Hi Fred,

My recommendation is throwing out the P3.  It's not worth $200 unless by
chance somebody wants it for the gold content, assuming there are gold
circuit boards.   My other recommendation is to come to 87544 and take one
of my Indy's.  They're not loud and they run R5000 or R5500 chips (I forget
what's in there).
