Question How much could I sell my quad core rig from 2008 for?

So I haven't touched my desktop rig in over a year. Too busy with work so use mainly my work laptop for everything lately. It's sad but the rig that I put a lot of thought and care into building in late 2008 is just collecting dust now.

Q9550 Core2Quad, HD4870, P5Q-Pro MB, 4GB G.Skill DDR2-1000, Vendetta 2 CPU cooler, Enermax Modular 82+ 625W PSU, Antec 300 case. Might include my Vertex 1 120GB SSD in there.

The CPU had progressively not been able to maintain it's overclock as I used to have it running at 3.6 GHz stable, now it's 3.25 and much lower voltage. Also the 4870 last I ran it was starting to show artifacting and making a lot of details more neon green colored.

How much could I get for it? With and without the the SSD. I'm in the Toronto area.

Pricing threads are forbidden, but I would generally advise you to look up each part to see roughly how much it costs new, and then knock off 20% for being pre-owned and worn down. If you can't find a part, just apply the markdown that seems to be common (so if all your other parts are 75% less, just go with that for the part you couldn't find).

I don't think you'll get much for your GPU if it's artifacting (and it's going to be 4 years behind).
