Default Price Check - Intel I3-530 and Xeon X3440 CPU's

Hey guys/gals

Just posting here before I put up a formal FS thread on the above to cpus? What do you think the market price is on the:

Intel I3-530 (2C/4T), (2.93 Ghz), have the box, fan, etc
Intel Xeon x3440 (4C/8T, plus turbo) (2.53Ghz) - only the cpu
No overclocking on either one, both sat in home servers slinging media around.....

Need to sell both and want to post a fair price

My System Specs


Taking a guess based on the lowest "new" prices I've seen:

i3 530: try ~$70? Not sure it would be a fast sale though, it's gone as low as $90 new and the i3 540 is available for $100 new atm.

X3440: try $160-$170? If I were you I would rather keep this chip, current prices are around $210-$220 new but it's about as good a chip as an i7 860 that's still going for ~$300 new. Any reasonable used price won't be very good for the seller.
