I dont know where you did your maths but for me a 80$ motherboard is high paid for a used 775 but still cheaper then a rig that need memory, motherboard and some other stuff.
I maybe wrong but if can build me a full setup under 80$ youre my man !!!!
For me an upgrade the cheapest possible so I would like to get a 775 motherboard able to have a duo or quad on it and ddr2-800. I have all the rest of the setup and even really old it would be already an upgrade to me heheh

it has 1.66 gig 667fsb dualcore...
