How much is my PC worth?

I don't think I would actually decide to change PCs, but if I were to sell it let's say on Craigslist, what would be a good price?
It's an HP Pavilion Slimline. Dual Core 2.50GHz Intel Pentium E5200. 800MHz System Bus 2MB L2 Cache. Running Windows 7 Home Edition 64-bit with 3GB RAM and 286GB Hard Drive. An average HP keyboard and mouse both wired. No camera. CD R CD RW drive. 3 USB ports broken on back but 4 port Rocketfish USB Hub. A Sapphire Radeon HD 7750 GPU at 1GB. If that's not enough info just let me know. I hope it is at least maybe $350!

Last question, is $699.99 a good price for a HPE h8-1360t? Its 3.4GHz and a 2GB NVidia GeForce GT630 with 8GB RAM and 1T hard drive, just to sum it up.

It Has a good CPU and GPU but the downside is the cache is a bit low... You can go ask your local PC Dealer Though I Personally Think You Might Make more money by selling every part individually.

The best way to find out is to check on Ebay. That will give you an idea of the value of your computer.

Honestly I'd just pull the GPU and sell it separately, you might be able to get $75 for it, they sell new for $100. Then you can try and sell the rest for parts for a few bucks. I don't think that many people will be interested in the whole thing so you might be able to make more money by parting it out.

If it belonged to someone else and they wanted to sell it to you, how much would you be willing to pay for it? Look at some of the big sellers that carry refurbished stuff and compare the prices. Remember they are selling machines that have been cleaned and repaired. They offer warranties. And the software OS is freshly installed, often a special version for refurbished computers.

Computers loose value faster than cars do, and that is pretty bad. You always take a loss on them if you resell them. Even buying new ones to sell retail can be pretty risky because if you have it on hand for very long its going to loose its value and you will sell at a loss. So as much as you might hope to get a good price, the reality is other people are giving them away for free just to get rid of them. Our county library gives away the old computers to anybody who will take them. It saves them the trouble of having to dispose of them.

I also went to gadetvalue.com and found that they estimated 200-215. However that's just based on the condition and the hardware and is calculated results

Well I could reinstall the OS freshly, that's not a problem because I can find the key I registered it with and go through the installation again. I also bought the GPU at about $100 (On sale). It has absolutely no physical damage and I always keep it clean (That means airdust some of the insides once in a while, lysol the keyboards whenever someone who I see as a bit messy using the computer). I don't have any bugs I've ever seen in the past couple months either. However, after all of this I could probably bring someone who doesn't have much experience buying a computer for $100 or $200.
I would say $25-50 depending on the monitor.

You have four or five year old PC with modest performance and hardware, 3 non-working USB ports and nearly obsolete DDR2 SDRAM. Furthermore, form-factor PCs are difficult to upgrade because of the space limitations.
Truthfully, I would say you're going to be lucky to get $100 bucks for it. Sadly, PC's more than a year or two old just don't have much re-sale value.

Oh forgot to say there are 3 total working USB ports, and 3 broken. But a Rocketfish USB Hub with 4 ports so in total there are 6
