Default i3 System

Hey everyone,

Would love a little help to decide on what my setup is worth?

Case: Fractal Define Mini MATX
CPU: Intel i3 2120 with CM 212+ Evo cooler
MB: Gigabyte GA-H67MA-UD2H-B3
GPU: Power Colour 6870 (AX6870 1GBD5-2DH)
Mem: 12gb DDR3 1600 (1 8gb kit + 1 4gb kit) Runs at 1333mhz because of chipset limitation
Power: OCZ 700w
Storage: 1 x WD Blue 7200rpm 500gb 1 x Seagate 500gb 7200rpm 1 x A-data S510 SSD
Other: NZXT Mesh fan controller 1 x Scythe Kaze maru 140mm 1 x Scythe slipstream 120mm 2 x Fractal 120mm fans (included with the case)
Network: Atheros AR928X A/B/G/N wirless (dual channel)

Was initially a comp for a "fruit" based company operating system. Probably the EASIEST to set up anywhere. Everything ran 100% with King of the jungle and even with the new mountain based feline OS(s).

Oh yeah, it runs great with Windows 7 as well.

Any insight would be great!

I would say to post it for $700 on Kijiji. Lots of people who would be willing to spend more than that at future shop for something less. You did a nice, clean job putting it together too which makes it aesthetically pleasing.
