I have an 840 lying around. Not sure if it actually works, but I'd mail it for free if I could find it.

EDIT: Found it. If you want I'd send it, if postage isn't too bad.

Sadly people must buy them for these high prices for them to always be listed that high.

Check your local listings for used ones. I sold my 965 for $60 after I upgraded to an 8350 just to get rid of it. There were a few others on there too like the 940.

computer components follow the U curve.

starts off expensive, goes down in price as demand goes down. supplies start to dry up and go back up in price.

or the price just falls off a cliff.

Damn, Phenom II. That brings me back five years. As another user mentioned, check craigslist or ebay. I just sold a Phenom II 965 rig a few months ago for about $450 out the door. If I had to part out the PC instead of selling it whole, I probably would have sold the CPU for $50-60.

That's why I always am opposed to skimping on the CPU for gaming builds. Even multiple years afterwards, it costs much to upgrade the CPU.

That's kinda what sucks with me. I have a 965, dont wanna upgrade my mobo because it would cost over $400 between a new mobo, CPU, and new windows. I'd almost consider an X6 if it were cheap enough and it were close to a holiday season where I could afford to put money out for it.

I just upgraded from a Phenom II 940 to Haswell about six months ago, talk about a night and day difference.
