How much would you buy my PC for?

Thinking about selling my PC since I hardly use it for gaming now. I built it 2 years ago and added a few parts along the way.

My specs are:
Intel i7 Bloomfield 950 OC to 4.2ghz
Nvidia GTX 550ti 2gb video card
2TB 7600rpm (I think) HD
Thermatake liquid cooling system
Coolmaster 930 case
Corsair 750w PSU
8gb DDR3 corsair RAM
ASUS PX7whateveritscalled mobo

It had a windows 7 enterprise key, but when I switched my mobo's, Microsoft thinks it fake.

I paid about $1400 for it all together since the original build.

I'm guessing I could get at least $750 for it.

Just looking to get opinions on how much it would be worth now.

$750-800 sounds bang on (maybe even more for the maxed out RAM and 750W PSU *damn*)

Changing the motherboard will definitely change enough hashes to flag for another activation, however it was truly an enterprise key this would just reactivate with no issues no matter what you did. What version of Windows 7 is it actually?

for 7-800 i'd keep it (unless you already have 4-5 computers and just need the cash). will probably last forever surfing the web

I get replies after I sell it for $700 to a friend, lol. It was a true windows 7 enterprise version/key. Microsoft apparently only gives you 48hrs to reregister the key to a new mobo.

Thanks for the replies though. Atleast I got about what it was worth. Made a few hundred (kinda) buying a refurbished laptop with almost the same specs. Suites me better since I am a student now and the mobility is much better.

48hours is not true, and if its a real key you can call the number and they would just provide you with a key to use within a few min. Any way glad you got it sold.

Probably $400-500.

No tech savvy person would pay $750.

So, I guess look for someone dumb on Craigslist to sell to.
