  1. Hello everyone, I would like to sell my desktop to save up enough for a laptop for school. I was just wondering how much it was worth, so i could sell it away on ebay or on an ad site like redflagdeals

    Specs:

    Amd athlon 64 3200+
    Nvidia 7800 GT
    1 GB ram (2x512)
    Asus A8V E-SE motherboard
    CD/DVD lightscribe duallayer burner
    450 Watt PSU
    300 GB Maxtor Harddrive
    Vista Ultimate
    A Nest tower with the 2 led light bars on the side and a transparent cover
    Floppy drive lol


    Sry if i am not specific enough, but i hope you can tell me an approxiamate price range I can sell my computer for. thanks

    you can buy a better pc than that from some sites for less than 200 bucks.

    best thing running for you is the gpu and the hard drive.

    if you upgraded the video card and still have the old one, try selling that pc with the older card installed and sell the 7800gt stand alone. you may get better results this way.

    Rough off the top of my head estimates:

    $15 Amd athlon 64 3200+
    $100 Nvidia 7800 GT
    $10 1 GB ram (2x512)
    $15 Asus A8V E-SE motherboard
    $10 CD/DVD lightscribe duallayer burner
    $25 450 Watt PSU
    $50 300 GB Maxtor Harddrive
    $0 if you don't give him the disk and CoA $200 otherwise Vista Ultimate
    $15 A Nest tower with the 2 led light bars on the side and a transparent cover
    $1 Floppy drive

    Total $241 without the OS
    $441 with

    If I was buying, I doubt you could convince me to buy Vista Ultimate off of you, hardware only.
