    How much do you think I would get for this system?

    Hello everyone.

    I was wondering how much I would get out of this old system if I would try to sell it on ebay or somthing similar.


    It looks like this above

    Intel p4 3.4 ghz
    2 gigs DDR2 533
    6800 gt (256 megs)
    160 gig harddrive SATA
    180 gig harddrive SATA
    Sound blaster 2 audigy
    CD burner
    External DVD burner


    Would it be worth trying to sell or would I get jack for it?

    My dad said he'd buy it off me but that means basically me giving it to him for like 500 bucks, and I wouldn't see that 500 bucks for a good 8 years, and he owes me $15,000 so I kind of not looking forward to giving it to him but rather selling it.

    Any ideas what a good selling price would be?

    Forgive me for laughing, but that is funny. Just the way you say it.

    I'd think not a whole lot. That is a fairly close clone of my old XPS and I'm unloading that for a couple hundred to a buddy of mine with a old skool tube monitor. With the Core2 architecture totally mopping the floor with older technology anything P4 based gets tossed in the scrap heap resale-wise.

    Saddly, that P4 chip is gone the way of the US Dollar... Down down down.

    You're gonna get jAcked no matter which way you go. Maybe run Craigs list, more than Ebay.

    Ebays used and ended auctions are saying its worth $5-800.

    I would say $600.00.

    I play alot of online games and just bought a dual core. That P4 is what is hurting your resale on this machine even if it is Alienware.

    Thanks guys, I might just give it to the family then, when I bought it, I think it was around 2500 >

    I think I'm still going to wait till Starcraft 2 comes out before I make a jump on getting a new system but Call of Duty 4 looks pretty bad ass! (I think it comes out in november)
