    How much do computers depreciate

    Hello,

    Currently this is my system:

    dual xeon 2.4GHz
    1gb DDR333 Corsair XMS
    radeon 9800 pro 256MB
    2 x 80GB hard drive
    DVDRW
    CDRW
    17 Inch monitor
    Blue case with side see through window (neon fans)

    Basically for all that I paid about $2400 4 months ago.

    Just a few questions, how much do you think I would get for it now? And how much do you think it would be worth in 2 years?

    Thanks,
    Dan D.

    After my thorough market research, I have determined computers depreciate at approximately 13.73927572395% per month for the first year. In the second year their value depreciates at 8.627458398% per month. In the 3rd year - well by then you're better off just throwing it in the trash. They're worthless.

    inogenius pretty much summed it up.
    Go on pricewatch.com and add up the prices for your parts.
