    Selling my gaming PC

    Hi There, I'm thinking of selling my gaming PC, it's in good nick, been well looked after and has ran a treat since the day I built it. But, I am stuck on what sort of price I should be looking at for the specs below:

    Motherboard

    x1 Asus M4A785TD-V EVO 785G Socket AM3 onboard DVI VGA HDMI 8 channel audio ATX Motherboard

    Processor
    x1 AMD Phenom II X6 1055T 2.8GHz 6MB L3 Cache Socket AM3

    Graphics Card
    x1 Asus GTX470 1280MB GDDR5 Dual DVI Mini HDMI Out PCI-E Graphics Card

    Hard Drive
    x1 Samsung HD103SJ Spinpoint F3 1TB Hard Drive SATAII 7200rpm 32MB Cache

    RAM/Memory

    x2 Crucial 4GB ([8GB total]) DDR3 1333MHz/PC3-10600 Ballistix Memory Kit CL7 (7-7-7-24) 1.65V

    Optical Drive
    x1 Samsung SH-B123L 12x BD-ROM with DVD±RW DL & RAM SATA Blu-Ray Drive - Black

    Power Supply Unit
    x1 OCZ GameXStream 850W PSU - Silent 120mm Blue LED Fan 4x PCI-E 6x SATA

    Case/Fans/Cooling
    x1 Casecom 6788 All Black Case
    x1 Arctic Cooling Freezer 7 Pro rev 2 Socket 775, 1156, 1155, 1366, AM2, AM3 Heatpipe CPU Cooler (fitted inside case)
    x3 120mm Blue LED Fan - 4pin Molex Connection (fitted inside case)

    Operating System
    <NONE>

    Speakers

    <NONE>

    Keyboard/Mouse
    <NONE>

    Monitor
    <NONE>

    What would you pay for this second hand? Also, I'm open to any offers :P

    EDIT - Here is a pic, mine looks exactly the same, but with a Blu-Ray drive fitted in the top panel at the front:

    As a complete unit, getting more than £250-£300 will be tricky unless you can pitch it just right, to the right audience. PCs are vastly easier to sell as component parts - your motherboard is decent, the processor is very desireable, graphics card is decent, RAM's not worth much but will sell, and your PSU and optical drive are very saleable.

    I'd agree with the breaking it and selling the parts, that's what I did with my old one

    I'd (note, would, not am, too poor for that) offer about £200 for it, mostly because it's second-hand. I'm not saying you've damaged anything, but being a gaming PC it'll definitely have been through some. Admittedly, £200 is on the lower-end of what I'd consider 'fair', but since I build my own (as I'm sure many here do) I'd usually just buy parts bit-by-bit and assemble after a few months once I'd gotten all of the parts.

    I think @3s-gtech raises a valid point. You'd probably shift it easier as component parts.
