Y2K card, nice find. Fairly rare.
Another card I found at ebay > http://www.ebay.de/itm/ATI-ATI-Atlantis-RADEON-9000-Grafikkarte-/221402875593?_trksid=p2047675.l2557&ssPageName=STRK:MEWNX:IT&nma=true&si=nVLHgZYrS%2BsWpTMq%2Fhodp4nStX8%3D&orig_cvip=true&rt=nc
It sure is not a 9000, its a Sapphire 9500/ 128MB. This is the one with the l-shaped RAM which can be modded into a 9700. 1.99Euros w/no shipping costs.
Yeah, I remember Amiga 500+ with RTC and others, my A600 memory expansion too.
Battery leak = 80% chance for motherboard dead.
The Kt7A is alive and well.
Sealed retail boxed Intel SBT2. Didn't consider this at first, but the front panel connectors are proprietary. There's also some kind of proprietary 10-pin connector, I believe it's required if using a redundant power supply. No idea if it's actually required to boot the board or not. Apparently the board is intended to be used with the Intel SC5000 pedestal case, but I got other plans for it.
Dual 1Ghz P3 Xeon SL4HF
4GB PC133 ECC
3DFX Voodoo5 5500 PCI
Sound Blaster Audigy
Dual 36GB Quantum SCSI drives
Sealed Sapphire Radeon X1950 Pro AGP
Came with a pair of 2.8Ghz Xeons, but I picked up a pair of 3.2Ghz on the cheap, the best this board will officially run. Unfortunately this board only officially supports 533Mhz FSB, but I can probably OC it a bit.
Those old dual CPU motherboards are so damn cool
Found another 256MB PC133 stick and the Retro Rig detects 512MB, even the manual says it supports only 256MB. Now I just need winxp to it
both at home ... tho i didn't sleep last night, sooo ... time to take a little rest, to avoid a critical fail on the unmounting/mounting/wiring .... edit: i will need to do some better shot of the Arima once fully awake ...
i just noticed i did the 1981th post on that thread ....
my birthdate is 12 december 1981 talk about luck
NOOOOOOOOOOO 9700Pro did it ... gah i got 1982... oh well for 20 day later i could have been 1982
I have an Intel SRSH4 server that looks to have a very similar board layout and the 10-pin connector. When I get home I can tell you what it does on mine. Being a Pentium 4 Xeon Quad-processor system it doesn't see a lot of use as it draws more power than an Athlon X2 system while being slower.
It's not the use, it's the feeling why we do this.
couldn't say better!
also heart transplantation for the DC7700P success
I am going to put another Athlon xp rig together here soon. This one I am going to stray away from the normal. LOL The Board is an Epox Krai pro with the Via Kt880 chipset.
SBT2 specification manual indicates those proprietary front panel connectors are for LEDs and indicators apparently. Power and reset switches have their own separate headers which will accept standard power/reset switch connections. Lol, I hope this board boots without the 10-pin.
Not to Nostalgic but it is a little.
My favorite card!
I still have HD4850. Still great, after... 6 years!
By the way, I'm thinking about changing case in my primary PC. How about It guys? (Link directly to offer in my country):
I wanted this, but seller don't sending It, only personal receive. Unfortunately, Wroclaw is too far from my city. Maybe Backfire will take it (German border). If I only had a car...
Can we consider an Asus M2V-MX as à old hardware?
AM2 so... maybe. For me old but still great socket.
Chieftec Dragon cases are my favorite old school case
yep (at last for me )
Oh heck yea man. They are getting pretty long in the tooth now.
Yep, the 4800 series was amazing. Really wish I hadn't sold my 4870s.
Has AMD had a socket that hasn't been great in some way?
Oh hell yeah. My AMD rig is still in a Dragon-style case.
Ha. This entire post was AMD.
My 1090t, 970be and Athlon xp rigs are in Dragon cases. My S939 is in a Koolance version.
What should I do with a spare X2 5000+ AM2 CPU?
Bench the snot out of it.
