    I currently only have a Late 08 unibody 15" MBP, but I have simply fell in love with OS X and have now, after a year and a half, been able to transfer all of my work over to osx as well as hobby and entertainment.

    I want a 27" iMac (i5 or i7 Quad) and am wanting to get either the most I can get for my current rig or maybe make a straight across trade. I don't know much of current used market values for windows based PC's and I realise mine is old but a little help would be fantastic.

    First my PC:

    CPU- C2Q 9550
    RAM- 8GB DDR2-100 (G.Skill)
    GPU- 4890 1GB (XFX Brand, lifetime warranty)
    Hard Drives- 2 x320GB Seagate`s in RAID 0 and 640GB x1 for cold storage and swap file
    mobo- Gigabyte P45-UD3R
    -Newish Burner
    -Extensive Water Cooling, including a Dtek CPU Block, Swiftech GPU Block, Swiftech triple RAD, RES, pump as well as 9x120mm low rpm fans (Scythe &Yate Loon)
    -Case is a Cooler Master 830 Brushed Aluminum, I have removed the side mesh panel and have installed a custom acrylic window

    Monitor is actually an LCD TV (IPS Panel AFAIK)

    model number= Samsung LN32A550
    -3 x HDMI


    Misc parts include a Saitek Eclips keyboard (mint) and a Logitech G5 mouse

    -Almost every part has a receipt.

    So what do you guys think as far as putting her on craigslist for trade for a 27 inch imac

    basically how much will i need to throw in to make a deal

    You should know by now that entertaining ideas of selling something or posting "feeler" threads outside the marketplace is against the forum rules.

    Revised I would say you should sell it for whatever price you think is fair and replace it with the iMac.
