Honestly, with the prices of a cheap PC at big box stores, you are asking a bit much. You can pick up a basic Vista machine for about $200-250, especially around xmas. I would say you could maybe get 100-150 for the whole package... maybe.

I would try craigslist and see if you can find someone locally that can pick it up. The shipping on a PC and a monitor would be like $100 atleast via UPS or fedex.

Do you still have that computer? I am looking for a set of restore disc's that came with it. I met this older lady at best buy and she told me how her computer has been acting up. After all that she described, I recommended her to restore it to factory condition but her restore discs are scratched up to bad for the comp to read. If you do have the 2 discs that came with that computer, is there anyway to burn a copy of those so I can get her computer running again. I called E-Machines/Gateway but they do not make them for that model any longer. She is 74 years old and lives alone and all she has is her computer. She cannot afford a new one and best buy told her it would be $300 to fix it. She is still trying to learn XP and she doen't want to start over with Vista. I felt sorry for her and tried to help her. So. My question to you is, can you burn a copy of those CD's so I can restore her computer back to factory condition. Sorry this was so long, I didn't mean it to be this long. Thanks for your time.

$300... $350 are both unrealistic for that system.

I honestly think you're going to be hard pressed to get more then $100 for that system. I've bought dozens of newer dell systems off ebay for between 90-250 with much better specs.

i have the case for my old emachine in my trunk lol... the mobo w\ an amd 3200+ and onboard ati is at my parents house. That computer served me well for a long time but with the price of new components now.. older stuff is basically throw-away.

@F14 - you could get an xp oem disk for cheap off craigslist or ebay and just do a complete reinstall, backup any of the files.
