You paid $900 for the bike originally right? (MSRP was $1100 if not mistaken) with all the upgrades you're probably in the $1,200 to $1,300 range out of pocket expense. I'm guessing you could probably stick all the stock stuff back on it, sell the upgraded stuff seperately and walk away with about $700-800.
Bike (stock configuration) probably $500-600, then XT stuff and new cranks will yield you anothe $100-150, maybe a little more.
If you're planning on getting a new XC bike, why not just buy a frame and swap over the components? You could probably get $200-300 for the frame alone, and buy a new one for $500, then you wouldn't take as big a hit! A 5" travel fork isn't too bad for XC unless you REALLY get into racing. The wheels may be a bit heavy, but maybe you can sell those seperately esp. with the Atom Lab rear hub.
