    how old is it ?
    I don't know the market in Australia so unable to advise really - but can guess

    how much was it new and look to see if in the usual stores theres any deals on this box

    then about half the price or more depending on age

    did you get any software with the PC - windows 7 and license CoA ?

    Dell in Australia configured a system roughly - came to 2,500

    so i would guess 1000 to 1500

    but i DONT NOW the 2nd hand market in Australia

    techbuy
    http://www.techbuy.com.au/p/115800/PCs_-_Gaming/Techbuy/TBOS115800.asp
    about 2500 maybe a bit more new

    Awesome that's what I was hoping for.

    It's 4 months old. I'm not sure what it was worth brand new (I didn't buy it), but I think it was about $2,000 + extra for assembly. And yeah it came with Windows 7 and Office and Norton.

    I guess I'll just give it a shot and lower the price accordingly.

    Thank you.

    Yeah I think that's the software that came with it.

    I'm selling because I need to move overseas and need more money.
