Hey everybody,
The AGP slot on my motherboard recently broke and I am left with two
Pentium 3 slot 1 733MHz processors. If anyone is interested, I am
asking $350 American each or $550 for both. I also have 256 MB of
RDRAM with ECC if anybody is interested, $150 American. Just drop me a
line if you're interested, or if you have a slot 1 motherboard with an
Intel 820 chipset that supports PC800 RDRAM with ECC. Thanks a lot.

LOL you can buy a P-4 AND a motherboard -with- ram for that! They might be
worth $50 each?

$50 to maybe $70 each on Ebay right now; MAYBE as much as $150 as a matched
pair.

LOL! You might want to cut your asking price by about 75% if you want
**anyone** to take you seriously. Also, you realize this isn't a FS NG,
right?

And even that is silly. WTF would anyone want that when something like an
AMD XP would be cheaper and faster? You can buy an XP chip and board for
$150 or less add $30 for some much faster DDR ram and it will KILL those 2
chips.

Athlon XPs start new around $80, don't they? I mean, a Duron would be under
$70 for sure, but that would require a new motherboard, and new RAM.

> You can buy an XP chip and board for 150 or

Which is a much heavier-duty upgrade than simply switching a Slot-1 CPU...
one of the reasons the slot-1 chips seem so overpriced.

$30 these days won't get you 256mb... prices are back up, though I hope it's
a blip. If you've got 768mb in an existing P3 motherboard...

There's at least one Pricewatch vendor offering them for $28.

$50'll get ya an XP1800 at new egg. Biostar has an Nforce IGP board for $65.
Some cheap DDR ram and you even get Gforce MX440 graphics thrown in for
free! Besides you'll get ata133 support etc.

Upgrading a slot one board just seems kinda silly to me unless you can buy
the CPU's for like $10-$15.

So same price to at most $20 less than a new Slot-1 CPU.

> Biostar has an Nforce IGP board for $65.

That's $115 now.

> Some cheap DDR ram

Have you noticed the price going up lately? It's up to over $100 for 512mb
again... not much by the standard of a few years ago, but pretty pricey
compared to the last couple.

> Besides you'll get ata133 support etc.

Which requires you get a new hard drive, likely as not, to take advantage of
....

Plus the new motherboard will possibly require a new power supply and case
(certainly both of those if the Slot-1 system was from an vendor that used
non-standard ones, like say, Dell.)

It's certainly silly over $100; under that, if you're comfortable building a
new system, it's probably better to build a new system or replace the
motherboard. But they're not _as_ cheap, and they do take more time, which
is more valuable to some people than it is to others.

As for the matched pair issue, there's a certain silly cachet around duals
that seems to drive up the price of matched pairs on eBay.
