    I have a pretty unique looking coffee table. I'm thinking about selling it locally and clearing up space in my room. What's a good price to ask for each computer, or everything together?

    Both computers from what I was told have issues. What those issues are I don't know. They are missing at least a hard drive.

    Broken PowerMacs are in the free to $75 range in the US... for the right buyer. Forget anyone paying for shipping.

    Find the right buyer on CL and you'll be happy. I sold a single 1.8Ghz for $50 last weekend. I was happy to get that.

    I'd be interested in the GPU possibly in the "left side" G5. Do you know what model it is? Also, what is your ZIP code/location? it may help potential buyers to know where this is coming from.

    I'm located in northern Indiana. How do I find what GPU it has?

    Those of you in the US are really fortunate when it comes to buying and selling Macs. Here in Europe I've rarely seen a G5 PowerMac - just the empty case (for Hackintoshing etc) - going for less than 50euros ($US53)
    A quick check on local sites and I can see 2 empty G5 cases for sale at $US106 the pair. Plus shipping of course.

    I guess the best way is to carefully remove it from the system and see any stickers on it. NorthEAST Indianna by chance? I am in Toledo, OH.

    NVM.

    Just realized the discussion was about GPU and not CPU.

    :rolleyes:

    I'll see if I can find it later tonight. I'm in the South Bend area, near the toll road.

    Left side appears to be a late 2005 to my eye. Either 2.0 DC, 2.3 DC or 2.5 QC. If it's one of the air cooled models and was still operational, that would be a sweet vintage Mac to own. OP...Should be a sticker after you remove the door towards the bottom, as eyongren mentioned, might give you a clue as to the original configuration. Either way, you could probably get a couple of bucks for these, case alone.
