are you asking "How much would somebody pay for this?" or "How much should I pay for this?"

Also, without any specific components the price could vary. If you want to find low prices on these items try www.pricewatch.com You can find rather consistant low prices on most things at www.newegg.com as well.

A friend has one she wants to sell, I might be interested in buying it for my daughter.

P4 2.3 GHz, 512KB, PGA478, 533MHz FSB <-- whatever that all means LOL

You didn't have a monitor listed, so I say this assuming that it isn't included. I would probably pay about $600-$750 for it myself, but that's just me. Is it branded? (Dell, Gateway, Compaq?)

It would be worth a little more if it were branded and offered any kind of warranty. If you can get her to sell it to you for arout $700 then you will have yourself a pretty good deal. Now, that's assuming that it also has an operating system on it. Windows XP preferably. Good luck!

P4 <~~~ CPU

2.3Ghz <~~ Speed

512KB <~~~ Cache

PGA478 <~~~ Hell if I know :confused:

533MHz FSB <~~~ Speed of the Frontside Bus (FSB).

I'd pay $550 tops for that. Two things: The RAM amount is a bit weak for someone like me, and the video card, though well stacked with RAM, there isn't a brand or model listed, which to me, is important.

I'm with Herkalees. Valid points, also the soundcard, no brand mentioned.

Sound, graphics, ram, are important components.

It's a good buy for about $500.00 or $600.00 but no more than that cause ya don't know if it works, since there is no OS on the machine. Plus you can pretty much buy a new one without monitor, same speed or a little better for the same or $100.00 to $200.00 more... and that's NEW with OS. :cool:


Also Video Card mem is only 64 MEGs... low end for the DVD. If she is to play any grafix intense games on it the Vid Card is a bottleneck. :(

Is this system new or has it bin used already? It sounds like someone just put this together and has not used it yet, hence the absence of OS. :confused:

Actually IMHO it is worth more as it is not branded. The reason I say this is that there is no pripitary^sp (brand specific) components so upgrades are easier. But I wouldn't pay more than $600 but I would offer $450 for it. And here is why.

First it is low on RAM, Actually quite low. It would be a much better system with at least 512Meg of ram, as XP uses nearly 200 megs all on it's own so It doesn't leave much room. It also only has a 300W PSU, And most modern system really need at least 350W.

The only real thing I see that it has going for it is that it is a prebuilt system, so you don't have to, and the cd-rw is a high-speed. But beyond that the rest of the components are inexpensive. I priced the components for you in the quote section. These are just ballpark figures. You can find them cheaper I am sure.

<SPeedY-B> !convert usd gbp 500
<TehBot> Conversion From (usd) to (gbp) is (311.3905)

Seems a reasonable price, and the specs given will work fine as an everyday desktop machine, it wont run Doom3 at optimal frame rate, but who cares :)
I'd be perfectly happy sat in front of that machine.
