Default Any resell value on a possible dying soundcard?

So I just pulled my X-fi ExtremeMusic (gold backplated one) out of my tower cause of its odd behaviour on playback (occasional hissing/crackling, audio getting stuck in a buffer in utube or movie playback on avi's) but in games it rarely occures or voice chat. Also doesnt occure on anything i record into it since these things have crept up on it.

So again i am lead to the questions ... is it actualy dying? Is it something someone could buy from me & repair if so given the info I just have & more so what kinda value then would it have ?

The Xtrememusic has been EOL for a while now. If it's not working, it's probably not worth anything.
