They can be had for $25. They are useful for adding an extra slot or two to an already existing rig/computer. If you build a rig from scratch, just buy a motherboard with as many slots as you need, that is cheaper.

Yeah, I'd rather put that money towards a new/better motherboard. Seems like a waste to me.
