    Hello,
    I am thinking about selling my 1.1 Mac Pro and I was hoping you guys can help me to put a price on it.
    I got 120 GB SSD (SanDisk) set up as a system drive,1,5TB HD, 250GB HD and 1TB HD
    I have used jabbawok's instructions on how to install ML on it:

    It has been running rock stable, I can even do updates via appstore.
    iMessage and FaceTime working fine as well,
    I got flashed ATI 5770 and I get the boot screens.
    I also have apple iSight camera (firewire)
    System RAM is 48GB kingston memory (6 x 8GB)

    CPU's are upgraded to 2 x Xeon quad core 5365.
    Firmware is upgraded to 2.1.

    I really don't know if I would be better off selling the parts individually or the system as a whole.
    Looking forward to get your thoughts.

    I dunno how much you'd get if you parted it out but as a system I would expect that machine to go for between $750 and $900

    Thanks,
    I forgot to add that I am based in UK.
    If I convert that figure to GBP I think I am better off keeping it.
    Maybe I will use it as ESXi host.

    Yeah Britain is weird. They seem to have effectively isolated major portions of their markets from the rest of the world and used equipments prices often heavily differ. I don't usually look to see but it wouldn't be hard. Just go to ebay UK and search for Finished Auctions of systems with similar specs. That should tell you the high and low values to look for local to you.
