Buy yourself a copy of MicroMart, £2, every Thursday. Look at the deals available and consider if you could source the parts cheaply enough to beat them!

Depends on age/condition whether there is any warranty left. You really need to post the make/model number of each component Rough guess.

CPU E660 = £30 - £35

Mobo = £20 - £25

HDD = £15 - £20

DVD Writer = £7

Power supply and graphics card and RAM will depend on make/model. Windows 7 if it is OEM is tied to the motherboard so can add £50.If it is retail then it will be worth a bit more.

The answer is simple, It is what other people are willing to pay.

Look at magazines (like Micomart)and local papers to find a 'market' price.

As you are not sure what about your business plan, but think there must be a pot of gold at the end for anyone selling computers, have alook at the amount of companies who have gone bust over the last few years.

That's not the case.
