    Have tried looking for new computers with similar specs? Also check out ebay for similar computers. Also check out completed listings on ebay by checking the box on the left side of the screen for completed auctions. That will give you an idea of what it is worth.

    All in all it is worth what someone would pay for it. How do you plan on selling the pc?

    I plan on selling it to a friend or family member in the area. I'm am fairly certain one of them will buy it, no problem. I just want to make sure neither of us is getting ripped off.

    So instead, find a friend who is computer illiterate and sell it to them overpriced :)

    Deadman45,
    It might be worth 200-300 usd as the 939 platform is going bye bye. It's an older system but still very capable to say the least. Iwould ask 500 and haggle because all the extras you have. Of course this is sight unseen on the pricing! good luck!

    Thanks guys. I've got a buyer. I'm going for 500, but he will most likely settle for 400.
