As a starting point, you can check Mac2Sell, eBay (including completed sales), or Amazon for prices of similar models, to get an idea of what a reasonable price may be. Then adjust the price to account for condition, configuration, remaining AppleCare coverage (if any), etc.

From your post.....

your computer has 2 processors, so I am thinking that is a 8 Core Mac Pro from early 2008. If that is the case, I would say between $750-850 tops. Good care of the machine, and absence of cosmetic/functional problems can help in the price.

If selling through an online site, factor in shipping costs/fees
