    So I'm selling my old computer now (just the tower). I'm looking to do it via craigslist or something local since many people around here have crappy computers and there's no stores to get parts and blah blah blah, so even if you have some money your pickings are slim (and it'll save me on shipping costs and hassle and stuff).

    It's a Lenovo Thinkcentre M55 8811-VM4 that I've upgraded with more RAM, a DVD burner, and a 500GB harddrive.

    Speccy...

    What do you think would be a fair asking price? I'm not afraid to go all salesman with "It's got 10 USB ports!" and determine how many images/songs you could fit on the drive and point out that it's got 3GB of RAM and still has an empty slot for more and all that crap. XD Though I will be pointing out that it's BTX and not a gaming computer.

    I think about 100$.. you can build new computers pretty cheap nowadays, temperature of the graphic card is pretty high... might need to clean it or something because that could be bad for it's lifespan.

    About ~$100?

    It's a good HTPC but that's about it.

    If I was to be brutally honest I would say "meh" I don't think you would even get a buyer for that. I also don't like they temps if that's the pc on idle? :S

    Really no more than 100 dollars. And even that would be good fortune.
