Miguel if you order a FX you might get one for rock bottom prices i would check ebay too

I saw a FX4100 for $50 Bucks if you can squeeze a little more coin even sell that spare Athlon you might be able to get one too

Miguel if you could work this then this would be your best bet

Sabertooth would be great but if you want a decent board 990fx i found one not the best VRMS but a lot better then what you are sporting

Oh yea almost forgot about that thing, still have it in a box. Never sold anything on ebay before though so I would have to figure that out. I'm guessing I could get maybe 50$ for it or more since I see newegg don't have those anymore so harder to find and amazon sell them for 95$ used.

If you want it sold fast take it down to 85.00 give free shipping most it should cost is 5.32 postage on Ebay 2 day Priority mail

Most people will jump on it but lowest price should be 80.00 bucks tops to many people on ebay want Rock bottom Prices just crazy

Oh ok, think i'm going to put it up for 90 and if it takes too long ill'l lower to 85. Just need to clean the chip from paste on the top. What's a cheap and easy way to do that? I was thinking maybe using some cotton swabs so I can go down to a local store and get some.

Serious use some Alcohol and Toilet paper just keep away from the pins and it will be good as new

Don't worry about static shock if you are wearing rubber shoes you are good to go
