    Default u should consider buying something better.

    Goto http://www.pricewatch.com

    check out their prices on cpus, motherboards, etc.

    You could get a 1200gz T-bird for $222. Or the one with the better 266mhz bus for $239. Just buy one of those with a new mobo $100-175, and you have yourself a rockin' system.

    Or, you could buy a Asus A7V mobo for around $118, and add a 650 T-bird for $60. Or, a 750 for $76, 1000ghz for $169.

    Come on now, prices are sooo good right now. Why buy used? Unless the person selling is giving u a good deal. Just make sure you check around on www.pricewatch.com, or any of the sites they list for the price of that product new, then you can accurately judge whether or not the price is good.

    Is that a question or a request?

    If you're still looking... then did you check out www.pricewatch.com like I told ya? It's a street price search engine. I've used that site a ton to find most of the parts I have. Other stuff I've bought locally. Trust me dude, it's one of the best resources you can have for finding computer parts....enough said.

    Whats up with the super high price on that out dated cpu?? They want like $160-200 for that K-6 3+ 450. I thought it was a typo but other sites want the same price. Why dont you take guitaros advice and just chunk that old mobo and step up to a socket a mobo and get a Duron or T-Bird.

    Red face Because, it's the fastest SS7 cpu out there!!

    The reason for the price is it's no longer in production and there's a ton of Socket 7 boards out there. You can overclock the chip easily to 600mhz. That's pretty contemporary performance and some of the Socket 7 boards are very very stable.

    You can buy an Abit KT7a for $125, Duron 600 for $40, WBK32 heatsink for $25, and a 15k ohm .25w resistor to do the voltage mod for $1.50. That would give you a 1100mhz system for $191.50. Unlocking the Duron with a pencil and doing the voltage mod is real easy to do. If you didnt do the voltage mod you can still hit 900mhz with the Duron 600.

    Those are all good suggestions by you guys, but he didn't ask for TBird this or Pentium that. He wants a K63+ 450. As for checking Pricewatch, it is not a viable option. Only two vendors were selling it last I checked and the lowest was $159. Compare that to the $60 it was going for just a few weeks ago, that is why he is asking for a reasonable price. Word got out last fall about these superior Socket7 chips and after chirstmas the majority were all bought up. It has 256 on die cache and is easily overclockable to 600 mhz. The cache makes way better than the original K6-2 and 3. Not everybody has the money to go get a brand new MB and chip. There are po folk in the world and I imagine most of you telling him to get a TBird and such don't know about that because your daddy's buy you whatever you want.

    Anyhow Allans the best bet is to go to Ebay, it is the only plce where they can still be had at a reasonable price.

    Well for your info ViralCryption my dady hasnt bought anything for me in about 15 years. The way I see it is even if you are as you say "po folk" it would still make more sense to save up your money and step up to a newer mobo and cpu ( this is just my opinion ). We gave allans2k our ideas on were to locate a K-6 3+ 450 at the best price. We also gave allans2k our ideas on what we would do if we were in his position also. If he is set on buying a K-6 3+ 450 then thats great! There is nothing wrong with that, but maybe he didnt realize that the prices have came down on the newer stuff because he is only looking at the K-6 3+ 450 stuff right now.

    My sentiments exactly! I work for my computers parts, thankyou very much! If you haven't noticed, I sell or trade my "old stuff" (although not old by most people's standards), and use that money and other money I EARNED myself, and upgrade my system. I'm just more committed to quality than most people.

    Most people wouldn't go to www.ubid.com and spend $450 on a 21" Sony monitor (had it a year already). They'd instead stick with their 14" noname brand.

    They'd rather spend their money on other stuff. I for one don't like to waste my money on candy, fancy dinners, clothing (I wait for bday and christmas for clothing ). I instead save my money, and buy what I really want.

    I also know how to trade and barter. Whereas most people are too afraid. I recently traded a subwoofer, a dts/dd decoder, a vcr and cash for a Sony video projector. How many people do you know that own a video projector, little lone a big screen tv for that matter.

