    maybe $300-400 tops

    the resion is because the procosor is older technogy and the viedo card is more on the budget line

    I might say 500 US dollars or something. I'm not a pro, though.
    Hoping to help

    $600 dollars max coz the CPU is a bit outdated as is the video card.

    Isn't the X1300 a newer card?

    It's over a year old, hence the term outdated. It's an X1000 series card but a lower end one.

    In the UK you would be looking at about £375 - £425 that would equate to quite a lot more in Dollars when converted, I cant understand why or how the US undervalue such stuff "very odd" :D

    That's because computer hardware is taxed in the UK.

    It has 1 GB of RAM running in dual-channel which is enough to get an estimate price. But yes, the only thing missing would be the hard disk drive specs.

    You say it has 1gig of dual-channel ram.. but not if it's ddr vs. ddr2.

    In fact, whether it's LGA775 or Socket 478 is left-out also... thus it could be a close-ended AGP system.

    I'd figure the market would be wise to not invest in a "new" system that would be ddr (rather than ddr2), AGP vs. PCI-E, and socket 478 vs. LGA775. This would make the system three-way obsolete right off the bat and therefore not commanding a very high selling price.

    If it's LGA775, PCI-E and DDR2 memory, you may be able to fetch a decent price.

    Another core component detail is missing, the mobo make and model.
    And Sharkfood has mentioned quite critical details that would affect the overall pricing of the system, although I doubt it has DDR2 RAM. I could be wrong though. Insanebinky hasn't replied in quite a while so I wonder where he is. Only he can provide the right info.

    I think you guys should check his profile for more info... it has all the details on his system he is selling... unless if he is selling a diffrent system... every thing on there seems to be same....

    Whoops I forgot about that. Thanks Cyber. But it's more of a dilemma, since the board is capable of using DDR as well as DDR2 RAM and we don't know what is present. However, it seems to be in the region of $400-500 depending on the RAM. It has an AGP Express slot so the price will be lower than $600 surely.
