Not only is that brilliant, but masterfully put together. You never cease to amaze me, Backfire.
Did a little job today. I got a GF4 MX420 from my uncle and damn that heatsink was like glued on it! Well, AtiTool's artifact scanner for 30min and when the card got enough heat, I finally managed to pop that heatsink out... And guess what? The TIM was that stupid classic bubblegum-like stuff And the weirdest thing was that in the chip was text "MX440-SE"
Well, took the most bubblegum out with sandpaper and wiped the heatsink too to a little better shape and put some GC-Extreme to it. Some day I must try OC that piece of crap.
My Slot A: 1.0GHz, Rage Fury Maxx, Voodoo 2 SLI, Terratec EWS64 XL
Mine is a 800 mhz proc with a Rage Fury pro and a Aureal Vortex 2 SQ2500.
Gotta love that Backfire's setup..
Voodoo2 SLI? Well I guess I will put a photo of my "not in #1PC" graphics cards in a moment
Ronnie James Dio don't need that cooler casue he's born in hell!
Sorry for a double post but this needs its own IMO

Sorry for (again) a double post...
Gonna get Nokia N8 and E6 prototype for 50€
Hi guys and girls.
I decided to jump on the deal a friend made to me a one month old motherboard for 30$ and rebuild myself a setup.
Mobo : G31M-GS R2.0 (30$)
CPU : 6300 SL9SA 1.86gig/2M/1066FSB (Going on overclock at least 2.5gigs) (Junk)
CPU cooler : CoolerMaster Vortex 752 (15$)
Memory : (4gigs) 2gigs Kingston KVR800D2N5/2G + 2gigs Transcend JM800QLU-2G (Junk)
Graphic : Asus EN9800GT HB/HTDI/512M/A (Junk)
Optical : DVD-RW LG GH22NS70 (Sata2) (35$ back in time)
Hard disk : Samsung Spinpoint SP2504C (Sata2) (Junk)
Power supply : Enermax NoiseTaker 2 EG495P-VE (2$..yeah you've read right!)
Case : Aerocool Qx-2000 (120$ back in time and used it in many setup already)
Will probably add a 3.5" cards reader and use it for Office, Youtube, Facebook, Downloading, Battlefield 2 multiplayer. Maybe time to open my nib Arkham asylum to try it.
Total cost of the setup 47$. Junk parts are parts i got from people who don't want anymore, municipal ecologic recycling depot and even on roadside the day of garbage.
JunkBear: Damn what a sweet set!
too bad none of them are still owned tsk tsk
also i really need to find a SIS 6326 3D Pro AGP (i think i saw one pretty affordable on Ebay ... ) that was my 1st AGP card... i had it in a K6-2 build (1st self assembled one ) i still have the Heatsink of it ... tho xD
oh well i need a G31 mobo for my spare 6300 or ... to use the 6700 2.66(1$) that replaced my 6300 1.86 i had in my DC7700p(free) with 4gb DDR800 Corsair XMS2 (free) ... hu... i love the DC7700p for internet/video/and retro XP gaming ... (ok the R7-240 is a bit too much... ) ... man i wan't a Wolfdale CPU back .... too much Conroe in my collection ...
My first own computer was a casio palmtop pc with windows CE.
I ordered a modem for it and I could use the internet (dial up).
After that I had a laptop from packard (hell)bell with 2Ghz celeron, no wifi and cam in it at that time.
Amazingly I could play GTA Vice City on that laptop! The laptop had soon overheating issues, I used it a lot for 3d rendering and that was just too much for that laptop, I replaced the celeron 2Ghz processor once for a used P4 1.8Ghz, short after that I sold it.
After that I bought a normal pc, Acer Aspire,
(something like this but then with Pentium 4 630)
had it several years, upgraded graphics card and later on I had build my own system with Lian Li case, I was happy with it.
Later on I bought an Asus laptop, and just recently I bought this Asus ROG laptop, I'm happy with it
My dad still uses my pc which has a cpu e7200, gpu HD 4870, 4gb geil ram , windows vista.
Another try with the digicam. It's not really as easy as it seems. When you want a clean white background, the cards always look somehow artificial. Maybe I'll test some other lighting later and the pics get better.
As I see in this moment, 1 chip of the Diamond Monster seems broken, but its only dust .
From what year are those cards? Are they the competition of the ati 9800 cards?
These cards are afair from 1997. They are years older than the Radeon 9800. Also they are just 3D-accelerators, you need another (2D) graphics-adapter to make them run. The Voodoo Graphics-Chipset was the first way to have (for the time they were on the market) performant 3D-graphics on the PC.
The original Voodoo Graphics was introduced in October 1996. That was around the same time that ATI introduced the Rage II.
Radeon 9800 was introduced in March 2003.
The other player in 3D graphics chips at the time of the early Voodoo cards was 3DLabs. Their first Permedia chips were out at around the same time, but I don't yet have an exact date for them. Permedia 2 was launched around summer 1997.
My precious RFM's and the only Permedia 2 I got.
found this in my dad's old boxes
