Hi there, it's really hard to tell the price of a used computer. While one person may think it's worth $500, if someone only offers $300 then your computer is worth $300. These figures are an example.

If you intend on selling it, take a look in your local newspaper/trading post/online and find similar systems and their advertised prices, this will give you an idea on what you can sell your computer for.

Quite frankly, your computer has old hardware in it and I wouldn't even consider purchasing it myself, unless it was extremely cheap ($50 or less).

If i had the money i would probably buy it for $200-300 maybe $400 if you pop in a better power supply(500w atleast), cause some of the hardware isnt that old, like the video card the geforce 8 series is fairly new(2007) it has 2gb of ram, 250gb HD, its good for someone who doesnt want power and just wants a running computer for like work or something.

I know this thread is a year old, but it is still pulled up in searches...so, here's my 2cents.

Electronics improve at such a fast rate & have so many companies whose competition forces prices down. Once most people start thinking 'my computer is kanda old. maybe I should replace it', resale is pretty much out of the question. A system that is 0-3 yrs old might be able to give you a few more years by upgrading RAM. If the system is pushing 4 or more years you may want to begin shopping for a whole new system. Depending on finances, you could keep your monitor.

What do you do with your old system? Give it to someone who is in need of a computer, short on funds, and who only has moderate computer needs. Donate it to the local Salvation Army or similar organization (don't forget to ask for a donation slip to use at tax time ...you can tell them the value of the PC & they'll write it on the slip, but be reasonable). If you really need at least some cash out of it right away, check other ads as was mentioned in a previous post.

What do you do with old RAM or other components after an upgrade? I have no idea, which is what led me to this thread in the first place.

Donate or advertise them, if no joy there just find electronics recyclers who will take the parts off you.
