Post Selling my HD capturing PC!

So... I've decided that I would like to switch over to a laptop since I'm sick of moving my PC from house to house each week for the past 5 months. Here are the specs...

Intel Core 2 Quad Q6600 2.66 GHz
4 GB Memory
750 GB SATA Hard Drive
Radeon HD 5770 (Gigabyte)
Corsair 550w Power Supply with Active PFC (ready for Crossfire X)
DVD-RW/CD-RW drive

I use a black magic intensity pro and it works fine. So if you were looking to capture Halo vids or whatever and get a YouTube channel going, this PC would be great for it.

I'll take $250. Only deal via PayPal. You'll pay for shipping.

True, the i7s are ridiculously fast. However, you can still put a price on this PC.

Well, let's try to piece something together currently that is comparable to my build.

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16819115221

This is a tad bit slower than the Q6600. So let's value my processor at $115.

Memory about $15.

Hard drives are a bit hard to evaluate atm with the flooding overseas. I'd say this is a $70-$80 HDD (or well over $200 at this moment).

The video card is about $120.

Power supply is about $60.

Optical drive probably $15-$20.

After it all, adds up to roughly $400. That is, if you were trying to match this system's performance as closely as possible with parts of today, you'd probably spend that much. So I would think I could sell for at least $300 or higher.

I'd even consider throwing in my BMI too for some extra. I won't need it when I get a laptop. And I'll have to buy a PVR.

I don't have any money put into it. It's not a custom built. That wasn't the idea. I was trying to formulate a PC of today that I can compare to the one I currently have. I figured from my reasoning it would technically be worth ~$400. So I said anywhere between $300-$400 should be about right.

You do realize that that PC is 5 years old. Max I would pay is $250. Also I highly doubt that runs the BMI software well.

I've been capturing for over two years. I have had no issues.

Kinda hard to believe. I build my PC recently and when I was capturing I got occasional FPS drops, which is an issue. And my computer is way newer and way faster.
