The combination motherboard, case and floppy looks like a good deal for approx. $60. It will support up to a 533 Celeron.Pricewatch has the 533 for around $47.00 plus shipping. Anybody familiar with this motherboard?

Possibly the worst subject line I've ever seen...

what's wrong with the subject line?
johnnymk is talking about the following deals:
ATX formfactor: ECS P6SEP-ME Mobo with integrated Audio and Video, 1.44 drive, case, and power supply for $60.47 (only 88 remaining). (http://click.linksynergy.com/fs-bin/click?id=9eASk0x48lo&subid=1&offerid=28707.1&type=10&tmpid=423&RD_PARM1=http%253A%252F%252Fwww.us.buy.com%252F&RD_PARM2=retail%252Fclearance%252Fproduct.asp%253Fsku%253D70002147%2526loc%253D13930)
AT formfactor: On Speed U-631 Mobo with integrated Audio, Video, and 56k Modem, 1.44 drive, case, and power supply for $60.47 (only 279 remaining).

Isn't amazing that a guy who never submitted a deal is so critical about a subject line on a deals page!
Oh well, there are the people who DO and the people who CRITICIZE. I see it at work everyday

I stand by my statement. A good subject line would say something like "Great deal on Motherboard at Buy.com". Yours is ambiguous at best, leading people to click on the the link only to find out that it's not what they want. We could all be more efficient in our deal hunting if the subject lines told the stories better. So, please, keep hunting and posting, we're all better off for it. But be more specific in your subject lines.

I will bet that you're the kind of guy who is too lazy to use your turn signal when making a turn .
Since when do we owe you an efficient shopping experience?
You can redeem yourself. Post at least one deal and make us all happy!

I have a celery 533 ppga... thats just laying around....
i need a new computer anyhow (don't REALLY need it.. but you know how it is)...
i have a case n' stuff already.. i was wondierng.... would you guys recommend buying this package??
or would it be more cost-effective to buy myself just a new MOBO?
if so.. what MOBO's do u guys suggest for a 533 celery.. it will probably have 96 megs of ram... and a 10 giger western digital....
no need for modem... or sound card....

stupidzbu, without actually trying it myself I can say that deals like these are generally good. The hardware is a little out of date, and that is why they discount them so much... the manufacturer made their money on these products, and is now just trying to clear their inventory.
You say you have a case already, well then maybe you only need a motherboard... There are many discounted motherboards out there. Tekram for one sells direct with hughe discounts on older technolody (sometimes anyway). I just looked and they have a board that is built for Cel's for $45.
Now if you are looking for a decent motherboard that will suit that chip, boards built on the Intel 810 are pretty rock solid and very inexpensive.

The last time I checked, Buy.com had just the motherboard for apprx. $30.00

Based on your subject line, I'd bet that you hit the right turn signal when making a left...
