    Not sure what the price of amd is lately, and i came across a cpu for a motherboard i have. Its an AMD Athlon II X2 250 Regor. The seller wants $40. Is this worth the buy? TY :D

    NewEgg's got em for $54.99 (new OEM)- offer him $30 (or $40 if you feel it's fair)

    If it's used I would ask for about $30.

    I'll have to agree, especially after adding in the drive time and cost (with current gas prices).

    I haven't listed it yet in my for sale thread, but I have a Phenom II 555BE that completely unlocks to a full quad core chip that I would work a deal.

    Was going to put it up as a combo with a motherboard, ram, and cooler but if we can work something out I would be willing to part with the processor.

    Shoot me a PM if your interested.
