Picked up a 9700K $100. BUT Only functions when RAM is in 2nd and 3rd slot so single channel RAM. (Delid gone wrong) I knew this info prior to purchasing, still think it's decent.

Picked up a pair of USG-Pro-4 for $225 from local business that got bought and forced onto sonicwall by the new owners.

Resold on the bay for 215/ea after testing and factory resetting them.

Saw a neighbor throwing out a computer which I helped myself to it for free.

It contained:

-Intel i7-970 (6 core/12 threads)
-ASUS X58 Rampage III black edition with the Audio/Lan card.
-(4x6GB) 24GB G.Skill DDR3-1600
-Corsair HX1050
-Generic steel case with acrylic side panel from the late 90s.

Lucky enough, I have two set of un-used Corsair HX-1050 module cables.

I only got it to POST so far but haven't tested it out yet.

Thanks I got lucky, there was a dude on FB marketplace I was talking to about shipping a p400 from LA for $80, but with this one dropping in my lap it was a steal (he was asking 75 I offered $60 and he accepted).
Up and running in my plex docker now, I just have to figure out how to do the unlimited stream patch ~ though I dont think I've ever had more than a 2 stream load anyway so I might just leave it as is.

With a quadro cards I don't think there's a nvidia artificial limitation. GTX/RTX cards you have to use patch. I'm new Plex just getting ready to build a server.

If someone is throwing those Klipsch Promedia away, they probably are trashed. Blown amp probably and not worth fixing. Still, if I saw those in the alley I would pick them up and try to see if any of it was salvageable. I bought my current set in 2000 and still rocking, but I did have to replace the amp after a full house surge about 10 years ago.

Costco has a new set on sale right now for $100. Pretty sure I paid $400ish for mine about 20 years ago (but that was also the 4.1 set which they don't sell anymore)
