I am toying with the idea of selling my G5.

What is a realistic selling price?

PowerMac G5 7,2
Dual 1.8Ghz G5
2.5 GB Ram (2x256, 2x1GB, 4 slots empty)
1 x 1 TB Hard Drive (Hitachi)
1 x 160 GB
Super Drive
64MB GeForce FX5200 Ultra
20" Apple Cinema Display (Acrylic, ADC connector)

I see prices all over the place for these things.

The 1Tb drive and the display included are the highlights of this.

The G5 itself would be about $40-$100. The hard drive alone is worth about $40. I only found two apple acrylic displays, one for 99¢ and the other for $50, so ignoring the 99¢ one, the display is probably worth around $50.

Add this all up and the whole set would be about $130-$200.

This is just a quick research and it could vary a lot, but it probably should be no less than $100.

The only drawback is the graphics card. If I were in the market for another G5, I would probably offer you between $100 and $150 for everything. For the tower alone, it's probably worth $50 to $75.

The market for PowerPC Macs is funny (Bad Apple CL ads, anyone?), so it comes down to what someone wants to pay for it. You could probably get $200 for the system if you find the right buyer.

If you are interested in parting the out monitor, I might be interested in it. My current monitor maxes out at a disappointing 1280x1024. Wonder how much shipping would be for that.

It would probably be a lot to ship the 20" to Texas. Check your local craigslist.
