    I am not aware of a good web site that has up-to-date used prices, probably there isn't one because it is so hard to keep track of used prices, understandable since even new prices change so quickly. Another thing to consider is that the value of a used computer depends upon the market it is being offered to. For example, your local want ads are a good bet because the potential buyer can come ot your house to look the machine over and test it out, avoid shipping charges - huge for a monitor - but your local paper is only local, and in my town that means a small market.
    My suggestion is to check out ebay. You can search on auctions that have already closed and find out what the final price was, you have a really large market and the top price you get may be more than you would have asked in a classified. Of course, it could be less, but you can list your item with a reserve price that you won't take less than, offering protection of a sort. Another thing to consider is selling the parts of the machine, if you are willing to go through the hassles. Sometimes RAM, PCI cards and various peripherals are worth more if not offered as part of a system.

    Everymac.com gives estimated values (high), and eBay gives a good actual range.
