Where can I purchase an Intel i7 1366 CPU for under $100?

I need to replace this CPU on a desktop computer.

I'm looking to replace it for under $100.

I have looked on eBay and Craigslist and have only been able to find late model Intel i7 1366 CPU's starting at $170.

What other intent websites can I look at so that I can I purchase an Intel i7 1366 CPU for under $100?

It's an i7 mate... I doubt you will ever find one under $100 unless you come across someone who is changing from an i7 1366 to a new AMD Fusion CPU or an 1155 i7 extreme or something, in which case you will only get it 2nd hand.
Stick to eBay and other IT hardware forums where people sell stuff... you might get lucky.

Even the used market for i7's is still above $100 ... the answer to your question is either (a) you can't find them for that price;  or (b) have patience -- in about a year or so they'll probably be available in that price range :-)

... You MAY get lucky in an auction site like e-bay or Craig's list ... occasionally an item will sell for well under it's "usual" range -- but I'd consider that relatively unlikely.
