the graphics card sucks pretty much and it isn't new... So... Yeah... Sorry

Unfortunately, you have to take into account that most people could purchase a new, comparable system for around $350. The fact that your system is used is going to depreciate it's value. The fact that it's using outdated technology, which generally increases the cost of upgrades, makes it even less valuable.

The graphics card you purchased is barely better than any on-board solution you may have had. As such, yes, I would consider it wasted money. The RAM, on the other hand, wasn't necessarily a bad purchase. You probably could have done better with only 4GB of RAM, but since DDR3 RAM is so inexpensive, I don't consider it a complete waste.

Well, The Graphics card is a Load lot better then before, My games got boosted about, 40-60 fps.... Not kidding, In the Experience index, the gaming rised from 4.2, to 6.3! The card i would say is a lot better, The Integrated card, was just a normal Intel Hd Graphics.... So, I guess i will have to live with it.....

thats only because you are comparing it to built in graphics, in reality, that card is extremely weak. on the used market it is close to worthless.

Well, its the best i could fit in there, since, The case only allows Low profile cards... Which is a bummer, So, Yeah, I guess i wasted money.... Time to save up.... :bounce: 

EDIT: I guess i could stick a low profile Radeon 7850 in there, but, MINIMUM PSU req, From eXtreme PSU calc, Says, 236, But, Recommended, 286, I only have 240... So, I guess that will not be happening.... :sol:
