8-10 gig hard drive is nothing these days, if you do downloading you would need at least 60-100 gig.

52x CD drive should be replaced with at least a DVD drive if not a CD burner. DVD burner would be even better.

Windows ME sucks monkey balls. Format the hard drive and go with Windows 2000 or if you are computer literate try out a distro of Linux.

You may even want to kick up the ram to 512 meg.

With that being said, I would think that system would be worth $200-$250 at best. It might be good to run a server as long as you load a more secure OS.

Is the monitor flat screen or flat panel?

I'd agree in 200-300 price range on value.

Considering that you can get something like this for under $500 and it is a much better machine (not that I am recommending this brand or any prebuilt computer for that matter), I would have to say that his is only worth around a couple of hundred bucks at most.

so- if any of you guys could give me some ideas on what to ask for...

See if you can get this:

AMD Athlon XP 2200+ CPU
60GB Hard Drive
DVD/CD-RW Drive
512MB ram
Windows 2000
GeForce4 video card

That should put you somewhere in the ballpark that you are looking at.
