    Hey I was wondering what would be my G5's value if I were to sell it today?

    Specs:

    PowerMac G5 Dual 2.7GHz, 4.5GB RAM, 250GB HD, SuperDrive (DL DVD-RW, CD-RW) ATI Radeon 9650 256MB, Mac OS X 10.4.7, AppleCare

    This computer is in perfect condition and has never been kept on the floor, always in a clean place on a desk. It's only about 14 months old, and has no hardware problems, and has AppleCare for the next 2 or 3 years I believe.

    eBay is a wonderful resource for computer values.

    Just look at past auctions and see what it's fetching.

    And now why would you sell a machine like that, that is completely up to date? :rolleyes:
    Or are you secretly trying to sell it here on the forums, without admitting it? ;)

    You might want to wait a little longer...

    See this thread..

    Yes, it is from me, but I think it is valid.

    Max.

    This computer does everything I'd ever need it to... except for playing PC games! The PC I have at home is way too slow for playing games at good settings and FPS and it's not worth upgrading it (too many things to be changed).

    Does anyone have any real guesses/opinions instead of $50?

    Keep the G5 for a good 3 years. Build a gaming PC now for like $600. (It can be done). But i think its worth at least $2000 because of the Applecare left on it.
