Yep, those CPU's are expensive, a Core 2 Duo X6800 will probably cost the same (probably already does), despite the fact you can get better for less, and probably not even have to change the motherboard. It's just a rare item, and there's a market for that.

I actually bought a second hand Pentium 4 Northwood Skt 478, 3.0 Ghz with 30 Caps (the same they use for the extreme edition) back in early 2006 and it was comparatively expensive when you consider the Conroes that came out in the summer of that year.

Actually, people value these CPU's a lot more than older CPU's like the Cyrix 5x86. I got a few of them in the past years and actually got one working inside my second computer (originally an AMD 486SX2 66Mhz). And I bought them cheap. I even bought a Pentium Overdrive 83Mhz still sealed inside the box with shrink-wrap and all for very little money.

It just seems that the current generation of computer users:

1. doesn't know these older CPU's exist. And they are as rare as the P4 EE;

2. They in all likelihood actually want to use the P4's and such, hence the high price. I'm curious if a P4 EE will still command a high price in a few years, when they are no longer considered as usable.

I went and bought a 3.2Ghz Extreme Edition
SL7AA
3.2 EE GHz
800MHz FSB!!!
512KB L2 Cache Extreme Edition CPU !!!
2MB L3 Cache
mPGA-478B (Socket 478) form factor

For $100 . The 3.4Ghz was for $180 and not worth it IMO, when I can overclock it easily 200Mhz . Anyways I hope to be able to hit 4ghz with this.
Sry for not listening to those above who said it's not that great idea.

Since the last time I posted on this thread, I actually also got back into the P4 business and bought a P4 3.4 Ghz Northwood to replace the 3 Ghz. It was comparatively cheap, for around $38, but then again, it's not the Extreme Edition.

You did a good deal, well comparatively speaking, of course. I made a few searches over the past months and that 3.2 Ghz is sold for that amount, in more than one currency. The 3.4 Ghz normally goes for twice as much like you said.

The extra 2MB of cache will definitely help maximize the true potential of these chips nowadays.
