    as of today, (from one site I checked) $1 = £0.50615

    so that would be £253.08

    I would say closer to $300, or 150 pounds.

    £199.99, people think they save money when you add .99 instead of rounding it to £200.

    for 500 (US) you can probably get a laptop with those specs, I would agree with mfpants, around 150 pounds

    mfpants, you're the closest without going over...

    sorry, I had a Price is Right flashback.

    Short answer: next to nothing. PC's aren't worth crap after 6 months. 1.9 Ghz, while more than enough for me, isn't very fast compared to even most laptops.


    (It's another reason I love Macs - I sold my year old iBook for $900 AFTER the Intel machines were announced).

    unfortunately, if i were in the states... i wouldn't buy that computer for more than $350...

    PCs are so cheap these days... if you catch a sale you can get an LCD monitor and computer with twice those specs for around $500. So I'd imagine you'll have a hard time selling it for that price.

    Even in Canada. I bought mine with a 22" monitor for $500. The CPU is an Athlon 64 3200+.

    1 gig ddr memory (ram) - $20
    80 gig hdd - $20
    dvd-rom - $5
    dvd-rewriter - $10
    case is a bubble light 2 with 2 blue led tube lights at the front , 4 multicoloured case fans , 2 on the side , 2 on the rear , -$40?

    genius 5.1ch surround sound system with subwoofer and speakers , - $50

    realistic look at it
    pc parts just dont hold value, I mean the current popular intels are now worth not much.. now the E8400/E8500 are out [​IMG]

    You would probably get a better price if you sold the parts individually. It has badass add ons but it seems to be outdated.

    Are u being sarcastic?

    Anyway, sell the parts individually or sell it under 'Perfect student's desktop. Great for work. Only $399 AUD.

    yeah, you will be lucky to get around the £200 mark. ideally you're looking at £150.

    agreed with r-unit, sell individual components.
