MV-III CPU vs RD53 drives

A KA650 + memory is worth about $50 bucks on ebay... A graphics board
(M7168?) is worth between $1 and $10, and the graphics memory boards
(M7169?) are about the same.

A BA123 is worth next to nothing because of the expense involved in
shipping it. Used RD53s are worth about $5, new ones between $20
and $100 depending on how bad the buyer needs one... A dead RD53 is
worth abouth 10 cents a pound. A TK50 is worth $10.

So, If I was making the trade from your perspective, give him the
BA123 and all the RD53s he can haul away, and be happy. Maybe a
TK50 also, but only if he begs...

If I was making the trade from his perspective, I'd hope someone
would stop me from doing something so foolish... To each his own...


PS These prices are based on what I would pay given the opportunity.
Your mileage may vary...
