Price check on aisle i7

I am going to sell a computer of mine (probably on craigslist), and I need some advice on the sale price. Here are the stats of what I can remember. Can get more details tomorrow, but let's start with a ball park from here:

CPU: Intel i7-930 2.8GHz
RAM: 6GB G-Skill (can get speed later)
HDD: 1.5TB 7200rpm
MOBO: Asus...something or other
Graphics: Two MSI Twin Frozr (GTS N250) SLI'd together
PSU: 600watt
Aftermarket fan and heat sink (V8 180W CPU Cooler), Win 7, Office 2010
Decent case with carry handles (I'll find brand tomorrow)

Anything I am missing? Ideas on price listing? About 3 years ago, this was a $1500-1800 build. My guess would be $500 now?

yea I'd say 500-600 now sounds about right first gen i7, RAM is cheap (ie buying it now) ditto for hard drive space. So yea I'd list it for $600 obo and let someone talk you down to $500

Where do you think is the best place to sell? I'd ship it, but that would be crazy expensive.

You'll have better luck parting it out. The components separately are worth maybe $400+ but as a whole it's a hard sell. Base $500 builds these days are faster. Lets hope you kept most of the original boxes.
