$500 seems reasonable. Go to eBay and search. You can search completed listings to get a nice ballpark.

I completely guessed on that figure to be honest. I remember them being $800 a few years ago.
eBay Sold Listing - $510

Is it worth that price though? IMO, no way. You could buy/ build a Core 2 Duo or find a refurb Core 2 Quad for $500 these days with a 8600 GT video card. It'd blow that Mac out of the water. It just wouldn't run OS X.
