I would like for you guys to see how much my hunk a junk is worth, just for future reference. (This is my first post here, long time subscriber to the magazine.)

Specifications:
RAM: 4GB of Corsair DDR2 clocked at 800MHz, 2GB sticks.
Videocard: ATI Radeon HD 4890 1GB (Stock clocks)
CPU: Intel Quad-core Q6600 clocked at 2.4GHz
Hard-drive: 200Gb split partitions into C: which is 146GB and 80GB for D: drive (I know that's more than 200GB, let's say, around 200GB)
DVD-Drive: LG RW DVD-R DL pretty sure it's 22x read speed or something.
Motherboard: ASUS P5Q-E
PSU: 750 Watt Power Supply
Case: Regular Mid-Tower, it could fit the 4890 just barely. Colour is silver and black.
Card-reader: Vantec Card Reader, supports CF/MD, SM/XD and MS/MS Pro and SD/MMC.
Extra krap: About 12 USB 2.0 ports all together, extra fan for the 4890. The 4890 idles at about 38C. They case seems to have a very good air flow, the CPU temperature is unknown, but it's probably due for new thermal paste. (1-2 years since it's been redone)

I think that's about it, thanks in advance.

What is the model number for the HDD? Did you build this system? If there is any more info on your system that would be great. I can give you general pricing for generic items but you might want more specific pricing. Model numbers are your friend.

Heh, well I would say do the pricing of everything else together but the HDD. I'm thinking of keeping that and formatting it for myself. :)

Thanks again. And no, we got this custom built by a shop owner. Which now that I've learned the basics are am now going to build my own rig.

Judging from what I've seen on this forum, around $300 total but I could be wrong.

The price really depends on where you are trying to sell the machine. On my local craigslist, buyers are retarded and I see machines like this one going for $700 all the time. However, I would say that machine is prolly worth around $400.

Your system new would be around $900-$1000, best guess. Used usually takes 50% off the top, so 450-500 again this is at most I would think it would be closer to $350. The parts of your system that will bring the most will be the Video card, CPU, MB, Memory. In that order. Since the other parts are generic it's hard to say more.
