    Default How much for this PC?

    So a friend of mine is looking to offload a small form factor PC she has.

    It's a mini-ITX system running a pentium of some sorts, a 750Ti, 2x60gb SSD's and 8gb ram.

    It's housed in a EVGA Hadron Air case.

    What would be a fair offer to make? pics below.

    .
    Wee bit vague.

    DDR3? Brand of motherboard? Brand of GPU?
    Pentium of sorts....get friend to run Speccy, free DL and it will help more.

    I sold sons old parts for $200. Which were:

    ASUS mATX P7H55-M MB
    Intel i5 750 CPU @2.67Ghz, Lynfield
    2 x 2Gb Kingston RAM + 2 x 4GB Gskill (heatsink covered) RAM = 12GB
    Gigabyte HD 7970 GPU

    Looks like a model number on the back.
    That may help to get the specs.

    I would guess (and it is just a guess) somewhere in the $200 - $400 range depending how much you want it. The trouble with PCs like that is they have dated poorly, a dual core pentium and a 750ti would have been a good budget gaming pc a few years ago but now neither component is much good for modern games and if you are not gaming on it you don't even need the graphics card.

    It's new enough to have USB 3.0 and would make a good media player or general purpose PC but if you want to game on it you would be stuck with older or less demanding games or expensive upgrades.
    Bung a 4 series i7 and a modern graphics card in it and it'll game like a beast but that might require a PSU as well and by the time you buy all that you might just as well have started from scratch.

    I'd turn it into a HTPC, maybe add a WD Red or two and call it a day.

    Depends on CPU? if its overclockable it would just need a 1 TB HD added .. probbaly ok for 1080 gaming.
    $270-$300

    Given the choice myself between this, or the OP's, I'd choose this for $200 every single time

    You didn't mention if those parts were in a case though, or individually sold, so I'd say that OP could probably get around $200-250 for it relatively comfortably?
    But it's definitely not going to play the latest games in any level of detail at a decent resolution with a 750Ti. Older games, sure, but it's below what I'd call an "entry level" gaming PC for sure.

    I didn't factor an OS into my Guess by the way, if it has a copy of windows that adds some value. I don't think I'd personally pay more than $300 even so.
    Doesn't look like much in the way of hard drive mounting options either.

    The case is an EVGA hadron Air
