I'm thinking of selling my desktop but have no idea of what it's worth-any help most appreciated!

AMD athlon 64 3000 processor
Athlon 64 fan
512mb ddr memory
80gb hard drive
Sony DVD/CDRW combo drive
Floppy drive
10/100 network riser
on board 6 channel audio
Foxconn K8S Ath 64 M/board integrated graphics
128mb unified nVIDIA Geforce 4 graphics
6 USB ports (4 back, 2 front)
Carrera G case in black.

Computer is 2 and half years old but in mint condition.

Any help appreciated!!

I'm afraid you're in for a shock. Without a monitor. A similar spec PC to yours, new, would cost somewhere round the £200-250 mark these days and it would come with Vista and probably another 512mb RAM.
Therefore I would say that you might get £100 for it.
Sorry but prices have dropped dramatically in the past couple of years, look at the prices at online retailers yourself.
You might be better either just keeping it and using it yourself or perhaps seeing if theres a worthy friend or relative that could use it.

£110 max but more likely £90.

Yep got to agree with the above,around the £100 mark.I know its sad really,but thats life im afraid.

To give you another idea of prices now,here a Dell with 17in monitor and dvd rw,160GB sata hdd,free delivery,years warranty for just under £300 click here
