I have always found the rule of thumb
"take the original value of the system (excluding monitor) and halve it every year"
to be fairly accurate, for desktop/deskside systems anyway.  Monitors (and laptops)
don't seem to depreciate quite as fast.

BTW, don't be so quick to ditch your Athlon.  I have an AMD XP1800+ and a 2.4GHz
P4 system here and honestly can't tell the difference between them.
