I don't think I'd pay much more than $50 used. It's an older chip, and is probably under $90 if you can find one new.

Yeah...when you consider that an E5200 can be bought, brand new.. for ~$75+/-..and will nicely beat the E6400. Overclocks much better, runs cooler/less power, etc.etc. I have an E6600 that i thought of selling..but i don't think i'd get enough to make it worth my time...better to keep it for B/U. Same with my E8400..likely wouldn't get >$125..if that, and it's way too good of a chip for me to sell for that much. Now...if i was starving..$50 would be huge.

Anything more than $50 is way too much.

I'd keep it really...might need it someday, to troubleshoot a rig or something...
You could re-use it in another rig...
My E6420 is now in my wife's rig. Use to run at 3.2GHz, now down to stock 2.13GHz...

Yep I agree. Unless somewhere other than here you can sell it for $75 or more.

Gf wants me to build her a super-budget rig for fast surfing and very light gaming (2d stuff). Heres what I was thinking;

my e6400 $50 (going towards my quad core)

my adata 4gig $40 (going towards faster ram)

NCIX.com - Buy ASRock G31M-S mATX LGA775 G31 DDR2 1PCI-E16 1PCI-E1 2PCI SATA2 Video Sound LAN Motherboard - G31M-S/M/ASR In Canada.

NCIX.com - Buy Antec Basiq BP500U 500W 24PIN ATX 12V Power Supply Active PFC - BP500U In Canada.

NCIX.com - Buy Seagate Barracuda 7200.12 250GB Hard Drive SATA 7200RPM 8MB - ST3250318AS In Canada.

resurrect my aluminum chenming 601AE (free)

RC 7 (free)

she currently has dvd, audigy 2zs, 4.1 speakers (old creative cambridge soundworks) 19" crt, kb/mouse

total cost so far $260.96. I'll search the bst for some sort of video card. Not too bad a build for the price.

Almost forgot, she wants a few red led fans and a blue fluorescent so it'll be purty,lol!

Sorry that PSU looks like utter junk.

Spend $20 and get this one NCIX.com - Buy Seasonic SS-400ET 400W EPS12V 20/24PIN ATX Power Supply Active PFC 80PLUS 6PIN PCI-E 120MM Fan OEM - SS-400ET In Canada. or $7 more and get this NCIX.com - Buy Sparkle Power SPI ATX-400PN 400W ATX12V 20/24PIN Power Supply W/ 120MM Fan P4 AMD Ready OEM - ATX-400-PN-B In Canada.. both of which going to be 100x better than that 500w

And why bother selling the ram? For a basic machine pc2-5300 memory is perfectly fine for that sort of application.
