It seems to me that a modest SS20 (50mhz proc + 64megs ram minimum) is
worth about $30.  Better SS20s are worth more, but I would imagine it
would be quite hard to find a buyer would would want to spend $125 for
the machine.  Still, considering what is in it, it could be worth it to
someone.  Thing is most people won't care about things like the second
video card.  That's always the problem with trying to sell high end
configurations of things.
