Selling price of old computer

Dell Dimension 8200
April 24, 2007 at 15:04:15
Specs: XP Pro, P4 2.8GHz/1GB RAM

I'm trying to get sell one of my computers and I would like to come up with a fair price. Does anyone know of an "Edmund's" or "Kelley's Blue Book" type website for COMPUTERS? Something where you could enter the specs and have it ballpark a price.

I've tried finding a similar computer selling on ebay, but was unsuccessful.

Anyone have any ideas?

old computers are like selling a horse.
they will only bring what someone will pay.
with the onset of 'cheap' new computers with all the latest technology, old stuff is even hard to give away.
i usually tape a 20.00 bill to my old stuff, just to get someone to carry it off, so i don't have to dump it.
good luck!

Yep, I hate to say it but mountain is right. They're really only worth what someone will pay.

If you want me to tell you what I'd pay for it, post the spec's.

You may even find you'll make more money by stripping it down and selling the components individualy on ebay. It's like trying to sell an old used car. The sum of the parts is greater than the value of the whole.

I used to have a signature but it disappeared and I just couldn't be bothered writing another so please feel free to ingore this.
