Default How much is this computer worth?

It's custom built and here are the specs:

Intel Core 2 Duo. 2.66 Ghz
2GB ram corsair ram.
P5KC Asus Motherboard
500 Watt Antec Basiq PSU
DVD Cd burner x18 speed
512 MB Nvidia e-Geforce 8600 GT.
300 GB Hard drive
Windows XP 2000 Pro L
Big case with 3 fans.

Sorry if the parts are not too specific. I just got a laptop and am probably not going to use this much more so I want to sell it to a close friend. What do you guys think is a reasonable price for this?

WOOT!!!ANTEC BASIQ FTW!!!!

Humm...Those are eerily similar specs to my computer. However I don't know if the C2D is better than my Brisbane. I would say 300-400 to non computer savvy 200-300 to PC savvy.

yeah, its best to just upgrade the CPU, maybe add another GB of ram if you plan on using Vista, and a better graphics card, and your computer will be like brand new.
but if you dont want it, then i would say sell it for about $300, but if it was me i would probably try to push it to about $400-$500 for a new build.
I was about to sell my computer (not the one in my sig) for $800 to like 3 people that were interested, and your specs were better than mine, only difference was that my graphics card was better.
