still have some de dusting to do but that configuration will go in the Carbide Spec 01 i have and the AXP rig in my sys spec will be back in the nemesis, also i have to find several GPU for both that rig and the workstation ... lately it has been harder to look for something interesting (price wise) but i know i will find something ... at last end of october will be quite .... full of ol'n news for me :D (budget raising ... slowly but steadily )

i have none ... because i seek the best deal, so the price of one piece can vary a lot, unlike actual hardware.
and i have no gpu in mind, i don't care as long as they are from before 2009

funny even a KT133 mobo from 1999-2000 has a isolated pcb around the soundchip? eh? what about the whole new concept from ASUS ASRock and co ... oh wait ... they stole it :)

Just a question about old hardware. Does the cpu power really change something if you want to make a download only rig? Let's say a Compaq Evo D51S SFF with a 2.8 gigs skt 478 and 2 gigs of DDR1-400 with Win7 32bits. A computer I already have and ready to roll but will it bottleneck if I start many downloads at same time and I let it run for whole day or weekend? Should I plug a PCI lan card instead to remove some "pressure" on the cpu data processing?

Thx guys and gals.
Even a 486 should cope. The main thing that might matter is the onboard LAN and whether it can keep up with you internet connection.

Intel 82547EI should be his target,since it's a gigabit chip.

Wrong. It,s Intel 815 chip with a 10/100 Mbps lan.
Again wrong. 82547EI is the LAN chip from i865/i875 chipsets and it's integrated on the motherboard.

the hell? a downgrade .... you are joking right? i dont want to change my main rig GPU ... we are in "Nostalgic Hardware" thread ... i was not talking about recent gpu ...
(why would i change the 3rd most powerfull gpu for the 4th :D 780<290<Titan<290X<780Ti specially when the price of one nV card is almost the double of one AMD card where i am :D )

i was talking about that kind of gpu IE: 8800GT Ultra 768 edit: good the seller agreed to wait till Monday ... oh well i've found the GPU for the Salvager Mk II

the hell? a downgrade .... you are joking right? i dont want to change my main rig GPU ... we are in "Nostalgic Hardware" thread ... i was not talking about recent gpu ...
(why would i change the 3rd most powerfull gpu for the 4th :D 780<290<Titan<290X<780Ti specially when the price of one nV card is almost the double of one AMD card where i am :D )

i was talking about that kind of gpu IE: 8800GT Ultra 768 edit: good the seller agreed to wait till Monday ... oh well i've found the GPU for the Salvager Mk II
Here in Romania it's exactly reverse: nVidia cards are cheaper than AMD/ATI!

Sure I am!

Here,a ASUS GT210 with 64bit 1GB video card is about $43.20 which is 145RON. And to top that,you also get a 2 year warranty which is damn enough.

An HD5450 with 64bit 2GB of RAM (so a bit better)is about $62.71 which is 210.49RON. Around the same price that 5450 has I could get either a new original Xbox or 2 new PS2 slims. WTH?

Not to mention,a HD6850 here is as much as a second hand PS3 phat,which is 600RON or $178.77.

I had a Shuttle AK12A BE v3.0. Sad that all caps were bulged. It was one of the boards that were made by ECS but nevertheless the motherboard remembered me of the CUSL2-C Black Edition. In fact,it was almost like that except it had crap caps (dammit ECS,you had one job and you NAILED NAILED NAILED it! >___<)and had Socket 462.

I still have the memory from it. It had the KT133 (aka VT8363)chipset. I used to run a FX5200 128MB card on it but that died (and shorted something in my LCD that I had to get the monitor fixed)
