what is it worth?

4 posts in this topic

hello all,

I am looking to replace my computer as it unfortunately doesn't what I need any more.

I work from home and use it to run a lot of vmware guests so can lab up systems and also use it for general pc usage.

I am wondering what i would get for the old system, though not sure if i am allowed to ask so apologies if i am breaking a rule.

So, these are the components & case i am looking to sell as a single lump and thoughts on what i should/could ask for are appreciated.

CPU: Intel Core 2 Quad Q6600 @ 2.40GHz - Kentsfield 65nm Technology

RAM: 8GB Dual-Channel DDR2 @ 400MHz (6-6-6-18)

Motherboard: ASUSTeK Computer INC. P5E-VM HDMI (LGA775)

Graphics: 512MB NVIDIA GeForce 9600 GT (ASUStek Computer Inc)

Optical Drives: PIONEER DVD-RW DVR-218L ATA Device

Audio: Realtek High Definition Audio

Case: Antec P182

PSU: 550w Asus i think, not sure how to tell without taking out!

Thank you.

You could check the prices at eCreek, knowing that:

- "Buy it now", often by professionals, tend to be expensive and take months to sell;

- Auctions, often by non-pro, are cheaper, so just follow a few ones to the end to make an idea;

- Separate parts earn you much more money than the complete computer;

- But making all sales simultaneously is better: buyers can save on grouped shipping and check all your sales.

My opinion on this.

Anything below a 3Ghz must be backed up by a more powerful Graphics card.

AGP 8X should be the standard, but thier are different uses. If not PCI16X should be the standard. Meaning a low PCI16X should stand as a high AGP.

ASUS board depends on the compatibility. They are all over the place.

om must be ready. Is it region free? I believe it was June 200X, when all DVD drives got region blocked......

PSu must be a power user ready, you need to check varibles.

What makes this thing valuable is amount of RAM you have, with it. Meaning that is a good thing, for the RAM shake.

What about?

Is the case a tower, and is it cosmetic, or a boring space case, from the early 1990's?

About the NIC card? is their an NIC card?

Sound card???

My opinion on this.

Yes, do give us an opinion on a Topic created on 01 November 2013 - 10:27 AM

and having one single response on 30 December 2013 - 04:44 PM

The Original poster didn't want an OPINION on the HARDWARE, they wanted to know what HARDWARE they specified was WORTH (as a unit). The second post gave a suggestion. You gave nothing on a four month old topic and I'll bet that the OP already either kept it or sold it by now.

BTW - http://www.msfn.org/board/index.php?app=forums&module=extras&section=boardrules

10. We do not encourage the raising of post counts or creating threads that state you have reached a post count milestone, unlike other forums that do. Remember, there are no prizes in store for those with a very high number of posts!

Have you ever read the Rules?

Or maybe you felt this Topic needed a bump every two months? :unsure:
