Default Selling computer locally, how much could I get?

I'm gonna sell a gaming PC locally and wanted to know how much I should ask. Just the computer itself, no operating system, monitor, speakers, keyboard, or mouse.

Looking for serious answers.

Specs:

Case: Modded Antec 900
Power Supply: Enermax Noisetaker 600W
Motherboard: Asus Commando
CPU: Lapped E6300
RAM: 2x1GB Corsair XMS2 4-4-4-12 2.1V
GPU: EVGA 8800GTS 320MB cooled by HR-03+
HDD: Western Digital 160GB 7200RPM

Pics:










I set a 15 second shutter and the paper fell accidentally while I took it, so that's why it looks like there are two.

That comes out to around $700 though, and that seems really high for an old-ish computer.

I'm not selling here, I was asking for an appraisal.

Take the 700 and divide by 3. Take the answer, 233.33 and double it.
466.66

I just depreciated the value by 1/3. Which is fair if it's under a year old. Over a year and the value is figured by 1/2. 350.00
