yeah CGM3 is aboutright on the price. PC's drop in value faster than a car.
Well whatever you do sell it for just be sure to take any ofyour personal info off it.

If you are going to sell a computer I would suggest maybe just removing the hardrive completely and taking care of it (a sledge hammer useally does the trick)...

If you have the disk for the OS, and can reinstall it, I would suggest using something like Drive Wipe, or Disk Kill to overwright the hdd, and then reinstall the OS. Either of these will make it very dificult for anyone to retrieve any information that was previously there. There are pros out there that can do some amazing things, but it's expensive. If this is your personal machine, and there isn't anything earth shattering on the hdd, I would do what I have suggested and not worry about it.

Quite frankly, I would'nt give you $20. for it if I was going to have to purchase an operating system too.

Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.

If you can live without the money make it a backup computer on your LAN, for when your primary PC is down. I am with dc3. That computer with the disks is worth $150 to $175. With out the disks $100. You can buy a similar level machine for $300 at Walmart. I am not trying to be disrespectful just honest. You may find some kid with just enough money ($150) for that computer but that is about it. Make it an MP3 server for your stereo. Or a dedicated Chat box so you don't clutter your primary box.
