No insult intended but THAT old of technology is rather worthless. I wouldn't give more than $1 + shipping even if I wanted the 10GB drive. The 60GB drive is worth no more than $5 + shipping.

If I had an older system I needed it for, and I was desperate, I might give 10-15 bucks for it, providing shipping was under 5 bucks, but thats pushing it. Those are pretty small drives.

$50.00 sounds fair.

If the bid goes higher it's better for you.

When you sell it all as one you lose value in what you can ask for. If you part it out, you would get more.

That Pentium 4 is over 9 years old (came out in June 2001). Because it's extremely used, outdated and slow it's rather worthless. The motherboard, CD-ROM and PSU are as well. If the RAM is PC133 you may as well toss it. If the RAM is DDR266 you might be able to get a few bucks. I doubt that it is Rambus RDRAM. I once had 2GB (4x512MB RIMMs) of Rambus PC800 and had to throw it away. It has no compatibility in anything other than very old Pentium 4 chipsets.

you might be surprised, some older stuff does sell better. Some people are just plain attached to their computers and just plain want that old memory. On the other hand, some people, buy the parts and extract the gold from them. I would probably start it out at 50 and try that. If it doesn't sell in say the first couple weeks, try dropping it and seeing what happens.

If someone wants the memory why would they spend the extra money on shipping + parts for an entire computer?

Extract the gold from them? There is no gold in a PC. There is copper though.

A 250 watt power supply is unheard of nowadays, unless it is from a really good name. 350-450 watts (or more) is the norm but as wth any PS, the more they weigh is a sign of larger transformers and better quality, 80-90% of the time.

I sold some 40GB hard drives for $20 each on ebay almost a year ago. CD drives are worthless as most drives are DVDs at this point. Even an early DVD will not play some of the more recent DVDs.

I would donate everything to the Salvation Army and take a tax credit for it. You can get it a decent value at that point because there is no one to really dispute it.
