But to me, paying $300 (and that's with 4 days left, it could top $600) for the chip already negates the point of buying it in the first place, a cheap highly overclockable processor... This late in the game, my next processor would be dual/multi core anyway.

I dropped the money on the opty, came home ordered a motherboard and well, its been good since then.

opty plus the mobo cost me $285.
I sold my p4 and board for $305

So it was a good move without any loss of cash.

Can you call the local store and see if they have any more? If its a local store and they still have some, they should be able to check the stepping for you because they have them right there. If it's a good stepping, you could buy it and send it to me and ill pay you extra!
