This is what the systems are worth approx. IMO. I can't say what people who's only choice is the buy because those people are....special and don't know better.

System 1: ~$140, $200 if you add a GPU of lest than 2 years old.
System 2: ~$215
System 3: ~$800
System 4: ~$575

Feel free to correct because I just realized it see two 4830's, I didn't see that before and I am not up to date on the "Intel tax".

~$880

C'mon I'm sure a water cooled system with a $200 SSD is worth more than $800, especially with arguably high end parts like those.

Actually if system 3 was parted out could get up to 1000 for it. I say 900 if sold as a whole.

So you think parting it out would get more cash? Hm. Well the money is certainly worth the effort. Thing is that the case has been modded to fit the MCR320 on top... So at the very least, the P180 has to stay with the MCR320. Might be hard to find a buyer.

And yes, System 2 is definitely for sale, and there's a strong possibility of me selling System 3. Money talks. No official FS thread yet, but PM me if interested. ;)

Thanks for the opinions so far, any more?
