Appraisal: Friend's rig

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
My friend kirk, I suspect, has been ripped off terribly. He paid his friend $950 for his friend's rig.

Here are his specs:

MSI 939 mobo with SLi and DDR
2 gigs DDR400 ram
asus x1650pro
939 athlon x2 4600+
sidewinder case
EDIT: two 7200rpm hard drives, each one is 150rpm, both are SATA
The comp is about 3 years old. And it keeps giving him random errors. ("error: driver stop" then windows bluescreens and restards, one core will not work sometimes despite formatting and CMOS clearing)

How much is this actually worth?

Well Curious I hate to be the bringer of bad news...but your friend Kirk got ripped.

For 950 he could have built a fairly respectable AM2 equipped computer that would accept a lot of the newer components out there where as the computer he has now is pretty close to the end of it's upgrade limits.

However if he's using this machine mostly for office or business applications it's actually a really decent machine it's just going to start feeling old with the newer games that are going to come out.

He wanted a gaming rig. He's a gamer, and this will never use an office or business application.

I'd say $600 at the very most (in the educated consumers mind).

I think it need to clear the Error before you can sell it.

And 600$ sounds right.
