    Got this at a recycling center:

    Paid $5 for it :rockout: It's missing the I/O panel though.

    I think I'm going to put together a "scraps" rig ;) I've got a 3.4 Prescott, an HD2600XT and a spare set of DDR500 RAM.

    Neat. A 521MB DDR3 2600XT.
    It's a shame the x2600x2 won't let the system boot when installed in a 4CoreDual-SATA2, otherwise my project would have been viable. :(
    It would have been awesome...oh well...

    Maybe a sound blaster live 5.1? I think that is about the right time frame.

    Very awesome looking nostalgic build bro!!! What is that Gigabyte card with the ram in it?

    It's an i-RAM.

    I think I'm going to forgo the sound card; I'll try to get a set of speakers with optical inputs instead.

    Maybe I should look for a sound card after all. Can't find a set of PC speakers with optical input.

    Wish I hadn't sold my Turtle Beach Montego. Maybe I could get an X-Fi Xtreme Gamer or something.

    Bought an IC7 MAX I/O plate, apparently it should fit the IC7-G fine. Log will be posted soon :toast:

    That i-RAM looks cool... why did they abandon that idea anyway?

    Thanks but I'll use the case that I had initially bought for my Phenom build.



    Maybe they didn't sell many? I recall an i-RAM 2 being developed for DDR2 RAM but it never saw the light of the day.

    I'd want to come across an i-RAM box though (same thing but in a 5.25 enclosure).

    i guess you dont understand the point: the purpose is to be a Ramdisk so, for loading a LiveCD system (in exemple) so basically it IS a kind of PCI "Volatile SSD" and since it was not comfortable, they developed SSD with non volatile and more capacity.

    btw SSD Solid State Drive : a Ramdisk composed of ram stick is a SSD, to the core definition you can even call a uSD card or any memory card usb key a SSD... that name is kinda too much generic,

    ok ok i know its not what people know ... but do they know right? maybe yes maybe no *Evil laugh* muhahahahahahahhahahahaaaaa:D

    so he has a point in it imo:toast:
