advice on selling used Mac Pro 1,1 (2006)

I just replaced my aging 1,1 with a nice 2010 5,1 (love it!) and it's time to sell the old workhorse, and I'd like a little advice.

The "completed items" on eBay show these going for from about $400 (only 2GB RAM) to $750 (12GB RAM/1TB hard drive).

I've upgraded the video card from the stock 1900XT to the ATI 5770. I have 16GB RAM.

My questions:

1. The 5770 card sells separately on eBay for between $150-$300. Am I better off selling the computer with the old 1900XT card and selling the 5770 separately?

2. What about the RAM? 2x2GB of RAM is selling for about $50-$60? Separately or included?

3. I have lots of choices of hard drives to sell with the unite, ranging from a small 320GB drive to 1TB drives. Any thoughts about this?

Thanks, as always, for the advice for colleagues and experts.
