I'm on the athlon rig now It boots up fine.
No cam yet though
Some old hardware I got collecting dust. If only I got an AGP rig it would be sweet
3D Blaster Voodoo Banshee
Rage 128 PCI 32MB
gotta realize i was 15 when I owned that card, its been 13 years since then
Clean up my room and found this, an ASUS SP97-V socket 7 motherboard, I used to play Red Alert 2 on this, loading took 15 minutes, to build power plant took another 15 minutes
CPU with integrated heatsink, modern CPU should come with this
Pentium 100MHz no integrated heatsink alongside its heatsink cousin 166MHz
DIP switch overclocking FTW alongside pipeline burst cache on top
One socket to rule them all; Intel, IBM, Cyrix, AMD, you name it it's supported (3.5V Vcore OMGWTF )
Good stuff you have there.
Couldn't agree more Mad Shot!!!
Apocalypsee, very awesome nostalgia there man.
Added you to the original post bro.
Got two unopened PCI cards. Opened one of them to take shots, plus I think I will use it.
Nice man. I have the big brother to that card in agp version, the Fx5700
FRIIIIIIIIIIIIIICCCKKK i love that box! i owned one but when i moved stuff to my new home my dad just throwed it away thinking it was just a old junk ... DUH i think i have to throw away his Elvis Vinyl collection to show him what it is to break the heart of a nostalgic person!!!
DUBBLE DUH i have countless WinXP Pro license now ... i found another HP SSF DC7100 (the Skt775 P4 version) to add to the DC7700c buuuuttt i cant find my XP pro dvd ... i guess i use Homeko instead ...
meanwhile ... MICROSOFT IS ANNOYING ME ! i assembled the "Nemesis retrobuild" (finaly ...) installed WinXP HE and actived it ... still i hate service pack ... i have to download them from one of the "modern" rigs because:
to install SP1a you need to passe via the update center reach update center you need at last IE8, to use IE8 you need at last SP2 ... WHAAATTTTT!!! thats totaly counterproductive!!!!(i know i can DL SP3 without DL SP1/1a/2 but still the 1st part is ... )
and i also need to find another socket A cooler ... the Titan silver orb is a screaming little pest! triple duh
i have a AGP sibling or ... evil twin ... the MSI OEM FX5200 i showed in a previous post with samsung ramchip instead of elixir also
Very very awesome Frick! Of course you are added to the original post.
You could kill someone with that stick of ram
I'll see your 4MB EDO simm and raise you an 256KB L2 DIP chip
The oldest hardware I had was an IBM Aptiva 2159-18R with 48MBof of EDO simm, 1 32MB stick and another 16MB, 2MB video courtesy of Ati Rage and an 8Gb Hdd which I killed, used to play Starcraft on that machine, and old DOS games, loved Doom and especially Mech Warrior 2. Still have the keyboard though, works like a charm .
I see your 256KB L2 DIP chip and raise you a tube of Intel 8086s.
Here's the athlon system, no pretty but it works.
I have an old Pentium 120Mhz Notebook with 8MB of RAM, a VESA compatible graphics card, a sound blaster 16 (!!) and an 800x600 color display. Even the battery works! My fathers neighbour just came up to me and said "Look, I have this old notebook, it's REALLY old but... want it?" I had a look at it and said "YES YES YES OMG!" - and he was like "Ooookaaaay?".
Anyway, he was the boss of a local bank and it used to be company property so given that and the hardware specs it must have been very expensive when it was new. Looks as good as new, too, and came with a carrying bag and an old mouse.
We moved recently, but I like to use that machine to run Win98 and to play all the old DOS games natively Will see if I can find it at home and post a few pics.
something picked up my attention Tigger
the PSU is a FSP i see, what "w"? i ask because i have a spare 250w FSP and i cant read it on that pics xD the fan grill looks like its a "screwed on it" wich could be different than the one i have, mine is "cut in the psu casing"
edit: indeed its a 350w now i can barely see it xD i use a crappy LC power 350w on my athlon XP setup if my FSP wasnt 250w i would totaly use it over the LC
swapped the crappy fan i had on the back and door for 2 coolink Swiff120 (front intake is a Cooler Master 120)
a bit cleaner than before and now i had found some DDR 512mb so i have 1gb atm and im writing that post on it
new guy in the house not so nostalgic since i got it under Win7
AMD Athlon x2 4850e 4gb ram radeon HD3600 serie i will add more details when i will get my hands on it
That Athlon Xp rig is screaming for another proc that or the one in there could be underclocked by lets say Alot.
yeah yeah i know its underclocked originaly it was at 1.7 and now 1.26 dunno why didnt bothered to check atm
good news the case of the new one seems to be a Antec NSK380 i got the whole rig for 80$ pretty happy about that one
good news scnd: the mobo seems to be a Asus M3N78-VM wich support the Phenom II X4 955 i have (i know pointless xD) but it also support the Phenom X4 9600b i found for 1$
Gigabyte K7 Triton with a Athlon XP 2500+
I've got the GA-7N400-Pro 2 version of that mobo
Ok well funny story. This is not a Gigabyte K7. Its a MSI KT4 Ultra. The person that gave it to me put a Gigabyte north bridge heat sink on it and put it in a Gigabyte box. I caught on when I noticed the box says Dual Channel and the board only has three slots. Plus the board is red.
i wonder if i can call a AM2+ setup nostalgic ... i guess so ...
btw i got that for 1$ as said above, now im waiting on the reste to come to do some tests
the main mobo of my Athlon XP rigs is a MSI KT6V400 xD
