    I am horrible with this kind of thing. Have you looked around at other for sale and trade forums and see what others are selling that generation at? I'd hate to say it, but I am really not sure it's worth anything more than $400... that's just based on the fact that I am pretty sure you can build something quite a bit better for $600 or so nowadays. Again though, I am horrible at this kind of thing. Optix seems like someone who would be better at this so I'll shoot him a note.

    I'm not much better at this sort of thing than Rob is unfortunately. If it was a current generation system, or even one generation back it would be easier to give you a ballpark amount.

    If this helps at all, two years ago I sold the following system for $450.

    Intel i3 (can't remember the model, but it was 1st gen)
    GIGABYTE H55-based mATX motherboard
    4GB DDR3 1600mhz
    AMD 5770
    Mushkin SATAII 80GB SSD
    WD Caviar Black SATAII 500GB HDD

    I don't remember what case or cooler I sold with it, and I'm pretty sure that I kept my power supply.

    I'm sorry to say that the rig you listed won't be worth a whole lot, but depending on how up to speed they are on technology. Obviously you're looking for a dollar value, which I just can't give you.

    One resource that you could use is the appraisals section of overclock.net. I haven't been on that site in years, but after I sifted through the elitist bullshit that comes with hiding behind a screen name, I found tons of useful info.

    I searched ebay for individual items that sold recently and came up with ~$400. I'll try over clock.net to see what I can find. Appreciate the responses.

    Good luck man. I don't envy the chore of nailing a price down at all =|
