    I saw a used Sempron 2800+ PC for sale today. I'm not keen on ebay
    and I couldn't get a price match.

    What do you reckon is the going price for this PC which a dealer
    bought from a liquidation sale and is selling on.

    Sempron 2800+
    Gigabyte mobo: PCIx3 PATAx4 SATAx2 6xUSB ports at rear
    512 MB memory (fills both slots)
    CD-R only
    small 40 GB hard drive
    XP Enterprise licence (maybe it means XP Pro?)

    In quite good condition.

    £100? £120? £140?

    Here's what you can get for £120 + carraige:

    "Dell Optiplex 755 small form factor PC, E4300 Core2Duo CPU (2.2Ghz),
    1GB DDR2 RAM, 80GB HDD, DVD-ROM, 6x USB 2.0 ports, parallel/serial
    ports, Intel 965 onboard graphics. Fantastic little box and seriously
    quick. 120 quid plus post gets it.

    Email if interested."

    £50 or so. Mostly for the XP licence, if it's genuine.

    Wouldn't have much value here. Maybe US$75 if the case and PSU where

    I work in Euros so 65 quid is equivalent to about 45 a few months ago

    Indeed. I've suddenly become 'rich' without doing anything. Vive l'Euro

    The Sempron 2800+ must be a decent enough processor (ok so yours was
    faster) so why is that system worth so little?

    I'm on an Athlon 2100+ (Via 266 chipset) and figured the Sempron 2800
    would be a step up. No?

    The license is probably corporate, so worthless (non-transferable).
    Look at eBay completed listings for the other stuff:
    CPU ~ £10
    HD ~ £10
    MoBo ~ £15
    CDR ~ £1
    Go to somewhere like eBuyer and you can buy the bits to build a system
    with e.g. Athlon 64 X2 5200+, 160GB HD and 2GB RAM for £160[1].
    That's without an optical drive or operating system, but presumably you
    have those already, and it will provide a noticeable improvement over
    your current system.

    [1] That's with a cheap case/PSU, although not the cheapest. Most
    people would probably advise you to get something better - if the PSU
    fails it can take other stuff with it, and a better case will often
    have better cooling, which may prolong the life of other components.
