    Nice!

    I'm still hoping I can snag an Amstrad CPC-464 from somewhere on the cheap. We had one at home (well my brothers did) and it worked fine for a long time until my mother literally threw it out. And left it in the rain for a couple of weeks. I had a sad when I came home seeing that. :(

    Man, you should run to a local electrical store or computer shop to see if you can find some heat sinks and not destroy this ole system. Awesome old school stuff there man. Added you to the original post. :rockout::rockout::rockout:

    The CPU

    The mobo...I still need to grab some DDR1 ECC...I have some CE-5 that matches the chip number listed but it isn't ECC/REG'd, but I don't know if it is required...

    [​IMG]

    The CE-5 isn't listed as ECC...weirdness

    [​IMG]

    CE-5

    [​IMG]

    DDR1 collection 4x256mb (CE-5), 3x512mb (various), 2x256mb (geil ultra 2-3-3-6)

    It's definitely a PNY branded All-In-Wonder, but I can't figure out which particular model.

    It's subjective, not objective. Nostalgia is simply looking back fondly on something. If he has good memories of LGA775 system(s), then for him, it is nostalgic ;)

    Sure. :rockout:


    I totally agree RM! I personally would be more apt to call socket 478 as nostalgic but as RM pointed out, if someone had an awesome 775 system then sure. Heck, it is a few generations of Intel old. :toast:
