    I have a stock Power Mac G5 (Single 1.6GHz, 80GB HD, 256MB SDRAM, SuperDrive).

    I'm not asking how much YOU would pay for it (I know that MR users are too smart).

    My question is: how much do you think each of the following would go for on eBay?
    1. As is
    2. Hard Drive upgraded from 80GB to 250GB
    3. RAM upgraded from 256MB to 1.25GB

    I'm trying to determine if I should include my purchased RAM (2x512) or sell it separately. Also, I recently saw a deal on a 250GB SATA drive and am wondering if I should buy it and install it to make my auction more enticing?

    Ive been noticing with these older g5s, they dont sell for that much more if they are upgraded. THey all sell for around 750-800. dont put more than $50 into it. just my 2 cents.

    Unfortunately, that single processor really limits the value.

    Essentially, you've got the guts of a Rev "A" single processor iMac G5 in that tower
    with a bit more expandability.
    The motherboards in some of those units also had problems.

    If you get $800.00, you've done OK
