WANTED boards for Onyx2

Unread postby opcode » Sat Sep 09, 2017 3:39 pm

I would like to upgrade my Onyx2 to quad 500mhz. What kind of price am I looking at? How much does IR4 graphics usually go for? I have no idea what these boards are worth.

Thanks in advance!

it's how to find them....

There is a dual R14K 500MHz node board selling on eBay for $349:

The same seller also has an RM11 for sale for $690:

He is however negotiable on his prices, so you will probably be able to get them off him for less.

In the future I also want to upgrade my Onyx 2 to an IR4 setup with two RM11's, but at this point in time, my hands are rather full due to other commitments.
