My brothers rig got an upgrade on Christmas so I'm trying to sell off his old gear for him. I don't have the retail boxes or accessories (other than the IO shield) any more, but I can include some SATA cables from other boards if necessary.

The Q9550 is somewhat lapped, but it's not all the way to the copper. The CPU basically has very smooth nickel on the top with a little copper showing on the corners. The motherboard is in great condition.

Edit:
The CPU is E0.

Stepping of the Q9550 is needed for a proper appraisal.

If its an E0, then it goes for 170-175 here on OCN.

I would put the board at like 85

Hey teh, what's up?

I think you'd better try selling the Q9550 on eBay, you'll get around 200$ for it.
Here, it goes for less, around 150$, but there isn't a definite opinion about it's value. Some say it's worth is 170-180$, while some say 130-140$ (and that's my opinion), depends on max OC.

P35-T2RS - 55$ shipped.

I have to agree with X3, the value varies quite a bit on here. IMO, a C1 is worth ~$120-$130, and an E0 is worth ~$150, though high overclockers do tend to bring a little more, but lapping generally hurts the resale. If you're looking for a quick sale, I'd definitely stick to the lower end of things, there have been a number of Q9550's up in the $175 and up range that have sat for quite some time, and with the cost of modern chips being so low, it can be a hard sell. With an i5-750 only running ~$125 used, and 2500k's $200-ish, the market for these is getting smaller.

Thanks for the input so far guys. The Q9550 is indeed an E0. When I used it in my primary rig back in the day I had it running at 4.2Ghz, but I can't promise these results considering how old it's getting to be.
