Wanting to sell a PC, price recommendations?

Hi, I have the following PC, built by myself a few months ago for around £500.

Hybrid SLI Motherboard
AMD 64X2 5000+ 2.6ghz x 2
2GB DDR2 Ram
250GB worth of SATA hdd space
DVDRW
HD4870 graphics card (still around £100 in the shops)
Gaming Case with 12cm and 25cm fan, 600w Power Supply
No OS due to licensing reasons, although I would put a linux on to show working.

Just wanting to see some average prices on this sort of spec pc, so that i can list it on here without wanting ridiculous amounts or charging peanuts :)

Hope to hear from you guys soon.

Crikey - £500?

You got ripped off - I'd expect around £200 for it tbh - why you might ask?

I built a comp 18 months ago to better specs with a 23' monitor, amBX kit, wireless kb/mouse and Windows 7 HP for £550 - Excluding the extras your comp in effect doesn't have it probably cost me £330-350 (can't remember exact prices).

I'd reckon my comp has devalued to around £300ish and mine has 4gb ram, 1gb 4870, 1TB hdd and an amd x4 black edition :)

The price difference on those parts is at least £100 so...

Ok,so you are saying I should give £300 and my computer to someone? Not very helpful, I asked a question, and I wanted an honest answer. I didn't want to go into detail about the parts I used etc. Same goes Joey Bloggsy.

My detective skills a tingling... I make what you're selling to have a face value tops of £383.99, not the initial £500 claimed, and anyways my original price of around £200 seems fair enough - I'd also consider offering the split as the gfx card isn't THAT suited to the setup inside the comp...
