Post Price Check?

So, I'm going to college here soon, and I've decided to give up PC gaming, so I'm looking to sell my custom built computer, and I have no idea what it's worth. Sure I could add up everything and try and break even with how much I spent on it, but everyone knows it never works like that. Anyway, specs are as followed:

OS: Windows 7 Home Premium
CPU: Intel i3-2100 CPU @ 3.10 GHz
RAM: 8 GB (G. Skill 2x4GB)
HDD: 1 TB (Seagate)
Video Card: EVGA GeForce GTX 550 Ti
Motherboard: ASUS P8Z77-V LK LGA 1155 Intel Z77
Monitor: ASUS Black 23" Full HD HDMI LED Backlight LCD Monitor w/Speakers

If there's anything not listed that you'd like to know feel free to ask and I'll answer to the best of my ability

i3-2100 is a strong i3. Too bad people these days see way too much into whether it's i3, i5, or i7, and not the model or technology behind it... It really is a good CPU, and this looks like a good build. Good luck!

Personally I think 500 - 600 is rather a lot and a bit ambitious.

You can get a brand new 3rd gen i5 with 2Tb HDD and 8Gb RAM for 340. . . .Zoostorm Desktop PC - Desktops | Ebuyer.com

Granted you will have to buy a monitor, graphics card and OS but still.
Then add on the 2nd hand price decrease and I wouldn't like to pay more than 300 for that machine?

That's around $460.

My advice would be to have a quick browse around at equivalent spec'd new machines in the states and then minus a "premium" for it being second hand.

yes but that machine has basic psu, mobo and ram compared to his branded parts.

you wouldnt get that mobo secondhand for less than 80
i3 2100 60
ram 45
EVGA GeForce GTX 550 Ti 60
seagate 1tb 20
ASUS Black 23" Full HD HDMI 100

yeah actually 300 sounds about right

It's used. It lost 1/3 of it's value first time you turned it on. And why pay you what you gave for the parts when I can buy brand new, under warranty, for the same amount?
But don't let that discourage you. Put a small ad in your local Sunday paper.
