mother board: M2N32-SLI DELUX
processor: AMD Athlon 64 X2 4200+,
ram: 2 GB's of PNY Verto Gamer PC2-6400 800MHz DDR2
Hard Drive: Western Digital SE16 320GB

XP Pro alone is worth a lot.

So from 99 to 299 depending on version so I never discount that. But the rest of the machine varies on condition and warranty, support.

Tell more about what the owner will do if they need to find a driver or get a bug fix.

The PC is in 100% perfect condition. All hardware is less than 2 months old so the man. war. will be accepted. As far as drivers and other related things, my buddy told me its a pretty advance machine so it wouldn't really be suitable for someone just trying to check there e-mail. The video card is the 640mb version, not the 320

Try this.

In reply to: reply

Take the retail cost of each item and use the 50% of that for the bottom end. Add the price of XP Pro that applies to your version and you'll find a price that should move the box out.

Why 50%? No warranty or support. They at taking a chance that some part is not 100%

unless you can find a gamer to buy the whole thing

pull the card and ebay/sell it seperately. you could get at least $250 for it.

$500 is a good asking price without the card: mobo, 100; processor, 150; ram, 150; hd, 100. $750 with the card.
