It is surprising how well some of these older chips do in sales. Folks who don't care much about speed or graphics buys them for incremental upgrades or for troubleshooting an old, non functioning mobo. As Intel discontinues lines, the prices will only increase on EBay (amazing how much too).

It is, I made a mistake of giving away (yes, for free) an AMD Athlon 64x2 4400! I never realized the demand for old processors. But, hey, the kid built a sweet system with it, and it beats sitting in a old parts box, or drilling a hole into it to make a keychain.

Not entirely relevant, but I bought a mobile core 2 duo t6400 on ebay for $10.80 to upgrade this used laptop I just bought. Hollaaarrr! I agree, they still make a good upgrade path and those old core 2 duos are still way relevant.
