maybe like $300-400?


My sound system costs more than my PC.        Check out my S340 build log "White Heaven"        The "LIGHTCANON" flashlight build log        Project AntiRoll (prototype)        Custom speaker project

I wouldn't know more than 400 USD for it (or like 430 euros or so)

but that really is on the high end, if you list it for lower you can sell it faster

It depends. If it's been used for a bit, to someone with knowlege of computers(aka LTT forums), $350 max. To a standard buyer, you can market it as a gaming PC and possibly get $500-600

To a competent user probably $350-$400. To a normal user probably $400-$500.

You guys are all basing the worth on the cost of components. That is all wrong. Anything is worth whatever a buyer will pay for it. Maybe in the pc building community people would only pay this much for it. But to most people you can probably get around $700 or more.

However the question was what this is worth, not what somebody would pay. And still I agree with you despite that.

"Anything is worth what its purchaser will pay for it" If someone is willing to pay $3,000 on a PC with components that you paid $300 for, then its still worth $3,000. This is because value is arbitrary. There's no universal law, or anything dictating that one CPU is worth $60 and another is worth $600. Companies price their CPU's at a certain value because it is a value that they think customers will pay for it while still covering their cost of producing it. The same is true of any product or service, including a custom made PC. A PC isn't worth the paid price of its component's. In fact the paid price of components has no more correlation to it's worth than the worth of a CPU does to the paid price of the silicon used to produce it. Because of this, the question of "what is it worth", and "what somebody will pay for it" are synonymous because every product IS worth what the purchaser will pay. If you can get a guy to buy a used diaper for 1 million dollars, then that's how much that used diaper is worth to you, and if you can only get someone to pay $1 on a yacht, then that yacht isn't worth anymore than $1. It's just economics.

You don't have to explain to me how money or "demand and supply" works. I read what you said above.

Yes but then you insisted that "However the question was what this is worth, not what somebody would pay." As I explained this is irrelevant because the two questions are synonymous. The only question which would render the above answers correct is "How much money did I pay total for my PC components?"
