Hi,

I have a PC that I do not use. A friend wants to buy it for her multimedia studio, so she will give me a fair price for it. Here are the stats:

- Pentium 4 Processor 3.06GHz 533MHz FSB w/512KB Cache w/HT
- 1GB RDRAM PC-1066
- Promise Ultra100TX2 IDE Controller
- 120GB Western Digital UltraATA 7200RPM 8MB Cache
- Pioneer DVD-RW A05
- Lite On 48x12x48x CD-RW
- Hercules 3D Prophet 9700 Pro 128MB AGP Dual Monitor
- Sound Blaster Audigy 2
- Iomega Internal 250MB Zip Drive
- Microsoft Windows XP Professional

What should I sell this for?

I also have a Sony FD Trinitron 21” CRT, G520P, what could I get for that?

Thanks!

$1245 is replacement cost. Reduce that depending on age of components.

Sell at maybe $1000 depending on how much you like her. I wouldn't pay that much since it is only a 533 FSB. That'll hurt for multimedia system performance.

;) PS Don't show her this post..

Ken! Welcome back to the forums :D
SPeedY_B!! Its so great to be back!! Did ur blog/site go down? my blog has gone up in popularity actually. a lot more then i expected.

anyways for those who do not know, the main reason i started my blog was because i bought a pc for my small business because i thought i would write about my experiences. well im selling, thats the culmination of my experience.

thanks all for the advice on pricing. this will help me buy a dual 2.5 ghz g5 and new cinema display. i have enough in the bank for the g5, and selling this PC will allow me to get a nice cinema display, i think the 23".

well i guess i should clarify. this will be used for flash and director work, for that, i think this machine does great at, as i have used it for this a bit.

I may actually be insane.

It's still alive, just moved, the complexero hosting got all screwy so I slapped it on speedyb.co.uk :D

Grabbed me a (old style, plastic) 20" cinema display not so long ago, definitely worth it :D You get to buy one of the pretty new aluminium ones too!
