    A friend of mine borrowed money and gave his mac pro for collateral. Months passed and still no money has been payed to me. However, now I need money to pay bills after being layed off. I told him about it and he told me I can sell it because he has no use for it anymore.
    I'm new to macs, so please help me out in pricing this mac pro.

    Is about ~$800 a good price for a mac pro with the specs below?

    Mac OS X 10.9 Mavericks

    Specs:
    Used: 2009/2010 Mac Pro 4,1 -> 5,1
    cpu w3690 6 core
    8800 GT
    250 gb velociraptor
    DDR3 Ram 16gb

    If not, what should be the going price for this?

    I'm from Louisiana. Thanks for your help.

    That's a strange configuration. The video card is worse than a 2009 would come with, so it's been downgraded to either a 2008 Mac Pro video card, or a PC video card. The hard drive is also smaller than a 2009 would come with, so that's strange too. That CPU wouldn't work in a 2009 unless someone has flashed the 2010 firmware into it, maybe that's what you mean by "2009/2010 Mac Pro 4,1 -> 5,1".

    Basically a great processor and decent ram, but very oddly backward video card and hard drive as if someone shoveled old components into it. On Ebay I would say $500-$700. I think $800 is very optimistic, but I don't know what your area is like. Look at comparable mac pros on Craigslist for an idea.
