    Whats my sons old PC worth ?

    Thinking of posting my sons PC on HDUK. The spec is as follows - what should I ask for it ?

    Custom Red Dragon Tower Case in VGC
    - Top Mounted Red LED 80cm Fan
    - Side Panel Mounted Red LED 80CM Fan
    - Floor Mounted red "Lighning Tube"
    Chieftec 340W PSU
    PC Chips M870 AMD Socket 754 Motherboard (With Box/Manual/Drivers CD)
    AMD Sempron 3000+ Socket 754 CPU + HSF
    512MB Ram
    Asus 9600XT AGP Video (with Manuals/Drivers/External Video Breakoutbox)
    200GB Maxtor HDD
    Black DVD-ROM (Aopen)
    Black Floppy Drive

    Wont be including an Operating System and I know that will make a difference (need to keep XP COA for its replacement).

    £20

    Probs around £40 I would say since the parts are ancient in current pc standards(and considering it has AGP and dvd ROM not a burner etc)

    Nice cabling X)

    I'm glad you didn't say nice case!

    I just upgraded both my kids PCs in the last month. The spec of their old ones was similar, but better than this (ie larger drive and better graphics card, 3400+ CPU and slightly better MB.) They are just sitting in the games room until I can find someone who wants it as a freebie rather than skip them. That said, I might use one of then in place of my server which is running on a celeron.

    £20 - £30 sounds about as much as you might expect I'd say.

    it's hukd not hduk and that case is revolting

    not even worth selling it really unless you/your son needs a small amount of cash
