Benchmark Scores bench...mark? i do leave mark on bench sometime, to remember which one is the most comfortable. :o
if you use straight DRAM without any battery as an SSD you lose your data, plus that battery can die without warning. They were the earliest SSDs before nand flash memory came into use.
well yes thanks for repeating what i wrote ;)

thats specially why i precised Volatile and Non Volatile, thus SSD mean Solide State Disk wich is still clearly the definition of a SD card or any other mem card incluing ram stick, hence why i said the name is too generic only the Volatile and Non Nolatile make the difference.


But i get your point dont worry.(and i know you get mine aswell)

Also Ram SSD with a battery that can die without warning is indeed not comfortable.:roll:

i owned one ... i didnt kept it ... I WAANNNTT ONE for my collection!

the best of the best !!! the one that showed intel what fear was ... sadely it didnt lasted long (still i use AMD only rigs, except for my Fractal Design Core1000 wich has a PhenomII X4 810 alongside with a Nvidia GTX560ti Oem (who strangely is based on GF110 but has a 320bits bus instead of the 256bits bus showed in GPU database))

I am running a Slot A win 98 rig for some old gaming pleasure. I will get some pics of the complete rig in action once I get it unpacked. I just bought a new house so I have packed up all the non critical stuff.

Got some new stuff in. The vid cards are a little rough, going to clean them up/replace the thermal paste on them. The 9700 Pro is missing a fan blade, will probably ghetto something together to replace it. The Zalman heatsink on the 9800 Pro is missing a screw and the support bars across the top, that'll be fixed at some point, tempted to remove the ramsinks on the back of the card and replace them with low-pros; the original owner just bent his because they wouldn't fit otherwise.

Gainward GeForce 6800 "GS" 128MB - Someone must have had a dead Gainward 6800GT and swapped out the coolers, pretty sure this is not standard for the GS.
Radeon 9800 Pro 128MB
Gateway OEM Nvidia FX5950 Ultra 256MB
LeadTek WinFast A250 128MB

pretty old or is it you who is pretty young? ohhh well i still posted a pics of a GTX560ti OEM (GF110) so i guess you can call it nostalgic but not old ... (you can be nostalgic about yesterday so why not)

edit: 6month in computer aging is indeed old ... so we can call 7xxx series and 6xx series from AMD/Nvidia old?

Original version of PC had 2*256 MB RAM, 160 GB HDD. I used MSI 7600 GT for some time. In the end of life of PC I updated Cooling system including CPU fan, Case fan and VGA cooler because old one was almost dead and very noisy. Unfortunately he crashed and some parts were sold, some were given for free, some of them is in my loft.

I feel nostalgia for him because it is times then AMD was best. I looks that it is one of newest computer based on AMD which is better than respective Intel computer (well maybe Phenom II were also competitive in beginning of life). I don't know if AMD could be competitor for Intel anytime in future.

indeed ... good ol' time of AMD was good ol'time(tm) :toast:

well they are competitive for APU (performance wise ... since any intel chip with a graphical part can be considered as a APU but ... its a AMD term 1st hand)

i still run my 2 Phenom II (X4 and X6) rigs till i can find a good deal on a 6300/8320/8350 (hopefully the 3rd one ... :D ) to switch the X6 in place of the X4 (X6 is on a AM3+ ASRock 970 Ex3 the X4 on a crapbag RS780L from Foxconn)

weirdest part: games run better (fps) on the X4 than the X6 i wonder why ... well tomorrow it will be better! woohoo 7950 3gb sweetdeals for the mainrig (still in a dilemma of keeping the GTX560ti oem or switching it for the 6950 2gb i have actually):banghead:

AMD will still be competitive on price side tho ...

I used to have an Athlon 3700+ San Diego Core with a K8N Neo4-F. I still have it, but I need to replace the VRM caps, they're bulging. I have a set of 2Gb of DDR-400 for it, so once I replace the caps, it will be good as new. A better chipset cooler might be in order though if I do decide to revive it.

I've got BALLS OF STEEL. It's time to kick ass and chew bubblegum, and I'm all out of bubblegum.

On a serious note, I've started a project log of a retro build I'm throwing together. It's not as old as some of the stuff posted here, but it is relatively old.
