I have a brand new AMD FX-53 processor, unopened, that was won at the E3 American Army tournament. Its the socket 940 one.
Where would be a good place to sell this? Is $600 a reasonable price? If you were to buy it, what price would entice you (this one's pretty good I think)? Also if you offer me something very nice (like an inflatable starship enterprise) I might consider selling it to you
Wow! It's already obsolete! The big push now is for socket 939 motherboards with dual-channel. The FX-53 is really just a re-badged Opteron server chip. I suppose I could scrape up $200.00 for it while the socket 940 boards are still in production!

That's the one someone mentioned in a post they were thinking of buying for $500, right? I believe they said it had no warranty. Why is that? Is it oem or something? It seemed like people pretty much talked him out of it. I think 940 boards are pretty high priced and then there is the ecc ram requirement issue. The chip would be a great deal at 3500+ prices I guess but the platform is very costly from what I understand. I am not even sure how one would go about "shopping" for a 940 board. I imagine there must be some reviews out there somewhere but since 940 is a server platform I haven't really looked for em.
Seems like one heck of a nice prize though. :smile:
I think I'll try Ebay. That sounds like the best bet. I just wondered if there was a popular commerce bulletin board where I could sell it without ebay's taxing on my profit. However, most ebayers will pay more than smart buggers like us on these BB's .
Does anybody check prices on Ebay's storefront? I just noticed it, and that looks like a nice place to sell something, but I want ot make sure people actually go there (whereas until today I always just checked the ebay auctions) to buy stuff.
Leave me feedback for whether or not you shop there at all.
