Default Price Check : Older CPUs

I've got a pair of QX6800 Extreme Edition CPU's, and a pair of E8400 CPU's.

Any ideas what these would be worth these days?

Also got a few Xeon W3503 Dual Core S1366 Processors (weird)

Along with these are some vanilla Intel P35 motherboards, 2 x P965 Asus boards (P5B), and a pair of X58 Dell Precision T3400/T3500 towers/boards (what the xeons are in).

Thoughts?

imho

QX6800 $80++ = more of a collector item as it is on the 65nm process or for people with older chipsets.
E8400 $20ish? = quad or go home at this point on the 775 platform
vanilla p35 $20-$30??? = older chipset in the middle of the pack. DDR3 or ddr2? guessing ddr2 ...
asus p965 $20-$30?= even older chipset ... but asus ...
I would definitely seek out a intel p45/3 board but these older boards might do if I couldn't find a replacement soon enuf.

Server gear? idk much

Just sourced an Asus P5E WS Pro motherboard (X38 Chipset) and a QX9650. Thoughts on prices for those??

Ebay them. I bet as a combo you would get a good sum because they are high-end of that generation (for collectors mostly)... but DDR2 though ... maybe add some DDR2 (2 sticks) to help sell.

List them as BUY-IT-NOW for at least $299+?? for 30 days with Best Offer of 'your choice'. After second week if no one buys it, change the listing as an Reserve Auction (Reserve: $240). This way you list first to get noticed in the search listings for a couple weeks to draw attention then can maximize your audience.
Be sure everything works ...

The E8400 is one of the best dual core 2 duo processor, easily $50 at least. I'm using one now, lol.

I wanted to buy a E8400 in 2008 but settled for a Pentium E5200 OCed to 3.6+ GHz lol.

I saw quite a few E8400 on ebay. ca that sold for around ~$20 so ymmv.
