Help with price quote on older computer

Dude, I bought a Dell!

I recently bought a new computer and would like to sell my old one to help recoup the expenses. As fast as this stuff becomes obsolete, I don't want to ask to much, but some of this stuff must have some value, right? It is a home-built system, not a manufactured one like Gateway or Dell. Do you guys have any info? Would $200 be fair? Thanks y'all.

Considering the prices of new PC's I think you won't get much more than $200. If even that much.

Good luck coming up with Office 98 to include with it!

Seriously, though...not too bad a price. One question, though: does that include a monitor? I didn't notice one specified, and that might add a bit of value to a first-time user - something they can run without any add-ons. Even if you could pick up a used 15" and charge a bit more for the bundle, it might help move it faster.

That is, of course, assuming you don't already have a buyer.

Hell, I'll buy it if you can make it a bit cheaper.

It would be worth ... not that much. Piecemeal the most valuable component of your system would be your aluminum case (if it's a good one). Next would be your burner.

People would look at your system and then look at what an present "entry level" system would be priced at and you would be looking at a fraction of that.

Personally, unless you really need cash you may want to keep it for a second system. Alternatively, selling it to a family with kids may net you a buyer more readily.

Good luck.
