I always figured my PC would be cheap if I had to replace it, like say in the event of it being stolen. This is probably because I bought it in smaller bits over a long period of time and never had to spend a lot in one go.

So that got me thinking, how much is your PC worth? Should be interesting what setups fellow forumites have.

Mine came to a total of R13205 :

Probably around R8000 or so. The GT755 is quite weak compared to current gen.

Mine:
Lenovo Y5070 (GTX960M 1080p IPS version): About R12k. Peripherals totals it to probably around 14k, though only if I'm at home as I don't take any of them with.

about R200

Built from spares and scrap, never paid a cent for it. Not great specs (duo core, 4GB ram, 320GB Hard drive and a 1GB Nvidia GPU).

About 25k. The only components that really are of value are the graphics cards and maaaybe the CPU (4690K for the overclockers)

Interesting, I did this calculation for insurance purposes last night.



Of course, most of the stuff I got at discounted prices (Carb etc.), but this would be the replacement value.
