    It is an older pentium mobo. It is useless. Not even ebay will do
    good for me. Should I just throw it away or save it for parts? I
    don't know what parts on it I should get. Thanks for opinions.

    If you're a hobbyist and like used parts with short leads, you can
    strip it with a torch and a puller of some kind - wear safety goggles
    and a breath mask. Take the processor, get the chip out, and make a
    brooch for your lady. Be sure and get those .025 square pin headers -
    you never know when you'll need one. And connectors are always handy.
    Any socketed chips, of course, you just pull. At this age, I'd toss
    the battery.

    Have Fun!

    It's a geek thing. Solder a copper ring to some pins, fit a chain or keyring
    and look cool as shit.

    I'm saving my old mobos to show the grand-kids how primitive we were. ;)

    I use them to "canibalize" them for parts (mostly LowESR caps) for
    repairing other damaged MoBo´s ...
