    No idea how much it's worth, but you can always check for comparable sales on Craig's List and eBay to get an idea of its selling price.

    Depending on the display size (definitely not 51")…and it's exact specs. I wouldn't expect anything more than $100 for an iMac G5. If it's only a 17"…if I was buying…I wouldn't offer more than $50.

    But as chscag mentioned. Check ebay for current values. Sometimes they sell for more. And ebay and Craig's List are the best places to sell.

    Does your iMac G5 have an ISight Camera and 20" screen? If so I would say $100 or so. I just saw some on Ebay (The ISight model) for around that price. The Non iSight is worth even less. Around what Nick said above.

    Here is an example of the 20" iSight. There is one for more but not one bid.

    Should the iMac be the 20" 2.1GHz model about $50.00 in good condition with the original system install discs. With your Leopard DVD add another $30.00.
    Using OS X.7 or later make a bootable USB thumb drive before running Installer!

    I just picked up a 20" iSight G5 iMac for $5... fully working and in great condition.

    I could be persuaded to part with as much as a sawbuck for a pristine 20-inch, I'd keep it around to run a couple of PPC games of old.
