Ernst, you are not the only person to collect cpus (even I do) but nice list of sites here:

http://www.cpu-world.com/links/


Including chips as "art" here:

I have some old quartz windows EPROMs which are nice to look at with a microscope, but quite regular as all the memory locations are the same logic.

Did you know there are sometimes little logos, designer initials or pictures etched as part of the die design? eg My Texas Instruments eprom has in the corner a miniture outline of the state of Texas. This kind of thing is quite common.
