This is a custom-built PC that I put together less than two years ago. I'm switching to Apple, so I am no longer in need of a Windows box. The case is in perfect condition and computer runs fine. This computer is perfect for gaming, video / audio production, or anything that needs horsepower. The specs are:

AMD Athlon64 3200+ CPU
1 gigabyte RAM (2x512)
80 gigabyte IDE harddrive
ATI Radeon 9600 AGP video card with 256mb onboard memory
SoundBlaster Live! sound card
52/24/4x DVD-RW +/- drive
16x CD-RW drive
12x DVD-ROM
Floppy drive

This computer features an Asus K8V-Deluxe motherboard with 5 PCI, 1 AGP, onboard NIC, 6 USB (2 on the front), 1 firewire, parallel port, SATA & IDE support and more. More information about the board can be found here: http://www.hardocp.com/article.html?art=NTM2

Case is pictured below. It is a Mercury Aqua, rounded teil case. This case is tool-less and requires nothing to make modifications. This case has a 400W power supply along with 1 casefan.

Harddrive is older than the PC and from keeping it on all the time, it doesn't spin-up when booting 5% of the time. Drive should be replaced at some point but once it's on it works fine. I have never had this drive fail me. The DVD-ROM drive needs to be cleaned, as it has trouble reading disks. Computer does not include keyboard, mouse or monitor.

Computer will come either formatted or with a fresh copy of Windows XP on it, whichever you choose. You must supply your own license key for the OS.

Included software:

Burned copy of Windows XP Professional.
Compilation CD of:
Adobe Photoshop CS2
Macromedia MX Suite
Microsoft Office 2000
McAfee Antivirus

Thanks!

Ok that system is worth maybe $300 since it doesnt work properly... but on top of that you are selling copies of illegal software.

Why is this thread even still here???? :confused:

EDIT: Ok, upon reading this again... I really hope its a joke :eek2:

Alright, well I must be WAY out of the loop. My experience is that the hardware on this system is not that outdated and current specs are close to this. Perhaps I'm wrong?

You guys are the hardcore gamers. What price should I be looking for on this system? I'm not trying to rip anyone off but I'm also not looking to shed it at a bargain basement price.

Thanks!

A good place to start would be seeing how much this stuff would cost new.

Athlon 64 3200+ Newcastle 122US
Amigo Radeon 9600 256MB AGP 8x 64US
Seagate 7200.9 80GB/8MB SATA 1.5 51US
G.SKill 2x512MB PC3200 67US
Sound Blaster Audigy SE 7.1 29US
Asus K8N-E (Nforce 3 250GB) 66US
NEC ND4570A 39US
LG GSA-H10A 39US
Sony Floppy Drive 10US

Now you got to consider depreciation over ~490US, and the fact that this is fairly generous as this is for all the parts new... as well some parts are better, here then what you have.

Unless the software is legitimate or something, the price is way way out there.

Just for comparison this is what you can get with 1100US with wise spending.

eVGA 133-K8-NF41 Nforce 4 SLI S939 79US
Athlon 64x2 3800+ Manchester 297US
G.SKIll Value PC3200 2x1GB 138US
Seagate 7200.9 250GB/8MB/SATA 3.0Gb 90US
Sound Blaster Live! Audigy SE 7.1 29US
XFX PV-T71G-UCE7 Geforce 7900GT 256MB 330US
Case with 400W Power Supply 40US
NEC ND4570A + LG GSA-H10A 78US
Mitsumi FA404M 7in1 Floppy/Flash Reader 20US

1101US Newegg as reference

hi, since the pc has some problems that you will most likly have to stand behind. all of do so its no surprise. your system shipped would be about 250.00 shipped and thats on the high side. i know your looking for more, but as of late prices have dropped on last years hardware.

used price for wut i seen as of late
amd 3200 retail 90.00
9600 pro 50.00, 9800 pros 70.00
ram 50-60
never stated mobo? 40.00
other items listed would be just kick in's for the deal.
if you parted most of the other items you would be stuck with anyways.
good luck hope this helps my 2cents

Wasn't trying to rag you, but a legit copy of xp home alone is 80-120 dollars, and an illegal copy is worthless, and the people here are just being honest and not mean, what you are asking for is far too much, try $250-300 and maybe you will get a few bites. The really only thing of worth is the processor, ram ...well you didn't specify speed, with an agp mobo i would assume it is not pc3200, if you have any problem with a piece of hardware like you described about your hard drive it is more or less considered worthless....maybe you should consider keeping it as a secondary system, personally that is what I would do.

Well the video card was mid range 3 years ago, so yes its very outdated.

The CPU is fine, and the mobo and ram are probably alright as well.

A flakey hard drive is worth nothing.

Slow DVD and CDRW drives mean they are old and arent really worth anything... especially if they are already having problems. If its a 12x DVD drive, its probably more than 5 or 6 years old, and more than likely its worn out (not dirty).

The sound blaster live! is from 1997. They probably still work alright some times, but its pretty much bottom of the barrel as sound cards go.

And the DVD RW drive specs are a bit misleading... it sounds more like a combo drive (CDRW\DVD Reader).

Not trying to rip on you (much), but youre selling a crapload of illegal software on a public forum. Not the smartest thing in the world to do ;)

This thread was a good laugh after a long crappy day of paper writing.
