    Looking at selling a system. What would you price it up at?

    As the topic suggests really. I've pretty much grown out of gaming, any I do is in little sporadic spates every now and then and as a result I've got a fairly powerful and stupidly large PC for using an internet browser and emailing with. Will probably look to getting a netbook as well as a slightly beefier laptop as replacements.

    So, the system is:

    Intel Core2Duo e6600 cooled with a Scythe Mugen cooler
    Asus P5K-e WiFi/AP motherboard
    4GB OCZ Platinum DDR2-800 RAM
    BFG 8800GT OC Graphics card
    Samsung Spinpoint F1 1TB OS HDD
    4 x 400 Hitachi SATA HDD in RAID5
    Creative X-Fi XtremeMusic (PCI)
    Silverstone modular 700w PSU
    Twin DVDRW Drives
    AverMedia Digital Hybrid TV Card
    Windows 7 x64 RC (with Windows Vista Home Premium OEM DVD & COA included as original OS)
    All enclosed in a (frankly enormous) Coolermaster Stacker case which is fairly well scratched in places.

    Will probably keep the 1TB as file storage for myself and un-raid one of the 400GB units as an OS drive though.

    I don't know, it's got an OS and reasonable components... I'd stretch to £450 for it, but probably no more.

    Keep it! You may as well... if you sell it for the prices these guys have been talking about and buy a laptop you're likely to just break even on it, certainly not going to get much cash back. You don't want a netbook as your main computer.

    Split it and put it on ebay, I put one up similar spec a while ago and got offers of 200quid on it, split it and put it back on ebay and got around the £450 mark for it all together.

    Aye, splitting it is looking like a good option. Ideally, as mentioned I'd like both a netbook and a laptop but that's hardly going to leave any room for picking and choosing options. Might sell off enough of it to go towards a netbook, ditch the RAID and decent graphics as well as the oversized case. All good fun.

    I went cold turkey on games nearly a year ago but I am feeling the pull back to them. I would really like to play L4D and just seen Natural Selection 2 oooo. Need a new pc though as mine is a bit long in the tooth now.
