Heya, I have a desktop PC I am thinking of selling in order to fund the purchase of a MacBook.

The PC specs are:
Silverstone TJ04 case w/ 500w psu
E8400 CPU
2x 1gb Geil ddr2-667 RAM
XFX 8600gt 256mb
Seagate Baracuda 250gb 7200rpm
2x lg dvd writer / drd reader
Asus p5k pro MoBo

Monitor:
Samsung SyncMaster 940B (no dead pixels, great Cond)

Logitech MX518 Mouse
Logitech basic multimedia keyboard

PC comes with no Software / operating system.

I am hopeing that this system is still worth just over a grand. What do you guys think I will get for it?

Cheers

If you're selling to a fellow geek, take the pricespy price for each part from the first reputable seller (usually ignore the lowest 2-3) add it up for each part and subtract ~30% since it's 2nd hand.

If you're selling to the typical trademe user, take the pricespy value and add 10%, put an OS on and go crazy.

I think Ragnor is my soulmate.
