    Monitor included?

    I'm bad at full system appraisals, but I know somebody else is going to ask that.

    Realistically the computer in your specs is not great neither is the one you just posted. I’m not trying to put you down by any means. But you’re asking for its resale value, so I’d say between $200. If you could get $250 for it that would be great. However, you can go buy an eMachine, Gateway, or HP for a little more with better specs and more memory bigger HD capacity etc + they could even put a graphic card in themselves.

    Well if you have no better use for them once you get your new i7 rig, you could crunch and fold with them :) That's what I was suggesting.

    A pretty good number would be about equal to what you can find each individual part for that system on the interwebz, minus about 5%. (not retail either, current pricing or private party)

    Your second rig that you posted in a post would see for about 200-300 bucks. With and if you add cold cathodes and perform some nice wire management you can probable scrounge maybe 600-650 for your MAIN rig. The x48-q6600 with the Dark night is a great combo, and the 8800gts 640mb is good for most games on high settings. If you also sell on eBay you can probable get 400 bucks and above for the rig alone. You also have a corsair psu, which isn't something that really lowers in value by more then 50% so thats a plus to. :toast:
