possibly selling computer, need advice

Hey guys,

I recently started a new job that involves heavy travel. Sitting in the hotel room at night with nothing to do gets kind of old, so I was thinking about buying a pretty bad ass laptop from alienware. If I did, I will be selling my current system.

What do you guys think about the setup, and how much would you be willing to pay.

Shuttle SN95G5 (nforce 3 250)
1 GIG Corsair XMS Pro PC3200 Dual Channel
WD Raptor 36 gig HD
Maxtor 40 GIG HD
BFG 6800 GT (256MB GDDR3)
AMD 64 3200+ (Winchester), processor stays under 30 degrees C in this machine and is easily overclockable with this ram. I have it OC'd 400mhz right now.
Dell 17" LCD ultra sharp

Oh yeah, and there is a Lite-on 16X dual layer DVD writer in it as well. Backs up a DVD in about 20 min.

I'd part it out if I had some reasonable offers.....It does already have Win XP Pro SP2, and Win64 in a dual boot. I'd sell everything including the LCD for probably $1650. The parts alone i priced yesterday at $1500. I really would like to sell it as one piece though.

Even though it's worth that much your not going to get anywhere near that selling it on here.
Good luck getting 1300 from it.

I will trade you a Compaq 2190US laptop 2.4ghz/ 1 gig of ram/ cd burner-dvd player combo/ xp pro and some extras. Plus a little cash. Since you are going to be traveling this would fit the bill.

appreciate the offers guys, however, i have a laptop from work that suits me just fine for basic computing needs (hp 2.4ghz). The reason i'm selling my shuttle is because I am a gamer at heart and need to be able to play on the road in hotels etc. So I need a laptop that can play the games that I want, i.e. the alienware that has 3.6ghz P4, 1 gig 533mhz ram, and a pci xpress 6800 256mb video card in it....

I really just wanted your opinion on how much you guys thought it was worth, i'll probably sell it on ebay or something.
