    I'll be selling this and wondering how much can I get for it. Everything but 2TB HDD,SSD and RAM is out of warranty.

    Mac Pro 4,1 - Quad 2.93
    GPU: ATI Radeon HD5870 (1GB)
    RAM: 32GB (4x8 DDR3 1600Mhz modules) + 8GB (4x2GB ECC modules) as spare
    Bay 1: stock 640GB HDD
    Bay 2: Seagate 500 HDD (SATA III drive)
    Bay 3: Seagate 500 HDD (SATA III drive)
    Bay 4: 2TB WD drive
    Optical: Crucial M4 128GB boot (1 month old)
    Stock DVD drive
    Apple Numeric keyboard
    Installation DVDs (incl. Snow Leopard)
    24" Fujitsu-Siemens P-24W (1920x1200) display

    I was hoping for 1200-1400 USD.

    As a starting point, you can check Mac2Sell, eBay (including completed sales), and 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. You can also check the Apple refurbished store to see what similar models are selling for.
    Don't check just one source, but get an average from all sources to get a realistic pricing idea. For example, Mac2Sell may quote a higher value than the market bears, while some sources may quote lower.
