How much do you think I'll make by selling my current computer? (Check sig.)

I wouldn't sell it! Unless you need the money. I would just get a new mobo, RAM and CPU. You have nice stuff to keep you going for a long time, especially the Lite On. :D I love mine. The beschest baby!

What Udawg said. Keep it. You'll never get out of it what its worth to you. You might be able to sell it and by a new Motherboard and CPU, maybe some RAM to go with it, but that's hardly a system.

Keep it around. If nothing else its a good backup to have.

When you do this again, you'd have enough components for an extra computer. Then you'll have two, one faster and one not too bad. Maybe that's why I have 6 computers now.

If you wanted to sell it together I'd say you'd get maybe $350-400 for it, it's kinda getting dated.

$300 tops unless you sell it to someone who doesn't know what they are getting. It isn't that you have a bad set up it's just that it is thee generations behind on the mobo. One generation behind Nvidia's mobo's. Puters just drop big time in value. :(

i dunno... i'm think i'm realistic... i could get more than 300... nforce is still very good... just slightly behind Nforce2 (which, btw tom's hardware considers to hold the crown for AMD chipsets! WOO!)

Its worth about 2 dollars and 50 cents. Murphy's law of computers: it costs 2000 bucks the day you buy it, the next days its obsolete and worth nothing.

Ill give you 3 dollars for it. :)

Keep it. That way you'll have spare parts if you want to put together another computer someday. I was going to sell my TNT 1 back in 2000, but kept it, now I'm using it in a second computer for the house.

see, the thing is that i think that before i go to college, i'm selling my computer except the speakers and video card, buying an nForce2 (or 3, i suppose) board and an athlon64 processor... etc. and either a g4 desktop or a g4 powerbook. I don't want to have all these spare bits of computer all around the place. In fact, i just donated a mobo and 2 cases to my journalism department.

i would keep it and turn it into a tivo like recorder (http://www.mythtv.org)

nothin' impresses the chicks than a geek saying " hey baby do you want to check out my pvr"
