They want to stay with socket939 and max it out. That is why they are paying a huge premium on the FX60. Or so that's my theory.

I like the MSI board a lot. I paid only $115 for it at a local PCClub store ($10 cheaper than Newegg at the time). I really like the heatsink they placed on the board (I replaced the thermal pads with AS5 of course). And for the $$$ it's a great board, and it's a cool black color with the copper heastsink.

I have to admit I was a little supprised by what I got for my old stuff. BTW... those are exact numbers. I only rounded up to the nearest dollar. The only thing about ebay and PayPal are the fees that they charge. It was 15% of the total. I know I could of sold the stuff here, but there's no way I would have received as much.

Dammit... I knew I should have had theFX-60 auction end on a weekend verses a weekday(Thursday). Oh well... everything else ended on Saturday afternoon. When I first started my FX-60 auction, another one had just sold for $380. I was hoping, I would get the same. Oh well... I still made out pretty good.

I have bundled up all of my stuff, and from what similar or the same items were getting on ebay, I may be able to get around $600-$800, I never thought I could do this. I have 4 fully working super nintendos in my basement, and their fetching nearly $50 a peace.
