    Ebay (probably collection only due to size and weight)? Local paper free ads? (maybe the best bet due to the number of very similar systems on ebay sale) Friend who needs a OK computer for a bargain price?

    Failing that, strip the decent parts out of it and sell them seperately on ebay, due to the age of the bits, you're more likely to get a better price selling the system as a whole, however. Probably.

    That's not so bad of a PC, but I think second hand PCs don't really sell according to their spec. Put it in the Loot for £300 maybe (take £200+)?

    An alternative would be sell the monitor, graphics card, RAM, and maybe sound card and keep the rest for spares - never know when a spare PSU/case/optical drive/whatever will come in handy. All you don't have to worry about erasing your personal data that way.

    £200 to £250 if eBay is any indication.

    nevermind it seems you dont have a harddrive for it . i'd say find out how much each part costs on average and add them up.

    I'd part it out.

    If the keyboard and mouse are in good condition (pics would be good), let me know what you want for them.

    Threads merged and moved by me.

    gino_76ph, please be sensible with your posting... two indentical threads asking the same question in the space of 1 minute?

    Give us all a chance to answer, eh?

    Anyway, you've had some good advice from these guys, so give Ebay a whirl.
