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.

$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.

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.

Why would you split apart a B&W G3? It's one thing with a PC, but an Apple machine kinda doesn't work that way.

I'd just find it's current value all together and put it up for that

Well, it was worth asking... I got alot of feedback on other American boards to break it apart and sell it all on eBay....

I guess it comes down to how much time you want to spend on getting the most from your machine.
I would sell it whole and be done with it.

Not to mention what it'll cost you in eBay fees by listing all the parts separately... tongue.gif

is this nuts??

yup. but as Robert said "I guess it comes down to how much time you want to spend on getting the most from your machine."

Another strategy to maximize your sale might be to present the computer in its most basic form.
G3-400/128MB/20GB/CDRW, kbd, mouse.

then when the lucky winner contacts you, offer to boost it up to 640MB with the xclaim card for another $100 (or whatever). If they don't go for it - put the RAM and card on eBay.
