    I would probably say closer to 400 seeing as how it's got a monitor, 500gb hard drive, and a 3000mhz front side bus... also it's a decent graphics card... but the 2gb of ram brings the whole value down... Right now, used, I would give it a value of about 400. If you have the 64bit of vista though, I would recommend upgrading to 4gb of ram, then it would be worth probably around 550 or even 600...

    A Pint is a Pound the World Around

    You do realize that they're speaking in English Pounds, don't you? At the current exchange rate, that would make that computer worth $900.00 USD @ your highest estimate. The UK's prices are higher than ours, with the VAT on new equipment, but still, $900.00 used?
    Also. I find it inexplicable that you think adding $50.00 worth of RAM would raise the value up to possibly as much as 200.00 (whichever monetary unit you're using), which is actually $300.00 in USD..

    A used 17" monitor really isn't that much of a selling point, with brand new 22" inchers frequently on sale at about $150.00 (USD), or thereabouts. And yes, I know I'm speaking to our US shopping environment with that estimate..

    Not to mention the thread is almost 2 months old.
