    If you can trust the person selling the item, Ebay is a great option for you to look into.

    I have a B&W that I upgraded to a G4 500 earlier this year. It is a great stable system, with great power for most applications I use. I bought the processor on Ebay for less then $100 used.

    Have fun with the upgrades!
