    Hi I'm going to be selling my system to a person who is heading off to college and I'm not sure how much to charge them.

    System Specs are:

    [OS] Windows XP Professional Sp1
    [HD] 20 gig Maxtor 7200 rpm HD
    [GFX} Ati Radeon 7500 or 7000 unsure of gfx card
    [MOBO] Soyo Ultra Platinum DDR Kt-333
    [CPU] AMD XP 1700+
    [CD BURNER] TDK 24x cd burner
    [DVD ROM[ HP DVD ROM
    [CASE} Antec Soho File Server
    [PSU] 430+ Truepower came with case
    [HSF] Volcano 9

    I'm not including a mouse, keyboard, speakers, or monitor as I believe they should choose them.

    I'm giving them full support, anything goes wrong I'll fix it no charge.

    $300 maybe? ... Dell sells complete systems with Pentium 4s and a GeForce 4 MX for $500. I wouldn't expect to get much.

    yah but dell has a lesser psu and their rigs are not as expandable...

    call it between 300-400 and ask for best offer... stick a price out that you think is fair judging from online prices and factoring depreciation..

    If they ask you to itemize it:

    130 [OS] Windows XP Professional Sp1
    20 [HD] 20 gig Maxtor 7200 rpm HD
    60 [GFX} Ati Radeon 7500 or 7000 unsure of gfx card
    100 [MOBO] Soyo Ultra Platinum DDR Kt-333
    60 [CPU] AMD XP 1700+
    25 [CD BURNER] TDK 24x cd burner
    25 [DVD ROM[ HP DVD ROM
    30 [CASE} Antec Soho File Server
    100 [PSU] 430+ Truepower came with case
    20 [HSF] Volcano 9
    50 Ram ???
    620 Total

    You're cutting them a $220 break.

    PS Anyone stupid enough to buy a Dell should buy a jar of vaseline with it. YOU WILL NEED IT! All my friends and relatives have had nothing but trouble with compatibility, upgrades, failures, etc. Buy a Packard Bell before you buy Dell.

    Don't start the Dell bashing, there have already been threads like that. I had a Dell for 3 years... not a single problem. And I could upgrade anything... lets see, what did I upgrade? I added another stick of RAM, new video card, new soundcard, new CD burner, new harddrive, and went from 98 to Windows XP. Doesn't seem to have trouble upgrading to me.
