    I upgraded my 400 mhz processor with a 1gig sonnet card(1 week before the G5 announcement(double doh!)). Any suggestions on what I should do with the 400 mhz processor card? It did such a great jov for me, seems such a shame for a nice card like that to collect dust.

    "door jam" and "paper weight" immediately spring to mind.

    i've got 2 sitting in a box at home.

    I just upgraded my 800mhz powermac to 1.4ghz, and I was about to toss the old processor in the bin of forgotten computer parts, when I decided to take a flyer selling it on eBay. It sold right away for my buy-it-now price of $150 (which probably means that my buy-it-now price was too low anyway).

    Moral of the story: List it on eBay. You have nothing to lose.

    Key point: I don't work for 'em...

    Anyway, otherworldcomputing.com has a sweet deal goin' where you can buy an upgrade card from 'em and then (within 90 days) send your old card back for a tasty refund. Just installed one of their 1.4GHz daughtercard upgrades -- love it -- and I'm looking forward to sending this old beast in. Meanwhile, my new GeForce Ti card came in today. If it works, I'm looking to sell my GeForce 4MX card. Anyone interested?

    Whoring for UT2K3,
