what country are you in

whats the exact make and model

I would not expect a lot for that box, as its very cheap to buy desktops in UK now ...starting at around £350

WIth out the unknowns such as Make and model of system, or same for motherboard, power supply, and some others, I can get used computers meeting the same specs you provided, in my area for $300 US

If the machine is less than 1 year old you could expect to get approximately 60-65%
of replacement cost.

Your best bet in the UK is EBAY with a couple of pics do not over price the postage cost as this can be a put off, private local sales are a bit hit and miss,

thats the motherboard info
I was after the make - which should be written on the PC

Dell
HP
Packard Bell
Avant
Gateway
etc etc

I'm not a gamer - so not sure if a modern intergrated grahics card with 1GB of memory is the same as the 512MB seperate card you have
if so
look at this 3GB machine
http://www.currys.co.uk/martprd/sto...fm=2&sm=4&tm=0&sku=685103&category_oid=-35432

at currys - for £380

so for you machine you would need to be c£150 i guess ....
assuming you have the full kit
Flat screen, Keyboard, Mouse, Speakers if not part of screen

I would go with Etaf... although I think 150 is the higher end. The 88 is an old card, value about 30 quid, CPU maybe 40, HD about 30... about 100 quid. Thats a rough component value.

I would realistically expect £100, anything over that a bonus. That assumes mouse and keyboard, monitor,at the very least. With a monitor, will depend. If its 19 or above, could be worth a bit more.

Sorry, but in terms of value, its not a lot, but for what you can get new, not a lot of value.

Oh, and Etaf, would you mind if I ask which bit of Surrey you are in? Only as I am in the same area:) Dont worry, if its a no, its just curiosity.

Thanks for the help , I'm considering in investing in an alienware Pc so I was hoping to get a bit of money out of my current pc.

Oh and I have a 20 inch monitor is that worth keeping,or should I sell it all as a bundle?

Gulo Luseus:
Your right £150 was the very top end expectation all complete, and if anyone wants one - these days its difficult to find people willing to pay for 2nd hand ....
I live near Leatherhead, Epsom way M25 J9 :)

Whats the monitor - quality may be a lot better then the current cheaper screens sold - so you may want to think about keeping that - although selling just a box will be much harder ....
I have tried to give away old boxs to schools, charity shops etc, but they want it it all electrical tested, or will not accept anything ..

You may want to think about reformatiing and reloading the recovery CD to set to factory condition - just depends on how mch personal data you have on the PC
