Just built it, how much do you think this will be worth?
Specs:

Antec P160w Window case
MSI NX6600GT 128 mb ram
2x 512 corsair ram w/ 2 2 2 5 timings
3x western digital raptors in raid 5
AMD 64 Athlon 3500+
Asus A8N-SLI-DELUXE
Windows Xp Pro
How much is that worth?

SLI, 3 raptors, dual channel 1gb memory - all very good
6600GT - good, but not excellent

I think that system is worth more than $1500.

Over $1500? thats way over exaggeration. My brother got his Dell for $660 on ebay with these specs:

3.0EGhz LGA775 CPU
Geforce 6800 256mb PCIe
512mb Dual Channel DDR2 RAM
40gb HD SATA
Onboard Audio
DVD-ROM

He switched out the DVD-ROM for a DVD-RW
40gb SATA for a Raptor 36gb 10k RPM
Audigy ES

I reinstate my price to $1000 mainly for SLI..

Prices approximated based on retail (with exceptions):

Neopower - $125
Antec P160WF - $130
MSI 6600GT - $190
Corsair XMS 2-2-2-5 RAM -$250
3xRaptors in RAID 5 - $300 or $525 OEM depending on capacity
A64 3500+ - $275
Asus A8N-SLI Deluxe - $225
WinXP Pro - $90 (OEM)

Total : $1585 / $1810.

Give each tag a 20% reduction because the system is [barely] used, and you get $1268 / $1448. Okay, I was a bit off with my initial estimate, so I'll amend it to $1200 or $1400.

Edit: Heh, sorry I got too technical. I tend to over-do some posts. :P
