How long have you had it and if I may ask, how much did it cost you originally?
Bear in mind that if you sell it, you're very unlikely to get back anywhere near what you paid for it originally.

Yeah you will not get anywhere near what you paid for that system originally new..

All of that stuff is outdated in terms of processor socket and memory type and everything on the computer part.. The motherboard/cpu platform is like 2 generations behind.

If you are including all of that stuff together in 1 package to sell you could get abit of money but I dont think someone would pay that much for all of that in a total package deal unless it was priced just right.

You might want to keep that speaker / sound system setup its still pretty good even though its a 5.1 surround sound which is still plenty good enough.


Its hard to say exactly how much you can get for everything but like the LCD monitor would be worth about $80 MAX, the computer tower with all accessories about $400-$450 MAX all of that stuff can be bought now for that much or cheaper plus your pc is very used. If you sold it to the right person you could get that much for it if they didnt know much about computers but I certainly would not pay that much for that pc this day in time.

Id say with everything you could probably sell it for $550-$600 MAX with everything LISTED including scanner and Soundsystem.. You might still want to keep the sound system yourself and you can still get about $550 for everything.. Remember this is coming from me you might be able to sell it more to a person that knows nothing about pc's..

Lol I honestly expected a lil more than that.
How much I sepnt on the comp??
Hmm, lets' start. . . .
I paid $1800 for the tower+keyboard which were bought on 01/29/2004. With that I spent $350 on the monitor + $40 on the UPS. Bought the speaker system a month or two after for $350. Then summer 2005 I bought an additional 1GB RAM (OCZ4001024ELDCGE-K) for $156, at the same time I also bought the NEC DVD Writer for $47. One of the Samsung modules (I had got 2x512MB) that came with the computer stopped working so I sold the working one for $30 & the defective one is lying around somewhere. Bought the graphics card for $184 in summer 2006 to replace NVIDIA GeForce FX5700 Ultra (128MB), haven't sold it yet. Bought another 1GB RAM in Feb. 2007 for $100 + two new front fans (old ones LED stopped working) for $20.
To sum up. . . .
$1800(tower) + $350(monitor) + $40(UPS) + $350(speakers) + $156(RAM-2005) + $47(DVD-Writer) - $30(RAM module sold) + $184(graphics card) + $100(RAM-2007) + $20(new fans) = $3017
I guess selling it makes no sense, how many years do you think this machine has got in still?

Everything is decent there but the graphics card, update that and you might be able to get another year out of it but I can't see much more.
Since it's AGP your kinda limited but none the less.
Kinda think that system has hit a dead end and shouldn't be upgraded though because if you get a new graphics card you won't be able to use it on your future build. Your call.
James

P.S. It doesn't matter how much you spend on a computer, age is the dependent factor. I think jrm20 was pretty fair for pricing it out he might have even been a bit on the high side. You can get a dual core computer now for 500$ new.

Fair enough it's probably not going to game very well after about another 2 - 4 months, to be fair I would say no gaming after summer 07, the way the games run right now keeps me well over satisfied, games like F.E.A.R., Command & Conquer 3. Anyway, forget gaming for a second, for a daily usage computer, how many more years has this computer got, rough idea? Daily usage means IM, Internet, Music, Pictures, Videos etc. everything except gaming or anything that requires a powerful graphics card (video editing etc.). I know this can vary from person to person & what standard they like their computer to be running at, but I mean without any kind of lagging or slow response. Also, wear & tear can play a part in a computer's life, can't it? So this is a lil over 3 years old, is that actually "old" or not really?

As long as you don't up date the OS it'd last as long as all the parts run. Look at people stilling running windows 95 with no lagg but have components as old as time itself.
