Where do you buy a single core P4 for $200? I want one so that I can make a super computing keychain.

Why would a Single Core be $200 still? I don't understand that for that price I would go to Micro Center and get an i5 3570k

If you have two car engines, just because one rev's higher, doesn't mean its the quickest when put in the car. Gearbox, power output per rev etc is the easiest way to point out there will be a difference

My Pentium 2 out performs the P4 in many situations, It doesn't even bottleneck a GTX Titan too! 120FPS in Crysis 3

Update: One of the DDR sticks crapped out. I told him to pay for the replacement since I have no interest in paying $40 for an old stick.
