    So I planned to use this rig as a gaming computer and part time WCG/F@H, but I decided that I do not need (not that I do not want) another rig running 24/7. I will end up working on a ATI/Nvidia setup in my main rig for gaming and folding at the same time.

    I want to sell it local first to save on shipping. Here are the components:

    AMD Athlon II X4 630
    2GB DDR2 OCZ Plat
    MSI 785GTM-E45 mATX MB
    500 GB Seagate HDD
    DVD-RW Drive
    Win 7 Home Premium
    Rosewill 450w PSU
    Cooler Master Sileo 500 case

    The GPU is either a 8800 series card or an ATI 5770

    What do you guys think is a fair price? I will not eBay it b/c its a hassle and personal preference. If I have a problem moving it locally I will consider selling it here or keeping it in the closet until I have the ability to run it 24/7.

    Thanks.

    Thats near what I was thinking. What about with the GPU? The OS is Windows 7 Home Premium OEM version if that is helpful for pricing.

    well since some people could get win 7 home premium for 30$ from the school (I was one of them) then i would say 50$ and the video card, if its a 8800GTS/GTX/Ultra(G80) 125$ max, 8800GT/GTS(G92) 75$

    5770 i wouldnt get rid of

    I see. Well I am going to test the 5770 to see if it plays nice with my 275s, if so I will keep it for sure. Thanks for the input.

    (OT: I wish that Win7 Deal was still on, cause I wanted to pick up one more copy of 7 Pro :ohwell:)
