    What do you think this system is worth today?

    Early 2008 Mac Pro configures follows:

    Model Identifier: MacPro3,1
    Processor Name: Quad-Core Intel Xeon
    Processor Speed: 2.8 GHz
    Number of Processors: 2
    Memory: 10 GB
    Graphics: ATI Radeon HD 2600 XT 256 MB

    The system has 3 Seagate Barracuda ES ST3750640NS 750GB 7200 RPM 16MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s 3.5" drives. These are Enterprise grade server drives and not your standard consumer grade drives.

    The system has 1 Seagate Barracuda ES ST3500630NS 500GB 7200 RPM 16MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s 3.5" drive.

    It comes with a wired Apple extended keyboard and Apple mouse.

    Thanks,

    S-

    As a starting point, you can check Mac2Sell, eBay (including completed sales), or Amazon for prices of similar models, to get an idea of what a reasonable price may be. Then adjust the price to account for condition, configuration, remaining AppleCare coverage (if any), etc.

    From your post.....

    your computer has 2 processors, so I am thinking that is a 8 Core Mac Pro from early 2008. If that is the case, I would say between $750-850 tops. Good care of the machine, and absence of cosmetic/functional problems can help in the price.

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