I got lucky and found a E2220 for $40 SHIPPED a few weeks back, I've been keeping an eye on your RFD thread and all I got when I was looking were the same type of offers you were getting, asking too much and wanting to charge shipping. All the offers in my price range were old P4/PentiumD LGA775 cpus and that's not what I wanted, lol.
But check your pm, I just found something that might be worth looking at for you.
