    My motherboard (Epox 8RGA+) and CPU (2500+ unlocked)

    Hey guys, I was just wondering what these were worth:

    The motherboard is an Epox 8RGA+, nForce2 IGP + MCP-T.
    http://www.epox.com/USA/product.asp?id=EP-8RGAplus

    It has full OCing options, and voltages are as follows:
    Vcore to 2.3v, Vdimm to 2.9v, and Vdd to 2.0v.

    It was originally $100 last July (when I bought it). It has no permanent mods (only a 50mm fan taped to the northbridge, which can be pulled off), so the warranty is still valid for one more year from July.

    The CPU is a retail AThlon XP 2500+ (it still has the original heatsink intact, so it has warranty), AXQEA 0323, which means its unlocked. I ran it at 11x185 for a while with integrated graphics, which limit the FSB. I recently got a Radeon 9800 pro, and have not had a chance to OC that much. I do not think it is stable at 11x200 at 1.75 (or 1.725) Vcore with stock Vdd and 2.9v memory. I did not try higher than that.

    The memory used was 2x256MB Buffalo PC3700 with Winbond BH-5 chips @ 11-2-2-2, and the heatsink was an SLK-800A.

    I just don't want to try more volts (havent had time to experiment a lot with it).

    The reason I was thinking to sell/trade these is because I want a DFI infinity to take advantage of my RAM. I may also get a mobile Athlon XP 2400+ (barton).

    Thanks in advance for any advice/info.

    EDIT: 8RGA+ is priced at $106 + shipping here: http://www.epox.com/USA/product.asp?id=EP-8RGAplus it was the only store which still carries it.

    A Retail (locked) 2500+ is $80 shipped at Newegg.

    Mine is unlocked. I was just providing the current going rate for a reference. However, the current ones are locked (unlocked retail ones are unavailabe for purchase AFAIK).
