Default Q6600: What it's worth nowadays?

Well, losing interest in my Q6600, sort of want to trade it off.
I wonder what it's worth, i'm looking at a case & cpu .

Just to get some confirmation before i post in the B/S/T


Pic of my Q6600:
EDIT:

In terms of value say a case + cpu ?

You might have some trouble pairing off just a CPU and a case - they're normally considered separately, as someone's processing wants and aesthetic wants are rarely the same thing.

I think I'd be surprised to get $150 these days for the chip. They're great chips, but they're getting a little old in the tooth at this point, and the newer options have come down in price.

Hence why i was thinking of selling it off, i'm looking for a dually, and a case such as a 300/590 to work on.

I plan to upgrade in spring.
I'm curious , is intel keeping up with the LGA 775 afterwards?

I just bought 2 for $130 each, which is the average of the prices presented in this thread.

But yeah, I might need yours too....

Yeah I would say it's worth $130 to $150 shipped. Proven OC results usually get you some extra coin
