Am i off with my used pricing?
$75 - CPU - Intel LGA775 Q6600
$20 - CPU Cooler - CM Hyper 212+
$25 - Motherboard - Micro ATX ASUS P5G41-M LE/CSM
$150 - GPU - Sapphire Vapor X HD5870
$40 - PSU - OCZ Modextreme Pro 500W
$100 - Case - Corsair 650D
$25 - Ram - Kingston 4GB
$75 - HDD - 2 x WD Black 640GB
For it being relatively close family I feel those prices are definitely in your favor. I would say more along the lines of :

$60 - CPU - Intel LGA775 Q6600
$15 - CPU Cooler - CM Hyper 212+
$25 seems reasonable - Motherboard - Micro ATX ASUS P5G41-M LE/CSM
$150...maybe a touch on the high side - GPU - Sapphire Vapor X HD5870
$20 - PSU - OCZ Modextreme Pro 500W
$100 good - Case - Corsair 650D
$15 - Ram - Kingston 4GB
$75 (for the pair) - HDD - 2 x WD Black 640GB

So that gives a total of $460. I would say as a bundle $400 tops.

That all said I personally wouldn't pay that for it for a few reasons.

1) too much of the money spend on the case, and not enough on other components (in gaming even a $100 i3 will be faster than the q6600).

******2) I would never run a q6600 and hd 5870 on an OCZ 500w power supply. Its just not high enough quality, nor high enough wattage for my comfort factor.

The only parts that would be of value to me would be the case, GPU, hard drives, cooler, and ram.
