    BTW, don't we need a TPU Scavanger club or something? :laugh:

    I do not own that card any longer, but I kept the box. I remember my sister saying "nice box" when she saw it, lol (a few years back when I had recently bought the card).

    Some people's internet connections do not handle pictures that large well enough.

    I mentioned I had it out and booted in another thread, so I thought I'd post it here.

    Here is my first PC; Amstrad PC1640 HD20.

    P.S. Not sure why there is white paint or liquid paper on it....

    thought id add some of the older stuff i had hanging around

    A Geforce 4 mx440 se 128mb AGP 8x i clocked the crap outta this card and it still works to this day (well it did when i put it away)

    A 9600 GSO with 768mb mem works fine, fans dead needs new fan/aftermarket cooler
    A 9600 GT 512mb works fine, fans vibrates, could do with a new cooler.

    both cards clock well and would still be using them if it wernt for the minor niggles of the fans breaking

    Hi! I'm from the Internet
    bring on the big pics. :toast: That or just use image resizer and resize them.


    Also guys, I have 4 days off of work. So I think I am going to use these days for something very constructive. I am going to put together another nostalgia rig. I will then put all three of my old rigs together for a nice photo shoot. It will be 3 Amd systems. Once I find my other mobo I will do a forth and have all the "generations" (I use the term generations loosely here) of Amd systems I have owned in running rigs. This will span from a K62 up to the Fx 8350 in my main rig now. This is going to be a sight once completed.

    Just got done swapping the 60 meg drive of this with a 120 meg one from the 2nd P70, which needs the floppy drive replaced (or fixed, haven't looked into it much).

    Full 20 MHz 386 DX, 12 MB ram (4 onboard, 8 on the 32-bit MCA card), orange VGA gas-plasma display, 1.44 meg floppy, 1200 baud modem.

    I think I'll remake my green tea build. I came across a shop that does powder coating and I want to try it out.

    BTW, can plastic be powder coated too?
