Moving to laptop, what is my desktop worth?

I've had this desktop since about 2010. Upgraded a bunch of things over the years, just not the power supply, CPU, or motherboard. Going to be moving soon, so finally looking to sell the old girl. Nooo idea what I should be looking to sell it for, though. If i'm missing something, let me know. Additionally, if there's a better place to be asking this, i'm all for it.

I might include my "gaming keyboard" and mouse, but they're just cheap things from amazon.

Motherboard: Gigabyte 890GPA-UD3H 890GX AM3 ATX DDR3 2PCI-E 2PCI SATA3 USB3.0 HDMI GBLAN CrossFireX Motherboard
CPU: AMD Phenom II X6 1055T Thuban 6 Core Processor 2.8GHZ
GPU: Radeon R9 270X
Power supply: XFX 650W XXX Edition Single Rail Modular ATX Power Supply ATX12V 52A 24PIN 80PLUS Bronze
RAM: G. SKILL PC3-12800 16GB DDR3 1600 MHz PC3-12800 DDR3 Memory (F3-1600C9D-16GXM)
hard drive: Samsung 850 EVO 250gb
Secondary: 1TB HDD
Case: NZXT LEXA S ATX Mid Tower Case Black 4X5.25 7X3.5INT Front USB Audio eSATA No PS
CD writer: Samsung SH-S223L/BEBS 22X SATA Black DVD Writer Lightscribe OEM
Monitor: Asus 20'' LCD (Yea it's just been my secondary for years)

Thanks all.

Part it out.

The mother board and CPU are worthless.

You can get some cash for teh RAM as ddr3 is always in demand.

The monitor, SSD and PSU are fine and will sell net you a few hundred altogether.

The r9 is a decent card for legacy gaming. Might get 90$ with some luck.

Don't think so.

Agreed.

I’d say $300-$400 including monitor would be the best you could hope for.

That was more or less what I was thinking/hoping.

You can always salvage the serviceable parts for a new build. I'm still running an old AMD Richland Apu as a Plex server.
