About half of what you paid for it, that is assuming you paid a reasonable price to begin with.

It is one of those inescapable facts of life that computers and most other electronics lose 50% of there purchase value they day after they were bought.

Unless you are in a position to provide the same level of support in case something goes wrong, as a retailer or manufacture selling brand new equipment is, then the price will reflect that.

✔ Best Answer
If you still have the receipts (and therefor warranty) if you sell the parts indivdually you could probably get 75% back. If as Stuart says you paid a reasonable price to begin with.

At very least, thats my experience on e-Bay here in Australia. Second hand PC gear seems to be expensive on e-bay.

Yes, I agree. Selling the parts individually will probably get you a better return providing you still have the receipts.
