    OK, I'll take a stab.

    If I needed a computer I'd offer you $1200 or so. Dunno much about that monitor.

    But right now may not be the best time to be selling.

    true, but if people wait any longer... no one will want it (ie, after 970s are out... assuming...)

    sure they would, just not for $1200. $800 maybe...

    You said "no one will want it."

    No reference to price in that statement... your point was a little hidden I think ;)

    If the monitor is a tube, you'll get less. If it's LCD, you'll get more. Sorry guys, that's an excellent system, and considering what I paid for my iMac, you should start the bidding at about $1600 - $1800, IMO. If nobody takes it, then go lower. But don't settle for $800, my God. You're better off keeping it.

    Current prices have almost nothing to do with the perceived value of a used machine. The CRT monitor might be worth $200-$300 to the right person. It is very arguable that this is a "great machine" to most people. Overpriced since its inception, yes.

    interesting

    FYI-

    i just sold my DP450, 80G, 1.75G RAM, Radeon, clear/graphite apple 17" CRT, QPS Burner, Delta 66 w/ Omni I/O, and SCISI Card

    for $1400. although i paid almost $5000 for this a few years ago...

    id say it was a pretty good deal.

    Re: interesting

    How did you get 1.75 gigs of ram into your computer? I have the dual 533 and can only expand to 1.5 gigs. Am I missing something?

    no one in the know, ie, the people who'd pay more

    i'm a master of subtlety, friend. ;)

    in reality, you should be able to get about 14-1800 for it right now, i'd think

    sell sooner than later is the point

    The Gigabit Ethernet is rated @ 2GB RAM.

    Last October I sold a Digital Audio 733 PowerMac for over $1400 on eBay. People will pay good money for that machine oin eBay. Heck, in December I got $950 out of a 400 Mhz Pismo PowerBook.

    I'd say don't take less than $1500.

    Regards,
    Gus

    he has a great machine, the superdrive adds great value and pushes it closes to the middle powermac config. only thing that sucks is that crappy video card.

    thanx alot guys - as for the vid card - i needed to cut cost where i could. I needed the HDD and SD as i make consumer demo DVDs.
    Also i bought in aussie dollars (and will sell at that too) so everything is doubled in raw numbers.
    As for the screen, i am afraid it is a tube - albeit a brilliant one.
    In australia people are still slow to take up LCDs because we dont get many good dead-pixel and mainly dead-subpixel warranties.

    Anyways - it would be on ebay and since there are not many newer dpp macs on ebay i think i would get around AUD3100 for the whole lot.
    If you want US dollar - at time of posting fron MacOS 10.2 Calculator that is USD2000.

    Thanx again.
