    Here i will give you 5 cents for it.
    Or you could just GIVE it to me maybe...
    Nah me thinks that a reasonable price would have to be an even $500.00 That sounds a bit more better, well that's how much they are selling these type's of setup's at a Computer Shop near me..
    But they come with a little more then what you listed..

    Anyhow cheers

    I'm not good on the dollar/pound conversion, so I will have to try pounds for a start.

    If I am clear, you say you made this computer - does that mean you built it yourself? So no manufacturers warranty on the build. That knocks a big hole in the price.

    The spec would count in the UK as middling - similar to what you might pick up for GBP500, with some other freebies ( especially software ). It would probably not be put together as well as yours, but it would come with the manufaturers warranty etc.

    So I think you may be looking at GBP300 for it. Not because there is anything wrong with it, but because it seems like a non-standard build.

    You are not far off the mark. I sold one last year about this time, with similar spec for 450.

    kickmybutt30, ensure that you give the buyer all the manuals and drivers, for everything you installed, especially as there is no O/S. You dont't want them coming back saying they dont have drivers, can't get this or that working etc
