    I would say maximum 600 Pounds.
    A similar rig (having less HD-space though) is brandnew for sale at www.tiny.com for £699.-

    Are you serious?

    The AMD 64, motherboard, RAM, and hard drives cost more than that

    When I buy used pc stuff I will only pay 1/4 to 1/2 at most of it's "current" value. One of the biggest things if you have that 754 pin socket over the newer 934 pin cpu socket, 754 is already out the door :( that and with PCI express slot becoming the standard... view things hold there vaule in PC world, now your powersupply and flat panel hold the most value.

    600 pounds would be a good price for that very powerful "used" computer

    You should have told me before I built my computer last month ;)
    Anyways, I paid about $1350 Canadian for my system last month (see profile). So I think you should ask for about $1000CAD.
