Ok, I'll bit.

Sense you did such a wonderful job on the item details, are you also looking for a labor cost?
I mean, I'll build that one for ya, and skip the Ebay thing all together, but I ain't doing it for free...and I assume you ain't either.

So, hardware listed and nothing flashy or fancy, just solid....humm...
As most buyers won't have a flippin clue about all the wordiness there, they'll most likely be shy of the final tag anyway...so, we'll say a fair 400.00 to 600.00 USD And that's just parts in a box and a happy note to the buyer, Some Assembly Required. No, seriously, what else will the unit come with. Most Ebay buyers want a plug and play system, so you'll need to be a little more creative.

I think the parts he listed cost him more than 400-600$ unless he found really good deals. I think the processor alone costs $300+, ram $120+, mobo, $100-150+, DVD-$25-30, gpu- over $250, 1tb hdd-$115-ish, fan-$30-50, psu-around $100. He probably sent around $1,000 to make it, even more. If you installed windows vista home premium, I bet you could sell it for $1,400-$1,500. That is a very good gaming gaming computer, and Dell or someone would probably charge at least $2,000 for something similar.
