A friend wants to buy my system, just the tower.


How much does everyone think it is worth.

AMD 64 4000+ @ 3.0Ghz
Arctic Cooler 64 Pro
1Gb OCZ Platinum PC3200 2.2.2.5
MSI Neo 4 Platinum
2) Maxtor 300Gb SATA HDD's
Lite-On DL DVD-CDR burner 16-48X
X1800XT flashed to XTPE @ 720-840
Antec 1050B case with 550W PSU


The whole system runs quiet. I have removed all my heatsinks and lapped them, on the CPU, GPU, Nfarce chipset, and Vregs on the graphics card.


What do you think is fair if I redo his setup and move all his files and have a complete working system?

That is still one heck of a system. What are you or have you replaced it with?

I priced everything out at Newegg.

AMD 64 4000+ - $70.00
Arctic Cooler 64 Pro - $30.00
1Gb OCZ Platinum PC3200 - $100.00 ($200.00 for 2GB)
MSI Neo 4 Platinum - Not listed
2) Maxtor 300Gb SATA HDD's - $110.00/each (if I have the right model)
Lite-On DL DVD-CDR burner 16-48X - Not listed
X1800XT - Difficult to price, $200.00?
Antec 1050B case with 550W PSU - Not listed

Taking into account that the system is used and somethings are no longer available. I'd say between $500.00 and $600.00 would be fair for the hardware. Maybe $450.00?

As for labor. He is your friend. I have a a difficult time charging close friends for this type of thing (hell, I gave my best friend a computer for free). I think a 30 pack and dinner is fair. Or $50.00. *shrug*

No new system, yet. Instead my wife got a new set of Bosch washer and dryers, a new house, paid for her car, two student loans.



I was thinking no upgrade this year, but........


A core 2 duo and was thinking about a new R600 card, but with all the DRM integrated bull****, no thanks.


Thanks for the idea.

Bosch, huh? Very nice. That's quite a sacrifice you've made! ;)

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.

EP, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
