do boxes count? i have an ATI XPERT 98 box, but sadly the card inside is a 2MB gfx card >_<
I didn't know that Dell used standard ATX motherboards. That's interesting.
Awesome old hardware!!!!
Added your name to the original post.
sorry its a missunderstanding i meant : the CPU come from a Dell Inspiron 9700 (the HUGE "gamer" laptop from Dell, i call it like that because ... spec where awesome when it went out and also huge ... did you saw that thing ? i mean IT was REALLY HUGE!!)
and the P4P800VM was from a desktop SSF from Maxdata i found in the same dump where i found the Armada 1700 xD, i remember i also saw a AIO Acer Veriton (PIII and such) i guess i will fetch it tomorow
i like giving a new home to little computing boys who where left to certain death by their previous owner ... am i wrong?
Ye ole soundcard (i dont remember model i need to recheck) ISA BUS!
HDD IBM 4.2gb
ohhh look a Raspberry p... eerrrhmmm a Acer N50 Premium board with a Xscale 520mhz 64mb ram
that remind me i have a HP Jornada 540 somewhere ... Hitachi sh3 proc inside (damned nobody tought of the sh4 to do a Pocket pc??? ok ok i know exclusivity to the Dreamcast xD oh i still have one of those ... aside with a Saturne Serie 1 europe)
not too dusty
seems to be a GF5200
Creatix fax modem ??? eh ... i didnt have one ... nice!
I HATE WHEN IT HAPPEN! well at last no pin broken or missing
P4 2.6ghz/512/533 i guess my P4 2.8/1m/800 HT will not be supported (dang and i hoped for a Williamette S423 for my collection....
OH YES! 512mb total xD
booting full ... hummm .... 1st comp i find in that dump with a fully functional stats from base
i found the caddy of the Armada1700 but unforunately the previous user did break all the connector pin ... sooo sad well live CD and usb key all the way so
ahahah i didnt think i would find one
the Acer Veriton i mentioned ... will it work? ahah
i found info about the Inspiron 9700 proc
Pentium 4 HT 2.8E SL79K2.80 GHz 1024 KB 800 MT/s 14× 1.25/1.525 V
1.25/1.4 V 89 W Socket 478 February 1, 2004 RK80546PG0721M
Dell in fact used a Desktop proc in it...
and a lil non oldies bonus they are lookalike its meant to be so, but will anyone recognise the manga used as reference (if you dont like i can remove it) cookie to the 1st one to say Manga serie name and name of the character
a lil up
hand in bits'n grease in the Microstar tower... i guess i swap the FX5200 for my 9700 and the FSP 250w for a 350w psu i have aside, if i recall correctly P4 where performing better than Athlon XP (well my MSI KT6V would be better than the uATX mobo it has but i want to give it a shot for Retrogaming and non 7 compatible games i have)
nostalgeek is obviously nostalgic
beer for all!
Not too hard when you name the picture her own name
Miria from Claymore xD
EDIT: On a side note. From where is the big picture from?
welllll yes ... i did forgot to remove name reference in the filename ... shame on me
correct answer is Fantome Miria but Miria is correct
grats on Claymore (obviously google'ing Miria give Claymore as 1st result ... DAMNED!)
here take a beer im out of cookies atm (didnt had time to bake some )
EDIT: its my Tera character "Kuremoa" Miria was allready taken ... duh ... now i got to find the user and if she doesnt look like it ... i will have to kill him and cancell his account or erase the char... *EVIL LAUGH* MUHAHAHAHAHAHAHAAAAARRRHHH!
Impressive xD the screen was cracked but it did start smoothly on external screen i might eviscerate it and tinker with his innards... fun time incoming !
i will post the rest of it when the image host will be operational
Beer sounds good
Ah, I suspected as much it was Tera. I have to try that game sometime. Ah, so instead you gave your character the anime's/manga's name. xD
That Acer looks really good! Surely if you want to get that up and running like new you could probably try to fit in some old (my guess 15") panel in there.
