QX9770 ES .. get rid of or keep as collectible?

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
Hey guys, I like to upgrade my computer frequently and have had this QX9770 ES CPU for a while now but have literally only used the computer it is in twice (too many computers). Should I keep this CPU or should I try to sell it so I can use the money for a different build?

If you're not using it, then try to sell it. You could get a good price for that one, really...

I vote donate. To me. Jk

On a serious note, sell it if you can get a good deal for it, but if no one wants it for a fair price keep it

The biggest problem I have is determining it's value and the market for such a chip is so small so finding a buyer has also been a little difficult as well.

They sell for $500-650 on ebay. This is a no-brainer.

A say sell, 775 chips are still worth heaps (my E8400 is still worth $100 alone) for what they are. I don't see the price increasing for them in the near future so I say go for it if you don't have a computer to put it in

I would definitely keep it

Well I actually went out and bought a motherboard and everything many months ago to accommodate the chip but have realized that I never really use it due to my other systems (Core i7 920 and Core i5 750 systems and possibly an E5620 coming soon if I don't sell the CPU).

I always come across great deals for new chips but this was the first time I had such a high valued rare chip in my hands.
