e6300 - £30-35
4gb memory - specs on it? - probably about £40 min
gfx - £15-20 ish
tv card - depends on model, minimum £5
dvd drives - £5-10 each probably
OS - £20-30 for xp/vista (can only sell if you have OEM license stuck on it or along with it)

you havent said what hdd either =] but this should give you a rough idea
I sold almost the exact same system as that a couple of years ago, for £200. That there, I'd guess around £130 or so would be fair.

It might be worth considering just doing an upgrade, though. The PC platform has been pretty solid over the past few years, so even parts as old as that still have a good deal of life left in them. Like, your motherboard - that'll be a PCIe 16x board supporting DDR2 RAM and skt 775 processors, out of which PCIe 16x is still today's leading standard. DDR2 isn't really any slower than DDR3 in terms of its effect on framerate, and although the i7 processors are very powerful, the Core2Duo and Core2Quad lines, nearly all of which will probably be compatible with your board, are still easily powerful enough to run pretty much any game out there at high framerates.

Personally, I run a 2.8GHz PentiumDualCore (which is basically just a Core2Duo E8200, but with less cache) and a GTX260, which only cost something like £160 combined. Nothing, not even Crysis, troubles them. I do think I'll upgrade to an i7 Quad Core though, just for my music production stuff, which is fully multi-threaded and sucks down CPU power, but not for a long time yet.
Ah, dam, was hoping it would be worth more. Want to either build a new desktop or buy a laptop. Not sure yet though. Cheers guys and rep added
