Sell or Scrap Socket AM2 / 939 / 754 CPU's..?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Seems like the older "LE" series processors actually sell for decent money on ebay. I have like 9 or 10 of 'em sitting around. Problem is, I don't know how to actually identify/price them. I figured it would be faster to just scrap them, but of course I'll get less. ALL are Semprons. 

 

I guess I have the same question for 754 socket as well as... 939 was it? I have a bunch of those as well and I'm figuring they're probably worth scrapping. Any experience with offloading CPU's from these sockets?

 

Then again, upon further inspection, even 754 and 939 are selling for decent prices, which I did NOT expect. Maybe worth it to just sell? Anyone happen to want 'em?

 

Thanks so much for your help! :)

Socket 754 would be worth more than 939, to my knowledge.

 

A matched pair of decently speedy Athlon MPs can fetch around $50 on Ebay.

 

The hardware value graph looks something a bit like this: \___/

Over time, value will go down and stabilize fairly low. As time continues to go on, hardware value increases as the hardware gets older. Motherboards are where most of the money is in old platforms, people are willing to pay for a retro motherboard that works.

939 wasnt very rare. It was out two years before AM2 and was king back in the day. Almost everyone on various tech forums back then was rocking 939 builds.

 

And then AM2 came out and was like a 5% upgrade so people were sticking with 939 or if they did need an upgrade they went with intel since conroe was such a good release.

 

I mean its been a long time but I honestly cant remember anyone going am2 back in 2006/2007. Iirc it was about as well received as vista at that time.

 

And how well something performed has nothing to do with its value years later.

 

EDIT: actually with a quick search it seems socket 754 was barely out a year before 939 came around.

That's my bad then, I was confusing 754 with 462.

 

Either way, they're from around the same time and 754 is still older.
