Probably post for $3-400. Deal range should be ~$250ish.

That's an incredibly low estimate. You can sell the CPU/MB/RAM alone for around that much. I know that because I just sold an inferior combo for $230 this week.

This system is worth about $500.

Yeah thats why I said it'll be a good " Deal " for someone if its ~$250. You can get a modern 10th gen i3 for ~$190 + $100 motherboard + $100 16gb Ram and that'll be~ $400.... so no way people should be paying $400 for the motherboard/ram/cpu combo. The case/hd/cooler is not really worth that much.

1TB SSD = $100
Case = $50
PSU = $40
Cooler = $50

What do you mean they're not worth a lot? It all adds up.

May I know where you sold your desktop? I have an ad here for almost a month and not many responses.

I admit I thought the 1tb was a mechanical HD, since I saw the (SATA) at the end and focused on that. But for used computer most people just don't put that much emphasis/care about the old case/cooler/power . The Corsair 250D case not totally in vogue right now in the ITX department, old AIO cooler has questionable mileage left, Rosewill PSU doesn't have that great of reputation. The valuable parts are just the CPU/Motherboard/ram and yes the 1tb SSD. You can price it for $500 but will it sell at that price? If you don't mind waiting around you can fish for top dollar. Depends on how eager OP is to sell.

I'll be happy for OP if he can get over $400. But I still think it'll go between $3-400. If he is eager to sell then price it below $300 and someone will pick it up for sure. If he had a half way decent GPU in there, then its a different story.

That's an excellent machine, I'd say shoot for $500. If it has an OS and some freebies (Office, VLC, etc) it will be attractive to a wider market, plenty of people out there that don't have the time/patience/knowledge/care to fuss with parts and just want a turnkey system.

mITX will be a + or - for some, small size vs expansion options.

For reference, I bought a mobo/chip/ram package with an i5-4670,16GB DDR, and a MSI H87-G43 for $140 last March. Sold a Core 2 quad 9550 machine for $160, and a 6600 for $120 this year to people that just wanted a basic browsing rig.

It was just a CPU/MB/RAM combo, not a full system. I sold it on Kijiji.
