My guess is that there are not that many out there, and retailers have
long ago ran out of stock.  I am sure I can find a much nicer CPU from
a gen or two ago cheaper, but that won't fit the mobo.  Maybe I should
be looking at the 3200 route or just give up, and realize this is the
best performance (or near best) performance I will get out of my mobo.
