i took your parts you listed and got the prices off pricewatch.com for each part by the parts you got about 850 in the pc on current prices so id sell it for 950-1000.

You would never get even parts value from anybody that "knows" computers. That is the sorry truth. :(

The problem with the machine is "socket 754". It is one socket behind the times, and soon to be 2 sockets behind.

It is a good solid machine with upgrade ability but it is still outdated. I am not knocking your machine, I am in the same boat in a way. I have a 939, but it is sitting in an AGP board.

Truthfully, used machines are pretty hard to sell. Since you can shop the bargain sites and pick up really good deals on new machines, it's tough to get top dollar for used ones.

Yeah, you have a point there. Its a fine PC i think. Runs any new game well enough.

No harm in trying.
