Are their any brands of tower/monitors that are notably valuable as scrap?

You mean like the NeXT Cube? Or late Apple ][?

Just any brands that have either a lot of scrap in them or a lot of well paying scrap

IBM, pre 1998, especially 3xx mini-computers and Pentium or earlier
IBuyPower pre 2010
Falcon laptops (totally modular)
Compaq. Either very expensive boards or pure junk
Packard Bell
Leading edge (pre-Pentium)
Apple II (usually socketed boards)
NeXT computers, especially workstations

Sega development computers. 100% socketed. If it boots it’s worth thousands though

Anything from the 8086/8088 era
Most 486 desktops.
In both cases desktops are better sources than towers. Better boards for smaller space.

1978-1982 Motorola based computers.

Most Tandy and Sears computers.

Most Soviet computers have gold cap chip boards and sockets gold cap chips.
