    I am thinking of selling my current machine to a relative and building my own. My relative just wants a half-decent PC as the one he has is very poor, but i'm not sure how much to ask for my machine.

    These are the specs for my machine :-

    AMD Athlon 798MHz CPU
    384MB SDRAM
    Toshiba DVD-ROM/CD-RW
    NVIDIA RIVA TNT2 Model 64/Model 64 Pro (built into motherboard)
    56k Modem
    Windows ME

    If anyone has any knowledge of buying/selling second-hand PC's and has any advice, let me know :cool:

    if it is just the tower without the monitor, keyboard, mouse, or speakers I would sell it for about $200-$250 but I have seen people TRY to sell them for more

    Hi,

    I would be tempted to sell this system for about £380-£480. It sounds like a good sturdy system able to run most things easily. Make it about £400 if you like the relative and £480 if you don't.

    Hope this info helps. Don't sell it for $250 dollars!!! that's only about £120 :D

    Thanks,

    Peaker.

    I would not sell it for more than more than $250 because I just built a new 1 ghz for $350 with about the same stuff

    Hi Stan,

    You have to remember that we live in "Rip off Britain". Stuffs not so inexpensive over here. Even the things we make in this country and export are more expensive here??!! $350 would about cover the cost of a decent monitor, case, mouse and keyboard and maybe a comfy chair; if were lucky.

    Cheers,
    Peaker.:p
