Check eBay to find out what they are going for currently. Be sure to check out ones that have already sold and see what they actually sell for, not what the seller is asking. If there are any on Craigslist in your area, that would be a great place to look also.

I have seen them go unsold on eBay for as little as £10 starting price. On the other hand, advertise it as an Intel G5 Powermac MDD running Snow Leopard and you can ask for $1,000s on Craiglist. Apparently.

Its heavy, your gonna want to sell local or you will scare off most buyers with shipping alone.
I can vouch for this scare thing.
Several years ago on a G4-Cube forum I offered up a good operating G4 Cube + speakers and power supply free, just pay the shipping.
Right away I got a ton of PM's all saying they were interested, that was until each and every one of them found out what the shipping was going to cost.
Suddenly they all just disappeared.

This guy is asking $200, which I doubt is worth that much. He kept saying how it's fully upgraded and wouldn't budge on price.

Thanks for the reply guys.... I guess I will have to keep it under $200 dollars. I was thinking to sell it $275 but I guess is too much money.

Yeah, these pretty much dropped in value, considering they are over a decade old, and the only 'user friendly' OS is about the same age.
