Long story short....


Someone talked me into going with a "custom built" computer, and it's too much for my knowledge level of PC. I'd like to sell it, and buy a decent factory computer that will fit my needs. Most of the parts used to build this PC were used, but my friend's wife wasn't a gamer or anything like that, so I don't think anything was "abused". I know the power supply, media dashboard and the USB 3.0 PCI express card are brand new.


I don't expect anyone to give me an exact value, but a ballpark would be appreciated. When I sell it, I don't want to look like I'm trying to rip off the buyer, but I don't want to screw myself, either. Thank you in advance.

Go to pcpartpicker.com. I used it and basically you are able to pick out every single part and it adds the price up for you. Plus it gives you a link to share with other people in case you want to sell it or something.

I think it would be in the $700 range, some of the parts are older or not on the performance end of the spectrum.
