If I wanted a new system (I don't) I would pay around 550 sell as individual parts or just upgrade, the GPU, Mobo, RAM, CPU need to go everything else take to your next system for the stuff that has to go I'd pay 200

It's really quite hard to put price tags on these kinds of things. The main problem is it's probably worth more to you than it is to a stranger. In my experience, you'll make more money by parting it out on the E or the list. My system is similar to yours, and without any periphs, I'm pegging it right around 450-500.

If your GPU is holding strong for you, it might make sense to sell the board/CPU/RAM as a set, and keep the rest. I've once purchased a complete setup, and although I got a good deal on it (thanks jj!), I wouldn't do it again. I would, however, buy a CPU/board/RAM combo. Just my two cents.
