Advice needed on trade

I currently have a C2Q Q6600 CPU. I was recently offered, in trade for the Q6600, an E7200 and an E6400.

I primarily game on my machine, but the C2Q has been nice when multitasking.

I would probably sell the E6400, buy an upgraded PSU, buy an upgraded CPU cooler, and Step-Up my 8800 GS to a 9800 GT.

My questions:

Is this trade reasonable?

How much is a used E6400 worth?

Thanks!

    2 CPUs for one? Sounds reasonable.

    Um... not really. I doubt you could sellt he 6400 for much and the 7200 is a lesser CPU then what you have. Unless you have an extra machine that you would like to use, but are lacking only the CPU, this trade doesn't seem to make much since.
  3. ebay is your friend for pricing of used CPUs.
  4. dude the q6600 is the sweet spot

    the biggest misconception today is that 2 cores is all you need since no games use more then 2 core (ok almost none!) - 4 cores rocks for back ground programs
  5. Thanks guys!

    I decided to stick with the Q6600.
