What, did I bruise your ego? WAKE UP. Your computer is old.
The computer i quoted wasn't supposed to "beat" your machine, but it was supposed to compare what an Average Joe can get today and clue you in that old computers aren't worth jack shit.
Yours might have 80gb, 512mb and both a RW or DVD, but it is still
2 years old (in other words obsolete) and questionable on warranty. And dismissing the processor out of hand?
You really don't know a damn thing do you?
The computer I quoted has full warranty, up to date technology (CPU and monitor) and can easily be brought "up" to matching each part on your system starting at $499. After matching everything I bet the box would be at about $650-$700.
If you want opinions on how much your system is worth, then don't fucking argue the details. If you have to ask the question in the first place, that means you don't know what you are fucking talking about. Arguing without knowledge is just one step above a kneejerk "nuh-UHHHH!" and makes you look like a fool.
