    Price check

    Anyone viewing the graphics/monitor forum will have seen I have been given an AMD Athlon 64 4400+ Dual core based computer with a 250mb SCSI HDD and an NVidia GeForce 6150 GPU.

    I know its only had email and facebook usage.

    I've ripped Vista and all the bundled s/w out and installed 7 and I have to say that it's now pretty good for a 3 year old Compaq setup.

    Now this is going to family so I'm not looking to make massive profit but equally I want to give the person who gave me this a fair deal, even though she doesn't want any money, but I feel guilty because she gave me a rather nice widescreen monitor with it as well which would cost £100-£120 brand new.

    So question is...What would be a fair price...I thought between £80-£100 with a monitor (on loan). But then I'm utterly pants at selling stuff, good at buying, but pants at selling.
    Of course I'm perfect you just need to lower your expectations.

    £80 was what popped into my head.

    Re: Price check

    Hmmm, if I was buying components to build a similar rig 2nd hand, I'd expect to pay ~ £20 for the CPU, maybe £15 for the mobo, you don't say how much ram but assuming it's 2x512MB DDR2 then about £15 for the RAM. So £50 for the subsytem, plus a case, hard drive, optical drive and PSU. In which case, about £80 - £100 for the base unit sounds about right to me.

    As to the monitor, be *very* careful. Take £100 off them and give them a computer with monitor, and they'll assume the monitor is theirs to keep: but it sounds to me like you think you'll want the monitor back at some point? In which case it might be wise to try to get a cheapy second hand monitor for them to avoid confusion. Shame you're not Manchester based really, I've got a 15" TFT here that'd be perfect

    Re: Price check

    Thanks Vinny and Scary Jim, sorry for the delay in replying but it looks like I'm moving house.

    Jim, I've got an oldish 17" monitor that I use for the girl's computer but with this new widescreen I can upgrade that with my old one.

    I've gone with £85 for the base unit. And expressly told them that the monitor is on loan.
    Of course I'm perfect you just need to lower your expectations.
