NO, I'm NOT sellin my tower unless I HAVE to (prays it'll never happen), but I thought I'd ask TPU to appraise my PC just out of curiosity. :cool:

Wow, it'd be hard enuff to sell it, let alone scrap it... Thx guys. Who knows? Maybe sometime this year I'll be able to afford a PC that is capable of dancing around my current build. I originally bought it off eBay for $315 total last summer and have since rebuilt it after losing my 400GB RAID set in October. Wow, looking back, October was the worst month in my life, and almost losing my PC to a breaker popping 1-10 times a day didn't help it much, lol. I was looking into further upgrading it when I get an income again, but if it's only worth that much, it's kinda pointless.

yep, mine was worth only 50% just after a few months. I bought it in not a very good time...

That blows... I WAS going to get a Core 2 Duo @ 1.86GHz system from the same seller, but this tower came with XP MCE OEM, and an All-In-Wonder 2006, so it more appeal. Looking back, I want the Core 2 system, even though it's 'slower' at stock than this one is. I COULD overclock, but having just fixed overheating issues with a new heatsink I don't think I want to push my luck.

i was going to say around $500 au, for the whole thing - it depends on the buyer and the looks of the case. Some people will pay more if they arent techies.

exceeded: he refers to the MHz value. notice the ' ' around it.
