I suspect not a lot... Given the deals out there on-line and in local stores (where they still exist)...

Any buyer will also be paying for a new HD, and likely to double up the RAM at least...; and presumably an operating system too?

Possibly you would be wise(r) to keep it as a spare PC?

Or else donate it to a charity - and ideally with a working HD installed at least; even nicer of course with a working OS (not XP) installed which they will then take ownership of?

Sorry to say that I doubt you would get anyone to buy it at all. There are newer second hand Windows 7 computers around with far better specs and Vista was never popular.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

It's worth what someone is willing to pay and that varies by where you're at and how you market it. But you might want to take a look here:

When I went there a login box kept popping up. I just closed it and the page loaded OK.

I think you got your specs mixed up. It most likely has 1GB RAM & a 250GB HDD. At least that's what's shown at newegg:

It's an outdated system. It has a Pentium D CPU, only supports up to 2GB DDR2 RAM, & has weak Intel onboard graphics. It could be upgraded & made to run semi-decently but it's really not worth it. If you can get $20-40, take it.

As I suggest above, keep it as a spare unit. Always useful to have something to hand when main system(s) go awry/faulty. That way you can get on-line, maybe come here, or access suitable utilities, drivers etc. to repair/recover your more current systems?

I have an elderly Dell Dimension (1998 model, bought when in USA); and something else that started out as Viglen (a UK brand) and was upgraded twice - stopping at a 386 AT board. That latter was my first PC - a 286; cost £2200.00 in 1988. 40meg HD, 2meg RAM. Both useful spares - of sorts...
