Help Pricing up a Custom PC Build

5 replies
Found 29th May 2009
I am currently in the middle of a custom PC build for a friend however they have just informed me that a very large (and unexpected) Bill has just come in so he can not really afford the PC. So I have told him I shall see if I can sell it elsewhere however I am unsure how much it is worth.

It has been built as a small, low powered but fairly powerful machine to be used mainly for media purposes but not its not really a HTPC.

Specs are as follows:

AMD Phenom X4 9150e 1.8Ghz (65w) CPU
ASUS M2N68-CM mATX MOBO
ATi HD2400PRO 256Mb GPU
WD 160GB SATA II HDD
2 x 1Gb DDR2 667Hz RAM
DVD RW
Multi Card Reader
ASUS TM210 mATX Case with a 400w PSU
XP PRO with original disk & COA

Any guidance on price will be appricated.

The processor and mobo are reasonable graphics pretty good but the rest is standard if not a little on the light side...I would put it at about £400 max...Hope this helps but I have a feeling people will say less...Good Luck :thumbsup:

Anyone else?

£400 is a idiots price to put up.

First of all the the main problems lie with the fact its AMD, atm AMD isnt a very popular cpu make, and whilst its a quad-core its only 1.8ghz, the gpu and ram are mediocre so anywhere between £170-230 would be a good price

The Phenom IIs are popular so I doubt it's an AMD issue.

The whole system does look out of date though, old graphics card, tiny hard drive, slow ram. Much better is generally availible for just a couple of pounds more so that is going to knock down the price.
