Hey everyone, I am looking for some advice on selling my PC. I think it is work pretty much nothing, but you never know.

Just to point out, I built it myself, poorly! It has become an increasing pain for the following reasons: If you power supply is turned off the CMOS forgets its settings (i.e. date/time) - I think it may be to do with the battery on the mobo. Secondly, I have to disable the RAID function when I run the PC as I think I bought the wrong hard drive to put in! Lastly, the power supply is messing up and would definitely need replacing!

Now that is out of the way, this is what it is made of:

AMD 64 3000 - Processor
128MB XFX PCI-E 6600GT - Graphics card
1.5 GB RAM
250GB HDD, I think, will check if people need to know!
Gigabyte K8NF-9 - Mother Board
A really nice SilverStone case, with a couple of marks.

Could also shift the monitor that is an LG 19" 1915S

So yeah, if I can get any advice on what it is worth, if anything!

Thanks in advance!

Your probably best off breaking up for spares to be honest, if you do decide to get rid though let me know as I might be interested in it for a small summer project for myself

Well I don't have a replacement as of yet and would like to raise some funds. Although it is doubtful!

I have a macbook pro that I could maybe upgrade with a little cash. Having a desktop is nice though.

UGH! Fed up with computer equipment depreciating so quickly!

What sort of specs are you looking for in your replacement?

I may be interested in the processor/mobo if you split for parts.

*edit: scratch that ive just realised it uses the older ddr memory!

Something that will run programs like Adobe After Effects really smoothly. So probably an emphasis on good graphics and RAM.

How much do you think they are worth? Any idea of a price for the system as a whole. Sorry, just using this thread to gauge what it could be worth.

The PC as it is no monitor, simple faults easily fixed new battery to sort the bios issue out is £1-£2 2 minute job so id sort that, the raid issue is nothing either so sort the bios out and maybe you get £100-£115, the monitor is that the standard format one? rather than widescreen? If so its the same as mine (cant check at mo as its at my other house) bloody good monitor but people want widescreens for some reason maybe £45-£55 on a good day due to it not being widescreen, id offer you £40 simply to replace a crt TV in the bedroom as it only gets used with a pmp hd drive for movies so would save space.

Hmmm, that kind of money isn't worth it really. I am better off scraping money together somewhere else and upgrading it somehow. Thanks for the advice on how to fix the little issues!

It is a great monitor yeah, not widescreen, never had any kind of trouble with it. No loss in quality or anything like that.

Thanks again!
