My System Specs

Question AMD 955/965 BE price check plus a question or two

I am wanting to buy a 955 or a 965 BE used but I don't know what they would be worth. Considering you can buy a 965 BE new for $110. How does depreciation work in PC tech? Once installed it loses 10-20% of its value right away, like a brand new car off the lot? I know sometimes older stuff goes UP in price like my DDR2 ram kit, a guy offered me $40 bucks for it.
Also, does overclocking lower its value? It is shorting its life span by doing so and I can only go off what knowledge of buying used auto parts...guy runs his car hard, usually worth less with all that extra stress put on it.

Cheers,
