    Not sure if this is the right place for posting this, but I have a desktop computer that I'm hoping to sell and not sure how much it's worth. I was hoping you guys could give me a rough estimate as to how much I can sell it for since I've already found someone who's interested.

    Specs:
    Pentium 4 (1.6)
    512 MB of (I think DDR)
    40 GB Hard Drive.
    CD-Burner
    Floppy
    With a 17" NEC MultiSync FE700 monitor.

    Thanks a lot.

    This is quite rough... Old tech is very cheap today. If it's not something rare and will used as uniqueish spare parts. Maybe 50-75$ max, just to get something fast and avoid building etc...

    What operating system is installed? Do you have recovery disks?

    I have a XP home edition CD with a couple other CDs for drivers; I was hoping I could sell it for around 100.

    The 1.6Ghz. P4 were made with both Northwood and Williamette cored processors. If the processor is a Northwood core (socket 478) probably around the $75 range. If it is a Williamette core (socket 423) probably $25-$35.

    I should have mentioned if the XP Home edition is a retail disk rather than an OEM disk you could add about $75 since it has residual value that the OEM disk does not have.

    It is a retail disk, so I guess I have to negotiate on that.

    A couple of months ago I bought an XP retail disk with Service Pack 1 in the green folder with the product key (genuine disk) paid $75.
