I can help with a VERY rough guestimate, if you parted this out in the classifieds (prices do NOT include shipping):


TC-4 Rev. 2 -- $25 (??, couldn't nail down an exact price, supply/demand dependent)

Maxi-Jet 900 -- $10

Heatercore From '72 Chevy Nova -- $?? (depends on any modification you've made to improve on it)

AMD AIRGA 1700+ Tbred "A" -- $25 (consider the better 'B' core is going for $45 new right now)

Asus A7N8X nForce2 Mobo -- $50+

Abit Siluro GeForce 4 Ti4200 -- $100

Western Digital 40GIG 7.2K HDD -- $35

256MB Samsung PC2700 -- $25 (I have 2 of these, paid quite a bit for both too :( )

TurboLink 420W PSU -- $30

Toshiba DVD/CDRW Drive -- $?? (need more info on drive, prolly $80 for a 12X+ combo)

1 UV CCFL and Green Chieftec Server Chassis With Side Window -- $50


Tentative sub total: $430 plus shipping, packaging, time, heater core, and potential paypal fees.

I would say keep it you can't get back the money you stuck into the computer. School is almost out, go get a job and earn some money to mod your truck with. At $6.00 an hour, (low am sure you can find a job that you make more) and 8 hours a day, at 5 days aweek you can have $960 Minus taxes of course... ;) in a month $960 is much more then you could get for your computer and you don't have to buy a new one.

Keep the pc, I agree with drdingo21 about the "new" feeling. I went through it also a couple of years ago, and I am wishing I kept some of the stuff I sold to fix up my xtreme.

unfortunatley, when i was his age....i pawned off all my PC parts so i could build my '89 IROC (TPI 350 700R4). now if you have a car that has a little bit of balls from the get go, it will be worth it, but for a pickup truck with a V-6....id say keep the comp! BTW....cars and computers are my addictions :D....unfortunately, i got so heavy into cars that i didnt get another PC till i was 18 and working at a comp store after i graduated. now ive got a 2001 sonoma....and the addiction is still there....afterall...a 4.3L chevy is a 350 with the 2 back cylinders cut off :D
