It's probably not worth as much as you think. Find a site that sells similar configurations to get an idea, then you'll have to deduct because it's now a "used" system & because it was built by "shmaggert" rather than a reputable shop, so there's no warranty. Not only that but it's a high energy user...probably will add 100's of dollars per year to the electric bill. Most people don't consider that, but they should. Plus that type of configuration will only appeal to a small segment of computer users, obviously gamers, who are in the minority. Some kid will probably buy it if you price it low enough & if he can talk mommy & daddy into buying it for him...lol. If you wanna recoup as much money as you can, part it out. The bottomline is it's only worth as much as someone is willing to pay for it.

hi
ebay would give you around the £1200+ mark.
eg:
http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/Intel-E8600-4...

private sale: offers over £750

a shop warranty has value, can you offer one?.

(as per usual just equate £1 to $1 )
