:welcome: PaganGeek

Yours is a difficult question to answer as the computer is worth what a person is willing to pay for it, finding the person who wants the exact spec will be the hard part.
You may have to total up the cost of all of the parts and then add a small percentage on top so that you at least get your outlay back, try a system builders forum search on Google and see if any have an area where you could put the build up for sale.
Good luck with it and I hope that you are able to recover your costs.

Some guidance when selling http://www.pcworld.c...our_old_pc.html (ignore the "old" bit) but read the Common Questions - take note of the OS aspect.

You are welcome :thumbsup:
It is not a bad build with the exception of the un-named brand 400W PSU which would make me wary of making the purchase, if it is a good brand such as Antec, Corsair or Seasonic then advertise the fact.
