I moved from the US to London and brought my Dreamcast with me but it isnt compatable with the cheap tv I bought here. So I had to break down and buy a PAL Dreamcast.

Now this US Dreamcast is redundant and useless to me. Is it feasible that anybody in the UK would buy it via an ebay listing? I have the step down converter that I'd include too which was like 15.

I mean, theres no particular advantage to a US Dreamcast over the PAL version is there? It just seems like extra hastle, really. So I cant imagine why anybody would buy it. I wouldnt be interested in getting less than 20 for the package (The DC, a third party controller, cable, and step down converter).

except for the 52k modem (pal has 36k) they are the same (red logo instead of blue)
my guess is u would get 20-35, just for the novetly of have a US dc

i would just keep it incase u pal dc breaks down,or u get an old tv
man that must really be an old tv, 10 + years old if it does not support 60hz

Its a new tv. I was surprised that it didnt support NTSC. It was cheap and some brand Ive never heard of (Maxim, I think). Maybe thats why.
