I really enjoy building computers and I want to make a BAMF i7 / SSD system with the proceeds from my latest build (i got the all the components really cheap) but I'm unsure what sell price i should go for, what do you guys think?

Intel Quad Q6600 @ 2.4 GHz
4GB OCZ DDR3 Ram
1GB 512 Bit Asus EAH 3870x2
Gigabyte GA-EP45T-DS3R/DS3 Motherboard
Corsair 620W PSU
80GB Raptor HDD
750GB Hitachi HDD
Purdy green LED windowed case
Windows XP / Win7 dual boot

I was thinking $1200 because I'm a greedy bastard >:) but I'm more interested in finding out what somebody would actually be willing to pay for it lol The system has about a month of light use - I'm an aerospace engineer I really don't have time to game ....bit of an expensive hobby lol

I'd give you $750 without the 'bling', shipped to AUS with a two year warranty.

~$700 would be the upper limit, i think if you were to sell to anyone with half a brain. I wouldn't expect to get anymore then then $600 if i were you. And don't be surprised if you only get ~$500.

Haha yeah that was the point ... I wanted $1200 so I could build the i7 w/o paying more for it ^_^ a dream I know. Thanks for your help guys I think $700 sounds good I'll try for that. I really have no reason to sell though lol so no disappointment if I don't get any takers.
