    Im saving up. So I'm trying to make this into a little "job". Building and selling computers on ebay. I'm going to order these pieces to make a desktop. It cost me $330.04 total. How much can I sell it for?

    Motherboard: GIGABYTE GA-MA74GM-S2 AM3/AM2+/AM2 AMD 740G Micro ATX AMD Motherboard
    Processor: AMD Athlon II X2 245 Regor 2.9GHz 2 x 1MB L2 Cache Socket AM3 65W Dual-Core Desktop Processor
    RAM: 2GB 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 800 (PC2 6400)
    HDD: Western Digital WD5000AAKS Caviar Blue Hard Drive - 500GB, 7200rpm, 16MB, SATA-300

    I don't know what I'm doing with hardware, but I can build a PC and I just did a replica of my friends PC (so not much to study). A couple things are the same as his but I chose a little upgraded parts. I actually learned a lot just by choosing this cheap computer. Now I know what I'm looking for.

    Thanks. Sorry for the extra info

    You should just make 1 (for now), put it on ebay as an auction with a starting bid of $330

    haha actually believe it or not, didn't think of that. (no sarcasm) I would still like to know what someone would pay for this though (just looking to make $50-$150 profit from my computers.)

    WHAT ? $500 ? $450 ? You can get other desktops or even laptops with better specs for a lower price so thats not necessarily reasonable..

    But if you sell it to an average user, you could get more than what you would if you sell it to, say, a hardcore gamer.

    $0. No fan, overheat=Boom! Joke. About $300-$400 for a regular user. I take requests for making instead of random parts jumbled togeter.

    I'd say at least $350-$450 for somebody wanting a decent computer.Heck I'd buy it if I had the money.Then I'd upgrade it with a maxed out video card for gaming.

    Actually it has two fans built into the case, forgot to mention. I think its cheaper to get built in fans (at least one, then add more if necessary.)

    I'm trying to sell it a bit over priced to someone who doesn't know the difference. (starting $450) Then ill start charging a more cheaper price after I can sell two of these (enough for an iPhone 4

    I would take orders, then build to that, but I'm mostly trying to sell it on ebay and if I take orders then they don't pay, ill be sad

    . I'll only take orders for people who pay first (at least 75%) because I'm 15 and anyone who would buy from me would THINK they are going to try to rip me off.

    What's the graphics card?

    But no price it at around $250 to $300.

    I just bought a quad core 3.0 GHz AMD computer with 4GB of DDR3-1333MHz RAM, and a 750GB hard drive.
