    Hey guys, so I'm looking to buy an old mac pro just to use as a server and maybe play a little warcraft. Ive found this one on kijiji and I'm wondering if 500$ is a fair/decent price for it. (got him down from 700$)
    -2 X Intel Xeon 2.66 GHz
    -8 Gigs DDR2 667 MHz RAM
    -ATI hd radeon 5770
    -500 Gig Seagate 7200 RPM
    -5 X USB
    -2 X Firewire 800
    -2 X Firewire 600
    -1 X DVI video out
    -2 X Mini display port out
    -2 X Ethernet
    -2 X Line input
    -1 X Line output
    -1 X headphone out

    From what I've gathered its the first gen Pro from 2006, with a bit of customization (Ram and GPU).
    Let me know what you guys think any help is appreciated

    Stay very far away. $500 is way too much for that machine if you are in the US. I would also attempt to stay away from a 1,1 if you have the option. There are similar spec machines in my area (DC Metro Area) that are selling for $300, you can even buy that model from an online refurbisher for less than that. I won't go into why the 1,1 has its downfalls, as I'm sure many other users will tell you, but to answer your question, that is NOT a good price.
