In that case, you should probably be able to get $400-500 for it.

dont think a new gpu would work well seeing as it's a dell prebuilt.probably has some crap psu in it and the case might be too small

$400-$500

Operating System: Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit
System Manufacturer: Dell Inc.
System Model: Studio XPS 8100
Processor: Intel(R) Core(TM) i7 CPU 870 @ 2.93GHz (8 CPUs), ~2.9GHz
Memory: 8192MB RAM
Available OS Memory: 8152MB RAM
DirectX Version: DirectX 11
ATI Radeon HD 5770


Expect these things.
Cheap, nearly useless PSU.
Proprietary motherboard that you won't want to use anymore.
Stock CPU cooler so don't think about overclocking.
Bad cooling compared to 20 dollar cases out there.

Look at the PCI slots and the PSU rating. That alone should tell you enough about it.

Here's what I would have to do if I had to buy this system.
-new case
$40

-new cooler
$30

-new PSU
$50

-new GPU
$100

-new OS, because the old one is probably OEM and tied to the motherboard from Dell as well so they won't transfer it
$100

The only things you would be able to salvage would maybe be the card reader if you're handy at drilling and taping, the HDD, the ram sticks, some of the internal cables like SATA or whatever, and the CPU.

If you're even remotely interested in having your own computer for gaming I suggest you save up 600 dollars and build it yourself. Buying something like this is just going to annoy you down the road when you realize there is next to nothing you can do to upgrade it or anything to it.

Think like this, you see the graphics card, well, maybe you want to drop 150 dollars down the road for a better one? Can't. PSU is too weak, case can't cover your new graphics card, can't buy a new PSU because it won't fit in the case. Want to overclock? Too hard, can't fit in many better coolers, even if you could the case has horrible airflow. Got those things? Well, the motherboard was never mean to be very good at overclocking and controlling voltages and monitoring your system. You're screwed or it's screwing up.

===========

TLDR
If you're thinking about buying this computer, don't do it.
If you're thinking about selling this computer, find some chump to sell it to for ~450 USD. Throw in the monitor for an extra 100 USD.
