    Or The Full Topic "Pretend you don't know me a second, then read this then tell me if I am nuts"

    I am gonna trade my old Athlon 600 and Asus K7M for 2 IDE cables and a floppy disk cable!

    The three cables would normally retail for about £25 over here in the UK and are the funky coolermaster variety...

    They do look lovely and they are for a good mate of mine....
    Dunno what to do as I don't know the retail on a second hand mobo and processor that don't erm, retail anymore!?!?

    Oh...sorry. I voted before I read the question you posed. I shoudn't answer based purely on the subject line. The answer is still "yup" :p

    Hmm, ok then.
    Consider this, same scenario, but is my sane mate Bob or Jimmy, lets say Jimmy.
    And what you say this old mobo and processor rig cost?

    Hee Hee.....ive got an athlon 750 and K7M lying next to me gathering dust...and to think this was the mother of all systems when i got it!!!

    No you're not nuts,....nuts is when you keep it indefinitely in the vain hope that some mug will offer to pay you anything remotely close to what you originally bought it for!!

    Needless to say I'm giving mine to a good home.....

    Am I nuts.

    There, There, EP, so much jealousy all around you. Don`t take any notice of these very ignorant people.
    Now, come back to your lovely padded room, and I will remotely untie your Straight jacket. Thats a good boy. Nightey, nightey.
    :D :D :D
