    Default where to find cheap server cpu's?

    I'm specifically looking for an lga2066 Xeon (not i9). We all know the usual means, epay, craigslist. I passed up one foolishly a few weeks ago. Was just fishing for tips as I know someone here must have the lowdown.

    XEONs only get cheap when the socket has been retired for a while and servers are taken offline to be replaced. That socket came out in 2017 so it is still current.
    What I collect: 68K/Early PPC Mac, DOS/Win 3.1 era machines, Amiga/ST, C64/128
    Nubus/ISA/VLB/MCA/EISA cards of all types
    Boxed apps and games for the above systems
    Analog video capture cards/software and complete systems

    I don't mean necessarily dirt cheap. Like maybe half the list price. You already see used ones on ebay, and a guy in Canada had a w-2123 iirc, only 4 cores but not the slowest model for about 150$. I should have bought it.

    If sellers are recyclers they may have off-eBay sites where other goodies are listed, not on eBay.
