Go online and search for similar systems that are being listed for sale. Check the pricing.

Another thing you can do is to tally up the costs of all installed components. Then figure in potential shipping costs plus how much "profit" you would like to receive.

Take a look at potential selling websites - such as Tom's Hardware/Classifieds. Become familiar with the rules and requirements to list and post a build for sale.

For the most part, I am very much leaning towards "stockpiling" computers and components. Having them directly in hand for future use may be worth more than what you might receive (even with a profit) by selling a system.

Just my thoughts on the matter.

You have decent parts.

A pc will often fetch more if it is disassembled and the parts sold individually.
That is because it is unlikely that a buyer will want exactly the same pc.

Find your parts in used condition on ebay.
Then filter on completed auctions,
In green you will see what the part actually sold for.
Parts are easy enough to sell, if it includes a case, shipping costs will be a problem.
