    Need help with market price estimate

    I am trying to put together a market value analysis for someone who has bunch of Dell PowerEdge servers to sell, but even after looking at e-bay I am not sure of their market value. After looking at all the forums, I felt that this might be the best place to post my request as it seems like lot of people here buy used servers, so if you can provide me with your best estimate as to what is the approximate market value of these servers, I will really appreciate it.

    NOTE: THIS IS NOT AN OFFER TO SELL, I JUST NEED SOME RELIABLE ESTIMATES.

    (QTY: 14) Poweredge 2450 / Dual P2 400 MHz / 256 MB / 2, 20GB, No Raid

    (QTY: 58) Poweredge 2450 / Dual P3 600 MHz / 512 MB / 2, 20GB, Raid5, PERC-2 HW Controller

    (QTY: 12) Poweredge 2450 / Dual P3 733 MHz / 512 MB / 2, 20GB, Raid5, PERC-2 HW Controller

    Thanks,
    Sam

    Is this for property tax purposes, out of curiousity?


    My estimate is about $40000. Of course, if it's for taxes, they want a low estimate. You obviously have some leeway.

    Closer to 65k.... You also have a false listing, they have 18.2 gig drives, not 20 gig, and with 2 of them, you cant run raid 5, it just has a raid card...

    Yes, I'm sure a lot of people here would like to know if these are going for public sale.

    I'll start the bidding - I will take the worst server in the lot (including the broken one) for $25.
