it sells for 280 after rebate from newegg.
so, yeah you would have a good chance of ebaying it for around that much, especially if you have all the boxes/documentation.

If you have an x58 mobo, I don't know why you would even want a cpu like that. The mobo is one of the main things that ups cost when going i7. If you already have the mobo, why not? You could get by with 1 gig of ram for awhile until you get some more money if you don't plan on playing any demanding games till you get some more.
