    CPU/MOBO/RAM/GFX - Price Check

    Well i've finally upgraded to a rig worthy of playing BF3 and other new games, but Now I want to get rid of my old hardware as I have no use for it. A friend is interested in it for using for a media machine (he doesn't do PC Gaming) but I want to know what it's realistically worth without ripping him off or vice-versa.

    AMD X2 64 5200
    Foxconn NForce 590 ATX reference board
    4GB of Crucial DDR2 5300
    Asus NVidia GTX 8600 256mb

    All come out of my Alienware rig which was a good spec in 2009..

    Would really appreciate some independent valuation!

    AMD X2 64 5200 = £30
    Foxconn NForce 590 ATX reference board = £30
    4GB of Crucial DDR2 5300 = £40
    Asus NVidia GTX 8600 256mb = £20

    These are modest figures if they are a friend and you dont mind you could go a little lower. The total value would be £120

    Id drop the RAM to 20-25, as 6400 XMS has been going for 30 ish, as long as it's 2x2GB not 4x1GB
