    Is this worth anything?

    I was dismantling some old pc that was left in a new house a few years ago and found this:













    Is it worth any money or anything, or isit something i should just throw in the bin?


    Thanks

    There's a chance a collector would have it off you.
    You could try ebay or http://www.cpu-world.com/forum/

    Re: Is this worth anything?

    Give it to someone via Freecycle. Postage costs would be greater than the value of it, but whether someone would pay more than the value of it on eBay depends on the whether it is a full moon and whether it's in alignment with whichever stars.

    Not just collectors, there's a few major infrestructure system that still rely on older tech and as these chip are no longer made fleabay has actually become a major source for spares.

    I remember a couple of year back, before all the tube major upgrade work started, london underground had people scouring fleabay for old cpu's to keep the network running (I think they were looking for the old 586's)

    howmuch you could get for it? no idea, have a look for past PII 350mhz to see.

    You are correct.

    I've got a Gateway G6-266 sitting next to me with the 266MHz version of that inside it. Imagine how much it could be worth.
