    The games that are on steam cant be sold, doing this is goes against Steam's TOS. Accounts which have been bought, sold or traded will be disabled. This includes any other accounts in your possession at the time of the sale or trade, regardless of whether those accounts were also sold or not.

    That's right, its also common practice to format, so unless you include a fresh copy of windows, or a brand new Windows 7 64bit OEM box, I wouldn't count it at full price.

    However, if it is a new copy of windows, I'd price it at $650 - $700.
    This time, i'll write an abstract justifying it.
    Windows 7 (assuming it's new) $180
    Monitor - $250
    Fan controller, DVD drive, and all the other peripherals - $50
    And about $200 for the core components.

    $200 for the motherboard, cpu, ram, hdd, psu, and video card sounds about right.

    How do you know those are all Steam games Dustin? I know MW2 is since it forces everyone to use Steam, can't comment on the rest though.

    In any case, everything included like that I'd second HK's price of ~ $650. I think you could get more selling off those pieces separately from the monitor, peripherals, the PC & even the games. However like Dustin points out if those are Steam games and at least MW2 is, selling it violates there TOS. Reason why anything you buy on Steam isn't actually yours. If they are retail games minus Steam tie-ins you should be alright, but even then online components usually still have some registration need.

    You could also sell your video card separately, XFX cards if you registered come with a double-lifetime warranty and I don't see why you couldn't get at least $100 dollars as it still a good card.

    I said "The games that are on steam cant be sold", i never said all of those games was on steam. I know Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2 and Mafia 2 have to be linked to a steam account to be played.

    Clearly I didn't read everything :haha: . Didn't know about Mafia 2 either but I don't think I'll be getting that game anytime soon.
