How much for 2008 Mac Pro (2x2,8, many extras)

Hey Guys,

I'm planning on selling my 2008 MacPro and get a MacBookPro instead.
Two Reasons: The Macbook (with SSD) is faster in any aspect, an through thunderbolt it is also upgradable with everything I need.

Question: How much can I charge for my MacPro?
2008 Modell (bought in February 2008)
Upgraded with:
16 GB Ram (4x4 Dimms)
Samsung 470 SSD 256 GB
3x WD 640 GB in Raid0
Radeon Graphics 6770
Intensity Pro Video Card by Blackmagic
eSATA extension Card.

It has some minor Scratches, but looks like fresh out of the Box


THX a lot.


Oh and by the way I still have the OVP
iMac Retina 4,0 GHZ, 295X, 256 Flash
iPad 16GB 3G, iPhone 5 white

can be in the $900-1100 range, tops. Good care of the machine and no functional issues can help in the price. And the marks cant stop to a serious buyer, if any, you can sweeten the deal in some way (taking some $$ off or something). For me, the second-hand market is more price-aware than hardware-aware, so many little people are keen to pay a reasonable price for upgrades. Bear in mind also, the computer is 5 years old.....

If selling through an online site, factor in shipping costs/fees
