Value of this PC?

Hey guys, I've been using my laptop pretty much 98% of the time for the past few months and I barely play that many games anymore since I have work during the summer and school during the rest of the year. I'll still be keeping my secondary around for when I need some extra CPU or GPU power, but I could use the money since I won't have a job for quite a while.

 

If I sell it though I'll have to do this to my hundreds of GBs of data that's on it tho http://youtu.be/IYH7_GzP4Tg?t=2m23s

 

You guys think I should let it go? How much do you think it is worth? Just the tower, keyboard and mouse. What it's got: 

 

Zalman Z11 Plus
Asus P6T SE motherboard
Intel Core i7 920 OC @ 3.5GHz (can be cranked a lot higher but I prefer lower temps and noise levels)
Thermaltake Water 2.0 Performer
12GB DDR3, an 8GB HyperX Fury stick and a 4GB Kingston ValueRAM stick
240GB Seagate 600 SSD
600GB WD Velociraptor 10000rpm 3.5" HDD
750GB WD Scorpio Blue 5400rpm 2.5" HDD
LG DVD-RW drive
Sapphire R9 290X Tri-X
OCZ ModXStream 700W PSU
 
Bitfenix Spectre LED Blue 140mm on the front
Two Noctua NF-S12A on the top
Two Arctic Cooling F8 on the sides
Two stock Thermaltake fans on the rad
NZXT Sentry 2 fan controller
 
Some Microsoft keyboard
Sharkoon Drakonia mouse
Blue LED strips installed inside
Limited edition danisnotonfire sticker on the side

You should keep it, If you sell it that's basically throwing away money because you barely used it and it won't sell for what you bought the components for.

Well it was used a lot over the past few years. It's almost three years old, it's not like I just built it, so of course it won't sell for what I bought the components for. 

 

The only new parts I've bought for it was during an upgrade I did this summer. I added the stick of HyperX Fury, the SSD, the 2.5" HDD, the front Bitfenix Spectre, the two side Arctic fans, and the 290X since the two 8800GTS 512's in SLI I had before just weren't cutting it anymore

I would not sell it as a package. You normally get better cash, if you just sell the parts. 

 

Just the GPU will get you around 200 USD.

$600 tops with that current GPU, those who buy them don't care what the specs are. They see a used computer, they expect it at extremely cheap price, unless you can sell it to some idiot at a higher price.

The other way is to sell it in parts, you might get more out of it. The only thing that you can sell is the SSD, HDD, and GPU, other items are way too old, unless if your lucky, some dude needs to have that exact same board for some special proprietary software he's running. for his business.
