My friend's motherboard just broke and he needs to get it up and running again.
Does anyone have an extra LGA 775 motherboard (DDR2 800 or faster) they'd be willing to trade for some of my parts or sell cheaply?
I could also trade parts to get a CPU for an extra AM2 motherboard I have and he could use that build.
I've got an extra AM2 motherboard (also an AM2+ that I'm more attached to), some extra hard drives (160-500GB, IDE & SATA), a bunch of 1GB sticks of DDR2, a GeForce 8400GS, a GeForce 5600 AGP, CD Burners, and some random other stuff like DDR, an old 775 mobo that runs DDR, SDRAM, and an old Athlon from 2000 or so.
My friend's got an E2200 (he's attached to it), 9600GSO (EVGA 768MB DDR2 35% OC), WD 5000AAKS, and some other stuff. I'll have him post and say what he's willing to trade.
Wikipedia says Pentium D's are all socket 775--which I have a DDR 400 mobo for. But don't worry about finding it. Would you happen to have extra AM2+ CPU's laying around? Some AM3's work with that and I've got an extra AM2+ board.
I'm gonna check if a 565 works with my two AM2 motherboards. If it works with either, I'm definitely interested in a 555.
How much would that get you? Well a new 555 is $90. So how new is your 555? I'd assume 75% of the new price would be appropriate if it has not seen excessively high voltages. How high does it overclock staying within manufacturer specs? If it's an especially good overclocker and unlocker, that might warrant an additional 5% or so. Does it unlock? Does it come with the stock heatsink? Thanks, if you're still interested.
