    Default Home PC.....

    Since we got the laptop, the home pc is laying about unused.

    Its an AMD Opteron 1.8GHz 64 Bit processor (Very Fast!) with Decent Graphics card, 1G Ram (might even be more!) 200 Gb HDD. DVD Re Writer, Floppy drive and Antec Case.

    It is awesome for games and surfing the net as it is so fast. Dont want to sell it really but we need the space for when the baby arrives in a couple of months.

    What do you lot reckon as to its value?? Its about 18 months old and was handbuilt by my brother in law as an internet/gaming PC.

    My Mate sold one like this at work with an 17inc TFT Monitor for £80 so i guess second hand pc's don't fetch much these days trouble is the specs change so much so fast.

    Shame that - spent a fortune having it built to a decent spec. You couldnt buy these off the peg. It was handbuilt to game sepcifications.

    Is the Opteron a dual core as a 1.8 single core just isn't what i'd call fast.

    And graphics card is a major issue. Would nedd to know which one it is.

    Subject to this though, with quality parts such as the Antec case, i'd be heading to the £150 mark dependent on graphics and processor info

    I didnt spend that much on it.
    Cot around £800 to build from scratch. Still play all the latest games on it - COD 4, Tom Clancy Ghost Recon and all that.

    Split the parts and put on ebay mate - unless someone wants a cheap PC for their kid or something, it's not worth dealing with...
