A majority of people seem to tell me, I could get a bit more for by componets if I sold them seperatley...
Like on eBay or here... Here is my list...I don't know if Im gonna do this,, I would have to sell all componets before any were shipped,, but what do you guys this?
is this nuts??
This is a g3 b/w reb b
g3 case 130
g3 power supply 45
g3 motherboard 225-250
640 megs of ram=100
20 gig harddrive=50
Ati rage 128=75
400 mhz cpu=60
Pro keyboard =40
15 for zip benzel
25 for harddrive mounting
5 bucks for the ide cables
4 dollar for the power cord
I don't know about all of the components, but the Rage 128 PCI should be going for more like $40-$50. I bought two for $45 each, and am selling one for $45 after one month (i'm not linking to that sale.) The AGP version goes for about half that. Just my $0.025.
Mac Pro 3.0 • 2 x SD • 10 gig • 4.5 TB • 2x 30" Samsung • 20" JVC HD Broadcast
Mac Pro 2.66 • 2 x SD • 4 gig • 3 TB • 24" LaCie • 100" BenQ DLP Projector
$914 for a revision B G3? If you can get it go for it, but don't expect it to be an easy ride to sell all the stuff.
Some of your price expectations are a little high though but the therory that the parts are worth more than the whole is true. If you piecemeal the system you should be able to demand a premium of 20-30% over what you get if you sold it as whole - especially the memory (if it's PC100 SDRAM) and the PCI video cards. The cases have some collector and mod value but the buyer will usually expect the hardware to be there (eg: power supply and face plates)
Some holds no value too - like the IDE cables, power cords and ZIP face plates.
So, street value of $400-500 as a whole - $650+ if you part it out.
the crap is piled high ... now trying to keep up
With 10.3.2 some third party CD-RWs are incompatible with Apples stock software (Although this may have just recently changed). You have to bear in mind that every 2nd or 3rd week FutureShop sells current (i.e.52*) CD-RWs for $30.
Just my 2cents.
I sold some PCI Rage 128s for $65 in the fall. I had bought some PC Radeon 7000s and flashed them to Mac. Not all such Radeons will work though and you need a PC to do the flashing in.
