Can anyone reccomend a UK supplier for a PIV Northwood at a decent price? I'm using a Gigabyte GA-8SG667 mobo I have lying around to build a server, but the only PIV Northwoods I can find anywhere are over £100. I don't really want to spend that much if I can avoid doing so. Can anyone recccomend a supplier/retailer?

I've checked the supported CPU list and noted that some Celerons and Prescotts are supported, but I'd rather use a Northwood. Otherwise I guess a Celeron might have to suffice.

they went for about £80 each, if you need i can ask the bloke who was selling them to cut you a deal maybe?

Intel have stopped making the northwoods, so it is very hard to get hold of them. I didnt see a single northwood on any of the sites I usually get hardware from.
Think its gonna have to be ebay.

Read the FAQ then do this.
Ok, I must be missing something, becuase I don't see much in the FAQ, and the link is to a Prescott.
