G5 power mac parts, what they might be worth?

My power mac G5 quard has died and the apple shop are offering to cover the 140 labour charges if i let they have what is left of my computer.

As in the power supply is dead
The hard drive is dead
The logic board is dead

So for what is left do you think 140 is reasonable or should i demand my computer back in bits and try and sell the left over parts myself?

Im not in the UK, but I can say that people will buy anything on eBay.

And even Apple parts are worth something.

eBay search some of the parts you would sell, and see what you could get.

might be worth it.

Egads, what happened to this poor machine - - did it get struck by lightning, or did it get submerged?

Perhaps another way to view the question is to ask yourself what good stuff remains, and what are the general prices for these? Offhand, there's the case, some fans and the Optical drive...what else? How much RAM did you have installed?
