Windows 7: What would you want in a New/Used basic Computer? I need some ideas

What would you want in a New/Used basic Computer? I need some ideas

I need some ideas to make a somewhat basic PC really cool!!
I built this to play with it some and then sell it and i'm just not having any luck with it, im guessing maybe because of the smaller SSD drive but my price is set firm at just a few bucks over what i have into it parts wise.
Heres the specs:

AMD A-5300 3.6Ghz Dual Core APU W/HD Radeon Graphics
MSI FM2-A75MA-E35 Motherboard
4Gb Crucial Ballistix 13333Mhz Ram
Corsair H 50 Liquid Cooler
LG 24X DVDrw Multi Drive
Coolermaster Thermal Master Case with 3 120mm Fans
500 Watt Powersupply
Used 30Gb OCZ SSD Drive with newest firmware and optimized for windows 7
(16.5Gb free space for programs and files)
Can add 80GB Sata Hdd for a few bucks more
Fresh install of Windows 7 Ultimate 64 Bit Edition Activated and Updated and SSD Optimized
Security Essentials Anti-virus

so i have had this listed locally for a few weeks now, almost a month and usually i dont have a problem selling any of the used computers i build but this one is being tuff, maybe cause its all new and anyone can just go buy the same parts themselves,, i dont know but i havent even had one inquiry!!

Im not listing any prices or anything here on Windows 7 forums because it is only forsale locally and i dont want to sell it to anyone here i just want some advice and or some cool ideas that may help boost my sale.

ALL parts are NEW with the exception of the small 30gb SSD Drive,, and as i said above i have an 80GB 7200rpm Sata drive i could add for more space. I thought of maybe installing the 80gb as a storage drive and add a bunch of movies to that drive to go with the PC but i have found in the past adding additional software or movies usually doesnt help any.

Any ideas or help would be much appreciated.

Heres a few pics of it too

You are using a liquid cooling on a system with only 30GB of storage & that includes the HD?
Get rid of the liquid cooling and invest in more HD space.
500GB would be the minimum you should consider for even a small build.

True that however my thought was that the person who buys it could make that upgrade as well as a good videocard or a dual graphics compatable Radeon card to have a some what decent lower end gaming machine,,, but yea your right i'm thinking i should put the stock cooler back on it and knock a few more bucks off the price and use the H50 for something else,,, my original intention was that the H50 would help the sale more than anything but now that i think of it,,, it could be hampering it instead,,,,, I also have pretty much the same spec's build in a small home theater case with the stock cooler on it and two drives with a total of 320gb space and its not generating any intrest either.....

Im not a space hog i dont save JUNK i like a smaller drive and i could be wrong but i think the smaller drives perform better than the larger drives.
but yea your right people want space so maybe i should tear this thing down and get a bigger drive and up the price some.

30GB is... pathetic.. for today.
15 years ago, okay. But now I believe you need at least 29GB for windows to be installed with most of it's updates.

I wouldn't be able to do anything with 16.5GB. Even if I used my computer for what a normal user would. It would barely last me a month.

There is a reason why hard drives are so big now. Applications, and files are more high quality, therefore they require more space.

You should at least limit the SSD to the OS, and get a 500gb HD to go with it. Perhaps after selling the closed loop kit you have there.

Uhm. I'm sorry.. but you could use some help when it comes to marketing something you want to sell.
Just sell the closed loop and buy a couple of drives to go into it.

I am more than sure a user will buy it for it's capacity instead of buying it for water cooling.
The system doesn't need water cooling at all.
