    I have a stock G5 I just got last year, its got 512, and 2x 2.5ghz cpus I also have the 23 inch apple display I would like to sell with it. Anyone know about what I should be looking to get for this, and what would be the best place to sell it?

    Go onto eBay and do an Advanced Search for Closed auctions, searching for G5 2.5 or G5 Dual

    Pick the auctions that resulted in a sale, with goods as similar to yours as possible. that will give you a range of prices. Don't sell the monitor and G5 together, you'll get more for them unbundled.

    If you live in a major metropolitan area like NYC, LA, or san fran, it's worth trying to find a local buyer on craigslist. It's free and easy to use... no registration required. Just make sure you "anonymize" your email address, otherwise you will get a lot of scam emails. The good thing about craigslist is since the buyer doesn't have to pay shipping and the seller doesn't have to pay ebay fees or deal with packaging, etc, you can sell it at a cheaper price and still make the same amount of money.

    Your second option, of course, is ebay. You might have trouble getting a good price for it though if you don't already have an account and some positive feedback. it looks like the going price for your machine will be around $1500-$1600.
