Some of the details depend (condition, what case it has, chipset, specific cooler, etc.) but I would say around $500 tops. It is used, therefore should be around half of the initial price, then you have to factor in the fact that technology is pretty much always outdated and only getting older. No one is ever going to want a "vintage" computer, unless it's one of the first computers for a museum...
