Looking on Loot then a figure between £150-200 might be achievable. The high figure because of the W7.

However I think you would get similar even if you removed the two 160GB HDD's.

Have you considered eBay? You never know how much you could get on there as sometimes older components go for silly money - both on the high & low side btw.

Anyway, this is my assessment if sold individually, as could be worth more selling them this way.

Mobo--: £50
CPU---: £15
RAM---: £30
Gfx---: £35
Audio-: £25
Hd500-: £30
Hd160-: £15
Hd160-: £15
Case--: £30
DVD-rw: £10
OS----: £85 (If retail, & may get even more. But if OEM, it would have to sold with mobo as licence is tied to it & would be a lot lower)

Total: £340 (this is not counting fees & delivery costs)

I'm sure some will disagree, but again it's my assessment going on what these sell for on eBay on a good day. Putting a Buy-it-now price for some could be a way to getting a guaranteed sum. G

Oops! I tried to make all the numbers line up, but didn't manage it! G
