We have inherited an old PC as part of a piece of manufacturing equipment.  The PC is old and I wanted to purchase a spare motherboard and CPU to have on hand as replacement.  It is an ASUS P5P800 SE with Intel P4 3.2Ghz.  I have attached details of CPU.  I have spent a while trying to locate the motherboard on the internet.  Asus dont have in stock (in aus anyway).  Does someone know of a store which stock out of date equipment like this?

I suggest you look on ebay for things you can't get elsewhere. You'll often find 2nd hand stuff there.

eBay lists one of the ASUS P5P800 SE motherboards today but it says that the onboard LAN doesn't work right and it doesn't have a CPU.

Hi,

There is one in Canada with international shipping options:

Thanks you eveyone who responded, I wasnt so sure about purchasing second hand but looks like the only way to go, given the age of the items.  I will get one of the new Processors and hope to get the board from germany, just getting some extra details from the seller now.  I have split the points but given most to RobMobility as his information was very detailed and the items I ended up getting.
REgards,
