[QUOTE=pilgrim7993;2708862]Thanks, Kenshin. I’ve pretty well got my mind made up about what I want. Now to try and find it. I believe that S Korea may be a good place to look. I was there in 1950 and 1951, but I saw no CPUs at that time.[/QUOTE]
South Korea probably had a few computers when I was born in the early 1970s. I sold a few (used but hardly used) Q35 and 41/61 motherboards for US$20 on average during the recent few weeks and I found compatible dual-core Celeron processors often available at US$3 or US$4 on used markets.
In South Korea, some used DDR 2 modules are cheap, but the price of two 512MB modules is lower than that of one 1GB module and the price of four 512MB modules is about half as that of one 2GB module.
