PC master race

My brother sadly passed away recently and left a Dell Alienware machine (I think bought in 2013). This was a top of the line system when new and hasn't been used very much. Still apparently a powerful machine (but I am NOT a gamer myself). Case lights up and colours can be customised by user. Excellent condition except for couple of minor surface scratches on PC chassis/case.

As I am not a gamer I plan to sell it on for a reasonable amount, but I have NO IDEA what "a reasonable amount" is. I don't even know what it cost.

Can anyone help suggest what it might be worth?

I am based in UK, London.

Thanks for any help.

Sorry about your brother, but that's a nice rig he had. 8-)

Similar items on Gumtree and Ebay would give you a rough idea of what it would be worth, but I'd guess about £800?

I'd keep the 256GB SSD though, they're not easily wiped so the next user might still be able to get information from it.
