I am getting ready to move and I was considering selling my second computer which I never use. It is a frankenstein box:

P3-550
30GB
128 unless my roommate has anything lying around
TNT2
Ethernet
8x4x32x CD burner
Sound and what ever else.

I was thinking I could get $150, but it is such a hard thing to tell.

I was going to install Gentoo on it and build a lot of packages and not install them. Should I do that or just build a base install and X and let the buyer install KDE or Gnome?

I am at a large college and Gentoo is getting a lot of recognition, so I figured Gentoo might be a selling point.

I am also considering selling my 21" Mitsubishi and I was thinking $200.

if you demo it fyully configured, and put a game on it that runs fluently, and put something like xscreensaver on it to make it look awesome, it would go for prob even more.
screen betternot with a tnt2 system.

Setting it up as a server to sell? I hadn't thought of that, but I don't have a lot of server experience so I don't know whther that is best.
