I went to my little local computer repair/sales shop for a SATA cable and saw a stack of boxed Intel processors. Curious, I walked over and looked at them. They were all Pentium D 930s and were priced at $19.95 each. Would it be worth it to buy a bunch of these and try to sell them on Ebay? :D

Probably. I would actually be tempted to buy one from you if you'd get it for me and only add the cost of shipping, :p

I'd definitely buy it for 20$, and i think it could sell well up to 50-60$

Something does not smell right here. $20 for a 930 hmm. They are probably refurbished by intel.

For that cheap I would have purchased one and checked out was was in the box. 20 bucks is so cheap who cares if the box was empty. :wink:

If I were you, I would probably buy hundred. You can sell them for at least $70. I hope that you'll give us (the memebers of this forum) a discount :lol:

Add 100 for me :lol: 
laughing aside; it's very strange, they could be either stolen or something like... $20... I'd rush buy one and flip open the heat spreader to check there are two dies inside.

Even if refurbished, they're easily worth twice that. Still, I have a strong hunch this merchandise is hot.

I dunno. I remember walking into computer shows back in 97 and finding buckets full of DXII100s, PI 133s, etc for $5.00 a pop

Yes, but were those same CPUs available online for eight times the price (on Newegg for $159.00 right now)?

I'll check with them this Saturday and question the counter guy. I guess I could easily ebay them with a nice low starting bid price of $30-40.
January 22, 2007 3:20:58 PM

Maybe it's a typo. Here the Pent D930 costs 180 bucks. Maybe they meant 200? If not... Will you ship worldwide? :D

Haha, the joke is on me. I should have looked more closely the first time I saw those boxes. They're 19.95 alright, but there's no processor!!! The store is selling the hsf only!! What a rip!

In fact; it looked very odd, pretty outlandish to say the least!!!
BTW of dirt cheap CPUs, this is a bargain and is for real:

Well I think $20 is a bit high. Unless you need a space heater for your computer room.
If they could sell them for more on ebay, dont you think they would?
As usual, you read the title, then posted your crap. Start reading the other posts dumb*ss. :roll: Your post is moot.
