    I'm fairly certain that is a laptop he has in his system specs...

    Anyhow, as for price, I heard the general rule of thumb was roughly 40% less than new prices for fairly modern equipment so :

    (using newegg.com for prices)
    abit at8 onboard audio/net = $120 retail
    x2 3800+ 2.0 = $75 retail
    2x1 gb g skill = $125 - $160 (not sure if you have value or performance memory and what model)
    160 gig HDD = $60
    x1800XT 512 = $250 (cheapest I could find retail was through a froogle search)
    dvd+-rw = $35
    lian li black midtower = $100 - $225 (depending on your model)
    19 in viewsonic ws lcd = $200 - $240 (depending on model)

    So, add it up and take off 40% and you should have a good idea of what it's worth (give or take 5-10%)
    Easy Rhino says thanks.

    His mobo is a S939 board and his memory is PC3200 DDR400 so I think it's safe to say that the processor is a socket 939 AMD64. :D
