Lemme give you an idea of what you have. My CPU, the 3960x is the top of the line Intel CPU right now. It values around 1000. Your CPU is still being sold on Newegg for 1600.

Newegg.com - Intel Xeon X5690 Westmere-EP 3.46GHz 6 x 256KB L2 Cache 12MB L3 Cache LGA 1366 139W Six-Core Server Processor BX80614X5690

That price is heavily inflated to ensure they don't take losses on selling it though. My suppliers are selling it for $650 right now with no stock to be filled after these ones leave.

You probably wouldn't be able to sell it for nearly that amount, but you could easily get $500 for it, very likely more.

I know, but that is still worth more than a brand new 3930k.

Some independent ones do - however it would depend entirely on the particular store and even then it's unlikely they'd have any reason to want to buy a server CPU.