What are the specs on that?
busy seeking a ps2 mouse and keyboard i update when im back from the loot stash...
and indeed Kuremoa is the phonetical translation of Claymore in japanese
PIII Coopermine 600mhz 128mb ram
ATI 3D rage pro chipset 440BX
i did some little modification 8cm fan on the powerphase and Liquid Metal Pad+heatsink from a SIS AGP card on the Video chip
then a Colorado fan (comming from a CPU cooler from a Cyrix MII)above the video chip
booting win xp home : ended on a non supported input on the screen, i will go for DsLinux instead
Damn GreiverBlade, ya got some awesome ole hardware man!!!!
Damn, that Acer Veriton must have been something else in its time.
well i like it more in little bits on my torture table ...
lets resume : PIII 600mhz integrated 3D rage Pro LT 128mb ram (2 slot avaiable so could be upgraded) hummm a 1999-2000 iMac? with more power and less space wasted than the 1998 CRT imac 1st model?
damn i love non conventional formfactor 90degree Secc1 1 pci and a Riser with 2 slot on it ... unusual plug layout ... non 24pin ATX Slim cdrom powered by the Pata cable, no I/O onboard except VGA and LAN .... all the rest is on separate wired extension.
weird nice and quite amusing .... a point that Veriton and i, share .... in nomine veritas
pps: the P4 HT of the Inspiron 9700 is a Prescott and the one in the Microstar tower (funny fact its MSI ... they own the brand Medion in Switzerland) is a Northwood (not the HT one) maybe i can upgrade the bios... who kows
For all the nostalgic hardware all of you have brought to the thread, here is a little awesome nostalgic music done by the original................Old guys!!!!!!
when i watch Black Dog live on the same channel ....: tears in the eyes... joy tears that is !
The 2007 concert they performed at the O2 hall in England was frigging awesome!!!! They flat murdered Kashmir!!!
Dug this out on the "dark and obsolete" section of parts where I work. This shiny new Voodoo 2 most likely never used! It's still really shiny and nearly dust free.
My guess is that it was taken out from some new Gateway computer back then and stored in a anti-static bag inside a small box.
Inside the box was still the external male-female VGA cable.
Ahh... I wish I could've gotten one of these back in 1998 when I got my Pentium 166 MMX, which was only equipped with an onboard S3 Trio with 1MB of RAM (later added another MB to be able to do 1024x768 16bit )
SMEXY (i had one of those xD for Quake 1 xD, wich i found the Original box and CD alongside with Scourge Of Armaggon extension while scavenging for ole hardware in my boxes)
ohhhh boy i found my last hardware box ... some cpu, old ram, and also 256MB SDR PC100 from Kingston... weehee the Veriton has 256mb now (im writing that post on it xD) /o/
now i just need to make some place in my HTC One X memory and take some pics
Nice, I wish I had two of these back in the day.
Lucky! Well how else would a 11 year old kid be able to buy one of the most expensive GPUs back then? lol xD
I even thought about buying a couple of those and a 233MHz MMX back in about 2003 when I had a few more spare change to revive the old 166 but something changed my mind lol.
Oh, glad you got that Veriton working! 256MB is not bad! 512MB would be golden but, still good
I would've been happy with just one lol xD
Wow, that does look brand new Trigger!!
Man, I thought you were on the list in the original post but I guess not.
I added ya man!
Who had one of these. They were a beast in their day, this one is still solid today.
Wat? Is it me or that PSU can be overvolted?
Never seen one of those. Nice
Over- or under-volted. most people who had them(and knew what they were doing) put a slight over-volt on them to account for droop or would set the rails to their exact values when the system was under load. Was a great feature, I'm surprised it didn't catch on.
It's strange that it didnt catch on
I remember when them power supplies came out. They seemed to always be too expensive for me to afford LOL.
And wanted to share this score with everyone. Should have it by next Monday or Tuesday.
I believe it is the SX1040 II. I know it isn't the SX1040 BII which I would have preferred, but this one will work.
The guy told me he purchased it right when they first came out, used it for a short time, and it has been in the factory box every since! The damn thing looks like it is brand new, at least from the pictures.