    So before you start generalizing everyone for buying quality over crap. You should get the facts straight bub! Besides, my parents are poor too. I'm poor for that matter. I just refuse to settle for crap!

    Hey now, I didn't say everybody, but a lot of people are that way. And if you hurting for funds liek you say, then you should know what I am talking about. I used to see it all the the time dorms, some guy would have some kick ass new system that his Dad paid a couple of thousands dollar for and he wouldn't do jack with it. Or screw it up and brag about how great his stuff his, though he doesn't even knwo what it is he is bragging about. I would see all the time and I see it a lot on the boards. I always some 16 year old guy who's parents just bought him a new Geforec Ultra for his birthday and bought him a Vood005 when it came out, but now a year later ah have the new stuff and not eben fully appreciate it. That is what I am talking about. I have asked people's opinion beofre about stuff and you always get some spoiled wis ass that reccomends something that is 3 times more than you said you could spend. Somebody I'll ask should I get the Geforce2 MX or the ATI radeon VE and soem yahoo always replies "Get the Geforce2 Ultra." The two aren't even close.

    As for the k6-3+ 450 not being quality, that is way off base. OC to 600 mhz and just a few weeks ago it was only $60, that is greta for a SS7. Some people just try to scrape a little bit together to extend the life of their system. I, for example, have a k6-2 300 that is getting to be dog ass slow and I wanted the k63+, but it costs way too much. Check out AMD Zone forums and you'll find a lot of people thta think the k63+ is by far the best chip for a Socket, which many people still own. Plus, some people, me included, get excited about tweaking a SS7 and making it the fastest out their. Putting the chip made for laptops into a desktop just seems exciting to me. Plus, it overclocks and my k62-300 won't OC for nothing.

    Guitaro, I think the tarding is great. I do all the time for car stereo stuff. I find car stereos to be like computers, there is alwasy a satisfaction of tweaking and getting new stuff even if it isn't better, just that it is something new to tinker with.

    I know what you're talking about. However, I do have to point out, that only a small percentage of students actually goto college. Also, the chances are greater that among the students attending college, a higher percentage have rich parents who spoil 'em.

    Another thing to consider, is that even if their parents aren't rich. Parents tend to want to support their students in school. So they go out and buy them a new computer. Hoping that it'll encourage them to do better in college.

    On the other hand, there are indeed plenty of spoiled punks who have nothing better to do then brag about their new hardware. Kids like that should be spanked.

    On a unrelated note, you say you went or are currently attending college? I don't want to sound harsh or critical, but did you ever consider proof-reading your posts? I noticed you made tons of mistakes. Were you really tired when you wrote it? I'm just curious and concerned. My sister and I were talking about how kids today don't always get the proper constructive criticism they need to improve. Especially when it comes to grammar and spelling. I'm not saying you're terrible. You just might wanna keep a dictionary handy and/or reread what you just typed.

    Anyways, some people are spoiled, and they suck! People who earn their own toys deserve more respect. Not to mention, they have a greater appreciation for what they already have. God loves it when we're grateful.

    They would be right. A K6-3 together with a Socket 7 motherboard with 2 MB of cache would indeed (To use a phrase a friend of mine made up last weekend) r0x0r my b0x0rz...

    This is all well and good, guys, but none of this is helping allans2k get his K6-3+...

    This eBay auction is dutch for 5 chips, and only two have been bidded on so far. Price is $91. It ends in 18 hours. Looks like it may be your best shot. Yahoo! Auctions doesn't have anything, nor does uBid, and I really don't trust too many other people out there. These auctions are consistently going for over a $100, but these are close enough to the mark where you may not have that problem. Good luck!

    Yeah I graduated with honors last May. The problem was that it was past midnight, I suck at typing (that is what secretaries are for), and I am usually too lazy to proof read informal writings. I know that might irritate some people, but I figure with a lot of global users my mistakes can blend in with non-native english speakers.
