    Default what is a fair price?

    I have upgraded my computer and have parts that are not need that a friend is wanting, think is I don't know what would be a fair asking price. Could someone give me some hints? The parts he will get are:

    1) P4 2.53 CPU
    2) Intel 845GVB motherbord
    3) 512 DDR333 RAM
    4) GeForce Ti4200 Video Card with 128mb Ram
    5) 300 watt Power Supply

    Any advice on realistic and fair prices to charge would be appreciated!

    Thanks... Shomenno

    Ask him what hes expecting to pay and if you're offended its too cheap.

    Take it to cash converters and see what price they offer then multiply it by at least 2 but more likely 4 to get what they would resell it for.

    Depends on the degree of friendship, your financial position, his or her financial position. The question is too wide for strangers to relate.

    P4 2.53 CPU about $140-$160
    Intel 845GVB motherbord $40
    512 DDR333 RAM about $70
    GeForce Ti4200 Video Card with 128mb Ram about $80 -100
    300 watt Power Supply $10 -15 bucks more depending on brand
