Cost of Old-School Motherboards?

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
Just for kicks I was just looking on eBay for some of the hardware I used to have back in the day. I thought it would be kind of neat to spend a few bucks and build an homage to a rig from yesteryear. The boards are there but definitely not for a few bucks!

What I found:

Abit IP35 Pro: $60-90
Asus P5B Deluxe: $70-100
Asus P6T Deluxe: $230 bigeyedsmiley.png
Asus P5N32E-SLI (Nvidia 680i): $13

But how could $13 be too expensive? Anyone who owned one or its more expensive brother, the Striker will be able to vouch for me. biggrin.gif

So what gives? I understand the X58 board is still a viable option but my goodness that's getting close to what I paid for it new when 1366 was released. Is there really that much of a demand for this old hardware?

Not a demand, more like a shortage. Not really worth it unless you really want to buy nostalgia.

Do people still use them for anything?

EDIT: in the context you could get something much more powerful, efficient today for less.

I have to agree x58 boards are wayyy overpriced at the moment.For the price of a good x58 setup,I could get a mid-high Haswell setup thumbsdownsmileyanim.gif
High prices are largely due to ebay greed. rolleyes.gif

The reason older computer parts rise in price is because of supply and demand, the demand is especially high when the product isn't made anymore and is needed. Many people will look to replace an older motherboard in a failing system, however they can't find it in a store, or a viable replacement, so they go on eBay and are willing to dish out a lot for it, rather than dish out for a totally new system. Also benchers, some look to increase their points on hwbot by benching older systems that others don't and grabing up a lot of those points, but those guys usually just want 1 model or two.

It's cool to see this thread and I do the same thing.

I've already built my "first" overclocking pc...just for the memories. Abit KT7A, Duron 700, Crucual pc133 256MB and GlobalWin CAK38.

Some of the prices are insane but once in a while you can find a good deal. recently I've been looking for Abit NF7-S and DFI Infinity (man those were the days) thumb.gif

Yeah for sure man...those were the days! Back when the DFI LanParty was a heavy hitter and MSI boards looked like candy throwup. sigh redface.gif

What a shame Abit didn't survive. The IP35 Pro I had was one of the best, most reliable, bang-for-the-buck boards I've ever owned. Rivaled only by a freakishly reliable Sabertooth Z77/3750K combo I had up until a month ago.

Here's where it all started for me:



nForce 4 baby!

Maybe I should rebuild my first system. What are the odds of finding an unmolested Antec 900 (grey interior)? My guess is about the same is bumping into aliens on my way to work tomorrow morning. biggrin.gif

Why isn't Ebay cheap for motherboards but is cheap for CPUs?
