  1. How much do you guys think this computer would sell for?
    I built the computer and tested everything. It is all brand new and works fine.

    Pentium D 930 (3GHz Dual Core)
    ATI Radeon x1900xt (512MB 256-bit GDDR3)
    Western Digital Raptor (74GB 10,000RPM)
    Creative SoundBlaster Audigy SE
    1GB DDR2 667GHz Dual Channal RAM
    CD/DVD ROM Drive
    CD/DVD Burner Drive

    I customized on Dell and Alienware and it came out to be $2,200-$2,600.

    hmm, well last time i checked something on dell i could have built it for way less than its posted price. Sooo id take that into consideration.

    would around 1500-1700 be a reasonable price??

    computers, like cars, often sell for FAR less than what people expect. There is a market for resellers, but margins are very thin. I used to run a computer salvage business in the arly 1990s.

    If you low-level format the harddrive, it could sell to almost $3,000 U.S. Dollars if you can convince someone to buy it.

    about $1500.00 is the most i would pay for it, maybe $1800 if you get the right buyer

    how are you selling the PC, through ebay or your own cities newspaper. Post some pics and it would make our jobs easier.

    i'm planning on selling it on ebay, but i'm not sure how much to put it for...if i put it for too much no one will buy it...if i don't put it for enought i won't get enough money to build myself another one...i'm hoping for 500-700 profit

    i built it for 1100...

    i very highly doubt that you will make a $500 profit, or any at tedster said computers depreciate..i think you may have a better shot selling off the parts individualy..If you did i may be interested in the 1900xt.

    would it make a difference if the computer was brand new or not??
