I would say figuring out which ones are worth the most is not the most important consideration, although definitely important..
What you need to consider foremost is what is the most valuable to those who buy on eBay..
Obviously, there are very few "big business" type customers on eBay, so trying to land a million dollar domain is probably silly..
The best strategy is to consider those who own small businesses and find domain names for them..
And a good way to know which small business type domain names sell best, look at eBay history here:
A REALLY COOL TRICK:
Want to make some quick dough? Well, this is not always a sure winner, but you will hit dead on probably 50% of the time..
Check this out..
1. Basically, look through the above links. Find some of the killer domain names that sold.. ALL the green colored prices are the ones that sold.
2. Copy all the domain name names for the green colored prices..
3. Brainstorm related domain names that are close to the one that sold.
4. Goto godaddy.com and buy those domains that are related that are available.. A good technique is to just do the searches while brainstorming..
5. Once you find a few you can buy, buy them for the $7 bucks that they cost..
6. Last list them for a similar price.

I'm sneaking a question in here because I know someone else asked a question someshat like this earlier.
Where do I go to look for domain names to sell on eBay? How do I find out what they are worth before I buy them and put them up for auction? Are the names sold alone or do they have to have a web site? I noticed that ext.com sold for a really high price $6,000.00 I think.
Under the above heading in your emails is the email from Dale Jones.

Hello, I have spent the last few days reading just about everything from the website. I have alread started a small ebay biz of my own and I was plan to add to it. I already sell ebooks but the ones I sell came with templates to make it easy to list on ebay. I just started a few weeks ago and I have sold around 10 at $2.00 each. my ebay store is http://stores.ebay.com/carascollectibles if you would like to see what I have started. For now I would like to know if you have templates or ads already to use for the ebooks you have in this package? What is the next step in your training? Thanks Dale
When you click on the link above for carascollectibles you land on a page that states "the store has been closed".
Would you please find another example for us to look at?
O'REILLY: All right, Lis ... I sell bibles in Tarzana, CA. Lenny comes in, & he's got a ... beard. He's wearing a dress ... I have to hire him?
LIS WIEHL: You can't not hire Lenny.
O'REILLY: Yes, but ... Don't you see my business point here? ... the state of Calif .. is forcing me to hire people that may be detrimental to my business.
LIS WIEHL: appearance shouldn't matter. When you're selling bibles.
O'REILLY: Ms. Rivers, you understand ... better than Lis because she went to Harvard Law School, and that disqualifies her from common sense.
