Buy yourself a copy of MicroMart, £2, every Thursday. Look at the deals available and consider if you could source the parts cheaply enough to beat them!

Depends on age/condition whether there is any warranty left. You really need to post the make/model number of each component Rough guess.

CPU E660 = £30 - £35

Mobo = £20 - £25

HDD = £15 - £20

DVD Writer = £7

Power supply and graphics card and RAM will depend on make/model. Windows 7 if it is OEM is tied to the motherboard so can add £50.If it is retail then it will be worth a bit more.

The answer is simple, It is what other people are willing to pay.

Look at magazines (like Micomart)and local papers to find a 'market' price.

As you are not sure what about your business plan, but think there must be a pot of gold at the end for anyone selling computers, have alook at the amount of companies who have gone bust over the last few years.

"Think you are talking to a Spammer using different Nicknames"

That's not the case.

Thanks but it looked like it was, as a lot of similar threads was created at the same time
