    As the title states. But leave out ONE 250GB hdd and ONE 750GB hdd, and my Antec 1200.

    Throw in the Sunbeam Transformer case into the price.

    With or without screen? I'm guessing without...

    This is a guess so don't freak out... I don't know much about Q9450

    I know it's a very expensive (like 300~400$ right) CPU... This is a pure guess.. like 700$?

    Yeah without screen. CPU does 3.8GHz 24/7.

    Ill reword this too. How much do you think I could get for it on my local Craigslist?

    Just word it in Craigslist as an awesome gaming machine. It even comes with a server cpu for max performance...mention some case fans, lights and crap..Ask for $1200 and you will get some sucker to buy it for probably $1000 and they will feel all cool that they haggled you down $200.

    If you were to sell it here on TPU, you could probably get no more then $700 for it.

    After a bit of research, I must say you can probably get 600$ for it... 500$ if you want to sell fast and/or for sure and/or depending where you live... Sell it here for 600$ shipped and see if it sells

    $575+ship for the quick sale here at TPU. $750+ship low-ball on Craigslist. Closer to probly $825 if you sold locally.

    Man I overpriced by 100 dollars O_O; a gtx 285 would be able to bump up the price of the rig to 1000 minimum. Then again my money sense is not the best :D

    if you did make it included, you could sell it for 1000~1200 locally and it would sell pretty well if you're in a rich town or something
