I would be very interested in the Socket 939 Motherboard, as I am trying to get a "pet project" of mine off the ground; I have been toying with the idea for a while, but recently started putting it into action. I am collecting as many "unwanted" but still fully-functional PC parts or even whole PC's as possible and I am "recycling" them by building "refurbished" computers, nothing fancy just solid PC's that can run MS Office Suite and access the Internet, and donating ALL of them to a (the) local "Battered Women's Shelter", and after talking with the Director of the shelter a number of times (she is ecstatic about the idea, as they receive a pathetically small amount of funding
), the computers would initially be set up in the shelter for the women to use to be able to create resumes, search for jobs, etc; and then once the shelter has enough PC's, and if I am able to get a steady-enough income of parts, PC's will be donated to the women themselves as they leave the shelter so that they have the ability to find work, housing, etc in a world that has become incredibly internet-centric. I thought of this when I saw a "local computer shop" (I have mentioned this horrible, wretched, despicable place once before in a long rant, but if you want to read a seething rant about why I abhor this place, look for my posts in the "Hardware News" thread about the SSDNow! instant-cache-SSD, I believe it was) throwing away armfuls of stuff that had been given to them to RECYCLE, a "service" they charge $2/lb for! The thought of this mostly-still-very-usable equipment polluting the planet instead of being used to help people who could greatly benefit from this made me almost punch these jerkoffs in their greasy faces, especially after taking some ~60yr old lady's $28 to "recycle" the equipment!
Ever since, I have been collecting and working on this in my free time, but Motherboards are one of the absolute hardest things to come across. I have a number of Athlon64x2, Athlon II, and other AMD Skt939 CPU's that have no home, but are otherwise ready to go. So, I am not asking for it for my own use, but rather that I can donate it to one of the most worthy causes I can personally think of.
