I'm no expert, but that's a pretty decent rig, I just sold my old rig for $300 it was a duo core E8400 3.0ghz 4gb ram BFG 9600 and everything else is just stock on it.. I would think you could get ATLEAST $400-500 ? again no expert

500-550 max.
And when you sell it and want to build one, you can head on over to my thread. :D

Thx appreciated, but I already know what I want, not my first build!

Anyway this is just in case I do decide to sell it.

I just want it to know what a would be a good price to sell my current pc.

I'd say you could probably pick up closer to 700-800 for it if you sell it right.

Now, someone extremely tech savvy may think the price is too high, but say you provide tech support if there are issues for someone who doesn't know quite as much.
Also, you can't really price a computer on parts alone, since it is built and work put into building should be considered.

And while the computer is used, it is a good deal better than most desktops sold at retail stores. So craigslist could be an option if you can deal with the sketchiness of it all.

You could still just run it by me, see if it gets my stamp of approval. :p

Why does everyone say that Craigslist is so sketchy? I've used it a few times, and I had no feelings of sketchiness. Hm. I must be insane, or insanely sane.
