They go for €200 - €250 here for all models of the iMac G5 here in Ireland. I'd only go for an iSight model if I were you though.

----------

At the most I'd pay $100 considering the notorious problems with the screen and capacitors. Unless it's an iSight model or an Intel model, in which case I'd pay a higher price, but no higher than $250.
There's no such thing as an iMac G5 intel.

The chances of me buying a G5 iMac is between slim and none especially and $415 or so dollars. Mac's cost more here even old one ones but that thing is a bad capacitor away from being and ACD.

I just thought I'd introduce my fellow Americans to German Mac prices..

Second hand mac's are expensive here in Ireland too especially the laptops. I don't like the iMac G5's most if not all are too unstable and the mid-late G4's do well today for everyday computing. I saw someone selling the original low-end 20'' iMac G5 for €310 what a rip-off.

All Macs are expensive everywhere, be it used or not. Really, only the Intel iMac 'G5's are the only 'good' ones. The cheapest iMac G3 I found on Kijiji was $10, but then the second cheapest was well above $70. Boy am I glad I didn't pay that much for that really old iMac!

Oh and by that I mean the iMacs that are Intel but look like the G5. I'm pretty sure those are real, but I'm not sure.

If you're about the looks of the G5 iMac, get an early Intell on instead. The G5 iMacs have many problems and look identical to the plastic Intell iMacs.

I wouldn't buy it. I had few of these: 1.8 20", 2.0 20", 1.9 17" and they aren't worth to bother. Slow, poorly designed internals, enormous failure rate, maximum RAM on G4 level... etc.

Sexy? Not even close IMO. :p But de gustibus...

This one from link is way overpriced, it's worth maximum $150 nowadays.
Maybe this bunch of illegal software is so attractive? No need to torrent it, you know ;) IDK, but I doubt that someone will be dumb enough to pay 370 € for that piece of crap...

a beefed up iMac G5, maybe $250-$300, an iMac G5 for parts or repair = $150-$180.

My guess is that it could be between $100-$300. Personally, I wouldn't get an iMac G5 given the problems they had with capacitors.
