    I choose the Abit to replace my dying ASUS A7N8X, stuck with ABit till the stopped making motherboards. Always loved the orange color. Un fortunately, my 9800 non pro died, so i bought the 5950 ultra on ebay for 40 bucks several years ago, my friend killed my 2700+ (booted with out a heatsink lol) so he gave me his XP 2500-M and I no longer have the case I used (although thats the same PSU I have been using with it for 11 years). Wish I could find an Antec Plus 1080 AMG Silver.

    Better use zip-ties for better airflow. All these wires screw it up.

    Another cool site for vintage EPROMs.

    I bought some AMD gold EPROMs on eBay, waiting for the mail man to deliver them.

    I am thinking of making some necklaces out of them, maybe a ring depending on the actual size.

    Cool man. I had an old HP almost identical to that one. Purchased it brand new with Windows 98SE and about a year later the motherboard fried and took the hard drive with it. Ended up junking the whole system. :banghead:

    That's sad :(

    Still I'm having kinda problem to decide what I'll do with it, or what components I'll be getting to it. 256MB RAM and something GeForce 2-GeForce 4Ti class GPU maybe? :)

    And I'll still need to find that P3-800 if I'm still having it, and I'll just hope that the motherboard supports it. :D

    Probably depends on the front side buss of the chips. It should support an 800 though.

    Just put my hand on an original installation drivers Cd for Matrox Mystique gpu. The package to put the cd really good looking, driver cd, plus 4 games bundle on 3 cd with it. Scorched Planet (Full), Destruction Derby 2 (Full)+ Thunder Truck Rally(Demo) and MechWarrior2 31st century combat (Full) including the booklet for MechWarrior. All wearing the brand Matrox on it. Oh and also found a 3.5" disk with the game Arkanoid. :)

    I guess it works with P3 800E, since I found out that models with 933 and 1GHz P3:s are also exist. Well, gotta find that CPU and have to get the RAM and some GPU ;)

    Hi! I'm from the Internet
    I have a sb audigy platnium and a nf7-s. I think the onboard soundstorm is tons better. Truly great for it's time.

    Yes, sound storm was amazing for its time. But it only functioned through digital, Analog output was still controlled by the ALC662 AC'97. The NF-7S was a replacement board to my A7N8X )non delux so no soundstorm) and I have had that audigy since 2001 since I had analog surround and my old 1.3Ghz t-Bird motherboard did not have integrated surround.

    I'm thinking of getting a A7V600-X for my new Athlon XP 3200+.
    I've also got 1GB of RAM.
    What do you think,is it worth installing the following systems on those HDDs?Also,which one should be the primary,secondary HDD from those 3?

    HDDs:
    1.Seagate ST310211A 10GB - Windows 7 Lite "Cocos"
    2.WD Protege 8GB - Android 4.4 x86 "Kitkat"
    3.WD "Caviar SE" 80GB (SATA I and II at the same time,and it's the original drive,not the Blue version which is SATA II only) - Linux OS,I leave you name one so I can get it.

    At least,I learned my lesson to never get Soltek again.Last time (3 days ago,Sunday)I got a SL-75FRN2-RL (which has nForce 2 Ultra chipset and SATA controller)and it won't POST.
    Thank god that the A7V600-X has also SATA ports.Anybody know what SATA controller it uses?
