How much is my pc worth?

Hello, I would also like to know how much my pc is worth please. These are the specs(some i don't quite know as I am only going off my memory.
One of the old Area 51 Alienware PCs
2.66ghz processor
1000GB Hard Drive
A few fans
New Watercooling(recently been added)
New ASUS £50 motherboard(recently been added)
Wireless Internet Card
I don't particulary know the graphics card but it was a Area 51 Alienware PC and I bought it for £1300 about 2.5years back. It also has neon lights around the outside.

If it has a stable overclock set by the factory and a 'good' graphics card (by current standards) then £300.

If it is all running at stock and a now mid range card, then £200.

Both costs assume it comes with an operating system.

both prices also auume its a quad core processor as well. Not sure if they were available on the Area 51 when you bought it.

Do you have more details about the exact model?

its dual core the case is black with green and red neon lights 1 hard disk drive and 1 cd drive and a space for one more.

AMD processor, presumably?

Doesn't bode well for its retail value.

The thing you have on your side is that Alienware have quite a good name for performance gaming PCs. You might get lucky on eBay.

yea alienware is shit, never getting it again. just going to stick to getting my mate to custom build pcs for me, way cheaper & more fun.

If you are going to do that, then take the new watercooling equipment out of the Alienware, get a better-than-average motherboard and overclock your new PC to death!

I'm not getting a new pc for a while, atm i've got a pretty good one(alot better than the alienware) that me nd my mate built. I'm waiting till my exams are finished until I get a new pc because I can then just get an amazing custom built pc for around 1grand and just play games for 10 weeks straight! Getting about 100 350mg of caffine per 79ml drinks. Yes I am insane.
