Hey guys, I've got some extra hardware that is just sitting around. Prices are OBO, so make offers!

-Asus AN-8 SLI, Athlon 4200 X2, 2GB Crucial Value ram - Little setup I bought a while back to have some fun with, works perfectly. Looking for $45 OBO or $55 OBO with a Scythe Ninja cooler. I am willing to part this combo.




-Foxconn MCP73S01, Xeon E5420 - M-ITX 775 Foxconn motherboard that has been modded to accept 771 Xeon CPU's. The CPU is a 2.5GHz quad core Xeon. I bought this for a home theater build that I never finished. The board is brand new, it has only been powered on a handful of times. Looking for $60 OBO for the combo.


Want to breathe some life into that old LGA775 system you have? Don't want to spend the money on an expensive Core 2 Quad? Check out this simple mod to get the most out of your system with an LGA771 Xeon CPU

How does that Xeon compare to some of the newer CPUS? such as the Q9550? Or like a low level i5 or i7? I had a i5-750 which is not new or slow compare to the new CPUs. How would is compare to that ? I need something that would hold me off until I need up upgrade.

I haven't been able to run any benchmarks with the X5450, but according to Passmark and some tests I ran with an E5420 it should be equivalent to an i3 4340 and faster than a i5 750. I ran a lower clocked Xeon with my GTX 460 and saw almost identical scores in Valley to my 3.8GHz i7 960. Not sure it that answers your question, but the X5450 is still a very fast CPU, especially paired with DDR3.

Some quick questions - is the Foxconn MCP73S01, Xeon E5420 - M-ITX 775 still available? I don't see any pictures of it. Also does the motherboard come with I/O backplate?

AMD needs to publish a Business Manual called "How Not to Launch a Product: Learn from our Mistakes and Succeed!".
AMD probably wont tho, because that would be a guaranteed money maker.

It is still available, i just put up another picture of it. I don't have an I/O shield for it.
