    i can tell you, based that my build is damn near identical, minus 4gb ram and my simple mobo, that it'd be around 500, 600 tops depending on how knowledgeable one is. I built my rig in specs origonally with a celeron G1610 for about $320, OS $80, so 400. Then i spent i believe $90? or $100 on my i5 3570k. Sooo minus $40(celeron) from $320=$280+$95(i5)=$375 for my current system had i just bought i5 first.

    for the additional 4gb i'd add another $30 and better mobo another $30= $435. plus OS= ~$535. Course i hope the Win 7 install is legit; and with all those parts used i personally wouldn't spend more than $400-450 for it. If i finished mine 6 months ago with a total component investment of $375, i could probably build a similar system with a better GPU for same price shopping TPU FS threads.

    Quick Quote: $450 tops

    Are you buying, selling or building this? (I assume its probably a used PC). There are definitely some good components there, that have some great worth used or not. RAM is RAM, and a 7200rpm hard drive tends to last a while.

    I would probably agree that for this, in used condition, $450 is about the maximum.
