Sorry but we cannot provide a valuation on the computer as there are too many variables such as how old each part is, has the hardware been overclocked and has the computer been looked after as three examples.

There is no HDD on your list so add circa $60 to the the price I have for a 1TB 7200rpm 64MB cache Seagate Barracuda or WD Blue, $1014.62 gets all of those items new as of 10.00 am UK time on 15/03/14, see list

You are the one who must decide (and risk offending your friend if you offer him less) and we can only offer you some pointers.

Also worth a mention is that there is an imbalance in some of the parts + your intended use also needs to be considered, for high end gaming for example 8GB of Ram is enough but the video card not the best and the PSU while it is top of the range cost around $150 more than what is actually required, these are in no way intended as criticism but I would only use the aforementioned components if I had a GTX 780 or above video card/two high end cards in Crossfire or Sli.
