Well if you check what you can get now With regards a System without monitor, NEW. and that's what people look at click here

With warranty. And Windows XP

Looks like a complete system (is it?), but you may get more if you sell each component separately. But this can be a hassle, as you can imagine - each will most probably need to be sent to a different buyer.

Do a search for each individual component (or similar system) on eBay & see what they sell for in the next few days - that'll give you some idea of what you can expect to get. Auctions starting at £0.99 usually sell for more (they say), unless you're extremely unlucky. Make sure to end the auction on a reasonable day & time (not coinciding with the World Cup final or at 3am, for example). Good luck, G

As an example of a retailer selling a second hand PC with Windows XP and 15" monitor £129.99 click here and you have to bear in mind thats a retailers price who give a 30 day guarantee. I would suggest that as a private seller, assumming it has XP on it you might get £60-70 but I think woodchips figure might be more realistic.
Sorry but when the likes of Dell are selling a complete new system with a 15" TFT for as little as £299 you won't get much more.

A CPU is the processor - you are talking about selling your system.

As woodchip points out it's not really worth a great deal.

It's unfortunate but a fact of life these days as you can buy brand new and superior systems for comparatively little and complete with guarantees.

It might be worth selling the components separately.

Even a 1GB PentiumIII Socket 370 processor brings £20 or so on e-Bay and you could check out the potential returns for the other components such as the hard drive and motherboard quite easily.

However, a 40GB HDD can be bought new for around £25 now....:-)

The World Cup final is tomorrow (Sunday)...:-)

Posted before realising you had suggested selling components separately.

Stuartli, "The World Cup final is tomorrow (Sunday)...:-)"

I know, it was only an example as mentioned ;0) G
