    Say, does a GeForce FX5200 count as nostalgic? :D I've seen a water block for it up for grabs at a shop for a mere 10 bucks lol. Makes me ponder if I should watercool my P4 (478)/FX5200 rig :laugh: A 1x80 rad for each CPU and GPU would be plenty I think. Or a single 120 for both. Ideas are developing...

    Hell, probably a single 120 would be more than plenty for a P4 and FX5200. If you don't have a water block for the CPU, the AquaXtreme that I am selling here has the bracket for the Socket 462, 478, and 775 included man! The price includes shipping USPS Priority mail:rockout:

    I've got a Voodoo Banshee and 5500 back at my parents place. I need to try and remember to get pics to add. I'll never let go of those two cards. Still work too!

    Finally remember to take some pictures now that I'm home this weekend. Also found out that my dad put the V5500 in to a old pc and gave it to my sister's boyfriend. I got to go get that thing back and put the AGP GeForce 6200 in that system. Still don't know why he did that.

    I also found out I've got parts I can barely remember buying. :laugh:

    Matrox Millennium 2MB

    9600 AIW I think. I got it with a pc I bought from a friend years ago.

    Apparently a 3Dfx Voodoo 3000 though I don't remember getting this one for me or my dad.

    I've come to realize that I'm a slut and the pc industry had been my pimp. :shadedshu

    That Creative card started it all for me. Also, I think that Matrox might have come out of the Hewlett Packard my parents got. It has a sweet 120Mhz Pentium, Windows 95, and something like 2MB of EDO Ram. My dad put a 5.25 floppy drive in it because it didn't have one. He said he needed it since all his stuff was on 5.25s. Same thing happened with the next pc and it didn't have a 3.5 drive. Now, everything was on 3.5 floppies so he had to have one put in. :laugh:

    The Samurai DDR chipset - the most amazing chipset we never got in retail. Would have been the first one with DDR support and along with it's Rambus crushing performance, had very advanced features.

    Each chipset supported one or two Slot 1 (Pentium) or Slot 2 (Xeon) processors, an AGP slot, DDR-200/266 memory, and 32/64 bit PCI slots. They could be linked together, up to a theoretical 512 CPUs (and 256 AGP slots, 256-channel DDR, etc).

    After seeing a review at Tomshardware back in '99, I must have drooled gallons waiting for it to coming out... but it never did :(

    Okay, I know these next items are not really what could be called "nostalgic" however they are getting rare and getting pretty old in computer technology. My Grandson and I are going to build this for him (he is 8:p). He is just so into computers and all the gear that goes along with it. The motherboard is an Asus A8N-SLI Premium s939 sporting a dual core Athlon 64 3800+ with a Thermaltake Blue Orb II and running 2gb's of crucial DDR400 ram.

    The video cards are of course EVGA 8800GTX SuperClocked. One of the cards I picked up from the original owner with the original box and all the accessories, and the other is a matching card but no box.

    When the grandson and I get this together, it should really be a pretty sweet system. Will be putting Windows XP on the system, since that is what the little guy is used to:p

    I remember shopping for my 1950 Pro right about the time the 8 series nVidia cards first came out. I thought people were insane for spending $600+ for a single card as my budget was ~$250 at the time.

    Here's a few things I've got laying around and that are still in use today :)

    My Abit KR7A with Thunderbird 850Mhz and my Abit NF7-S Rev 2 - Best socket A motherboard I've ever had!

    [​IMG]

    My MSI K8N Neo 939 board AND My DFI Nforce 4 Lan party board -

    [​IMG]

    All still in use, all still very much alive and working well :D Just wish using SATA drives on my Abit NF7-S was a bit more simple!!

    I have a load of old games that I miss playing so I'm using these rigs to help with that problem :D Its just a shame Windows 98 is being a pain and I cant get a single SATA driver to work on my Abit NF7-S and I have to use Raid 0 to install Windows XP! :(

    I do have a few upgrades on the way, so I cant wait to post them up for you as well :D I've nearly finished making my bench tables for these bits of hardware, I hope they are worthy of such amazing hardware :D
