How much would my Hack sell for?

Well I'v decided to save up for a real Mac at some point, so I'm wondering how much I could expect to get if I sold my current machine, either as a Windows machine, or an OSX one.


Here are the specs, and some pictures.


GA-P35-DS3L motherboard- $90

Q6600 processor- $180

SAPPHIRE 100218L Radeon HD 2600XT 512MB 128-bit GDDR3 PCI Express x16 HDCP Ready CrossFire Supported Video Card- $100

Kensington 2GB ram- $40

350GB hard drive- $70

Case and PSU- $100

Wifi, dvd rom, keyboard, speakers, fans etc- $50




So new it would all be about $530. How much do you think it would go for given it's already built and running OSX?

Check ebay or craigslist and find out what similar systems are going for, then put your system on there for sale.


Part of the trade off of PC hardware being so cheap, is that PCs don't have the highest resale value- the parts and full systems are just too easy to get brand new. You might make a good selling point out of the fact that it's a Hackintosh- that mobo in particular is sought after for Hackintoshes since it's no longer widely available. It might save someone who is looking to build a similar system a lot of time and effort.
