If you can get $40-60 for a single-slot GX then I'll be impressed. I'd
place the value at closer to $25 for an old GX and $45 for a TGX. TGX+
still commands a huge premium though.
Also, how it's configged makes a big difference. 64MB of RAM is worth at
least $50 by itself, a 1+GB internal disk has value, and a Weitek Powerup
would add more value. If the monitor is anything more modern than a
GDM1962B then it's likely worth more than the machine is, and even the
1962's are very nice.
Sure you can pick up a bare SS5 for only a bit more, but the cost of
adding RAM, disk and a framebuffer to get it running pushes the price up.
