Without an OS, I would say $400 to $450. Maybe $50 more with an OS. But it will be a hard sell if you do not find someone in your neighborhood. The shipping cost would be prohibitive. I like that Kuma processor with the light OC.

Prices NEW

Processor: $70
Memory: $160
GPU: ~$200 (averaged)
HDD: $60 (averaged)
DVD Drive: ~$30 (averaged)
PSU: ??? (guesstimate $80)
Mobo: ~$115
------------------------------
$715, but that's without the case, NEW.

You could still sell it for around $550-600 since it's not old, except for the CPU. It's a pretty good system though. I'd definitely get a second opinion though.

yeah, i am actually selling this desktop locally so it's less troublesome for me.
i am not sure but $400~$450 seems a bit low for this desktop.


yeah it's still a pretty good system since it still runs BF2BC, GTA 4, Metro 2033(dx10) all flawlessly at highest setting. I was thinking to sell this one for $600 but still not sure..

thx guys! but the price range is still wide... i sort of need more people's advices to narrow down the range. give me a hand guys!!

Sure, you should be looking for the maximum price - if you can find a buyer. Your selling point will be the GPU, else you have to compare with offerings like these:

I would think that $500 or so is probably what I would ask. See, if I am going to buy a machine which is 10 months old, I want to save some cash. While I realize that new might run $700....I might also be able to upgrade or change some parts out and custom build my own for $800....but since I don't have the flexibility in what I get on day 1 with a used computer...I'm naturally going to lean for a lower price.....not to mention with a used computer it's not EXACTLY what I want and it wasn't put together by me..which takes some of the fun out of it too.
