just looking for links because i want to eventually go back to them and start buying, i want to eventually get atleast 1 od each model generation for example if we went by this gen 1 celeron, 1 pentium, 1 i3, 1 i5, 1 i7, 1 i7ee, and 1 xeon

once i get a good collection going i want to take hi res shots of the bottom of each cpu to compare changes and what components moved where and etc... its always intrigued me ^^
