I'd be rather happy to get $125 + shipping for the ones I have!!! Guess I need to take pics, and get them listed.

I've had items on my watch list from that particular seller, and it seems that when they have multiple items available on a specific listing, they increase the price when they get down to the last item.

Take a look at their listings and you will see a number of items for $999.95 that previously sold at significantly lower prices, such as ..
NEW TOSHIBA 1TB 7.2K 3.5" SATA HDD MK1002TSKB (NO TRAY) .. asking $999.95, sold at $39.95 or less.
NEW IN BOX DELL POWEREDGE R510 R515 SLIDING READY RAIL KIT D20YT .. $999.95, sold at $54.95 or less.

May be some automated ebay software that does it even! I've seen some amazon software do that crazy auto-price increase against other bots.

This is just one example ( yea, the most extreme) and there are plenty more.

SUPERMICRO 5500 / 5600 LGA1366 SERVER BOARD MOTHERBOARD X8DTH-IF X8DTH-IF-BM003 | eBay
I bought 4 from that same listing over a year ago when they were $150 each. That is a great board if you don't need PCIe 3.0 - it has 7 slots, all 8x in a 16x physical. I really like that because it lets me install cards in the slots for optimal airflow, rather than placement being dictated by the slot form factor.

That listing hasn't sold anything in 3.5 months, so a "make offer" might be indicated if you need one.

I picked up one about a year ago for $200...though it also came with a CSE-836, rails, cpu, ram, some hba's, and more.
