    Have you tried entering this stuff into google shopping to get an average price estimate and then adding this stuff up? Find its retail value then drop the price taking into consideration you can't sell it with any warrantee or customer service and its 6 months old.

    Ah, are you Pakistan based?

    This is your machine, its a HP Pavilion g3200 PC:
    http://www.techshop.pk/desktop-computer-systems/hp/hp-pavilion-g3117l-desktop-pc.html

    priced at 24,000 Indian rupees

    Tapping that into google's currency converter, that gives you:
    $558.50

    So thats about your retail price, assuming you want this value in US dollars, I don't know, you haven't really told us much about yourself. Still, I personally would think you'd struggle to sell this thing, so if I were you I wouldn't be looking to sell this for more than $400 dollars.

    Ah well, I'm somewhat of a pessimist, and as the owner I guess you're an optimist, so that probably gives you a nice range to work with. Good luck.
