Early 2008 Mac Pro 3,1 for sale

Your Mac's Specs
iMac (retina 5K), 27" 2019
I've had this Mac Pro from new and it has been almost faultless. It has been used primarily for image and design work, so not a hard life by any stretch. I had it upgraded about 5 years ago, by a local tech company where I live, called Elpatech. They have been excellent. I recently bought a new iMac hence why I'm selling the Mac Pro.

Price is: £150 ono

The specs are:

Mac Pro 3,1 (2008)

2 x 4 Core 2.8GHz Intel Xeon E5462 processors

2GB DDR2 ECC memory

128GB SSD + 500GB HDD storage

Radeon HD 2600 XT Graphics Card

The one thing worth mentioning is that there is a fault with the RAM riser board so these may need to be replaced in future in order to upgrade memory, otherwise they are working in the current configuration.
The fault, I would add, was nothing to do with my selling it. The machine works beautifully, it's one of moving forward. In my small house, space is at a premium and the new iMac will be fitting into a new smaller space.
I have set it back to factory settings, so all the new owner will have to do is decide which OS they want to run.

If you have any questions, I will endeavour to answer or point you in the direction of Elpatech!
I have tried uploading images but they don't seem to load , so anyone interested please let me know and I can send you images
