    I plan on selling my Mac Pro 4,1. Never really sold before And I am never great at setting profitable prices. Was hoping some experts could help.

    Here are the specs:

    Mac Pro 4,1 flashed to 5,1
    CPU: 3.46 hex W3690
    GPU: EVGA GTX 780 6GB Vram Modded for Full EFI Boot screen
    RAM: 24gb of 1333z OWC
    SSD: 480GB Mercury Extreme Pro 6g via Apricorn Velocity Solo x2
    SSD #2: 128GB Mercury Electra 6g via Apricorn Velocity Solo x2
    HDD: WD Green 3TB
    OTHER: Inateck USB 3.0 card (4 slots)
    BODY: Great, no blemishes

    I used this as an editing rig for about 3-4 months before christmas came early and got a decked out 6,1.

    What do you guys think this can go for given all the peripherals, etc?

    When it comes to buying people are going to price each item in the computer to see if it's a better deal then buying a base 4.1 and adding those parts.

    Mac Pro 4.1 Base = $550 (Used)
    3.46 hex W3690 = $310 (Used)
    EVGA GTX 780 6GB = $750 (For 6GB Version Used)
    24gb 1333mhz $225 (New)
    480GB Mercury Extreme Pro 6g $400 (New)
    128GB Mercury Electra 6g $85 (New)
    WD Green 3TB = $75 (New)
    Inateck USB 3.0 card = $45 (New)
    Apricorn Velocity Solo x2 = $160 x 2 (New)

    Total $2,620

    Your problem is going to be selling this system with the 6GB video card. It's an expensive card, and people might want to use there own, or get something different. Your best bet is to sell that card separate and the system with stock GPU. This will maximize your return. Without the card you are looking at $1700 to build something similar.

    At that point as a shopper I would look at other systems at the $1700 range to see if I can get a better deal, if not, I would come back to yours.

    I know that to get a base 4.1 it would cost $550 and $535 to get the same CPU & ram specs without the HDD's. That comes to $1085.

    This might help give yo an idea of how shoppers think.

    Since you didn't list any peripherals you would be hard pressed to get anything for them.

    No worries. Just wanted to make sure you knew the difference so that when you listed it for sell you didn't use the word peripherals when referencing the internals of the computer.
