486DX4 120...Wolfenstein 3D, Nascar, Doom, Duke Nukem 3D. I remember how awesome the sky was in Doom
SHOWTIME! : im bored i wait on my delivery i go to job at 17:30 but now its SHOWTIME!
HEY ThE_MaD_ShOt better now ?
funniest i pushed the fsb to 150mhz actually and instead of 2200+ it shows a Barton Athlon XP 2500+ (its originaly a 2200+)
also indeed that Xpertvision is a huge ass cooler on the card and man! a AGP8x with a Pci-E 6pin... lucky me i had a spare Antec Earthwatts 380w 80+
a bit of dust but dont worry i cleaned it afterward when i changed the dried up TIM on that X1950GT
and yep the HS on the back is huge and only a little thermal pad on the Rialto xDi believe it act more as a better rigid backplate than the traditional X shaped one
nearly 3 slot covered? hum 2.5
i didnt mesured it yet but the fan is a 80mm i guess or 92... the heatsink is red anodized aluminium good looking but its not cooper like the X800GT
and a final whatever pics ...
good ol' 3D Marks 2001 2nd weehee
I think quite a few Athlon xp cpu's did that. My Barton 2500+ showed up as a 3200+ with the FSB at 200.
I noticed that also
here is the highest i can get full stable atm (mostly due to the crappy Titan Majestic V HSF i use)
and the card is at 547/648 instead of 500/600 Catalyst auto tune only
funny GPU-Z show the ram oc but not the core but in monitoring it shows it right
Come on, you're so close to 3200+! Just 20MHz more on the FSB!
Edit: This is for you, used it as an avatar for a while a long time ago.
Edit 2: While looking for that image, ran across pics of an oldie but a goodie I still have somewhere, and yes, it still works.
The original "All-in-Wonder": The Radeon 32M
ahahahahaha i like you Random!
naahhh i wait till i get my Titan Vanessa S Type to swap the craptastic and loud as hell Majesty V
It honestly felt that way back when I bought my first s754 chip, a 3400+ Newcastle. Newcastles did not like FSB adjustment at all, basically making them unoverclockable. Swapped it for a 939 system, then a 775 system, and never looked back.
Ok, that's a lie. After putting together the 990FX rig I have now, I wouldn't mind having one as my main PC, lol. But that ought to show you how well post-netburst intel has treated me. Since leaving AMD after early 939, I haven't considered going back until late AM3+.
Can't wait to see what that little XP will do for you under a better cooler
No push it a little farther , now a little more farther
Just a little more
Great job man.
well i might say so but the Athlon XP rig feels great even for day to day uses, thanks to a little more horse under the hood and the fantastic X1950GT, far the greatest card i had for AGP since the last AGP card i poped in that rig was a X1650Pro
i run all AMD my main rig (even for playing Firefall) atm is the AM2+ Phenom X4 9600B (using it with the 460 Hawk atm clocked 900/2100 instead of 780/1800 GOSH MSI did indeed a killer 460 xD)
modern gaming with a 4gb 32bit with a midrange 4xx serie and a X4 9600? hell yeah i even play Firefall with all to the max for fun ... even if i get some fps drop under 40fps
in fact im so much a nostalg33k i ditched my AM3 and AM3+ component to get some old school beast ... (not the AM2+... oh well its still a damn good old piece of buttkicking tech)
but as i said in the Your PC atm thread:
im getting a 1366 i7-920 with 12gb 1600mhz wich will go on a Rampage III Extreme paired with a Zotac GTX580 AMP! 1.5gb under a Prolimatech MK-26 with 2 Noiseblocker Blackframe 140 and the IFX-14 for the cpu, im currently ordering some Thermalright TY-143 orange 140mm fan... Silver Arrow SB-X Extreme??? naaaah not for me, the best part ? the price ofc!
board cpu ram : 100$
MK-26 45$ (fan inclued)
the X1950GT (funny Xi is Palit i understand the Unknown partner in GPU-Z now) 15$
AM2+ can be nostalgic but Sckt1366 i doubt of it (well 5yrs old isnt 7yrs old eh?)
1366 is still a very strong runner. I also agree that a fast Athlon xp can still be viable for daily usage like web browsing and such.
I have an Athlon XP socket 754 64bits 3200+ 1m cache. The regular ones are 512k cache. It runs pretty well even with Windows 7 pro in Aero mode with a good graphic card and 2 gigs ddr400.
nope its a Athlon 64 not a XP since the XP was Socket A (462) only
but indeed win 7 can runn well on that, bring up the pics of the beast!
system pec: windows pro french? uh?
yes indeed and thats why mostly the total idiotic buyers go balistic on bidding either way because they are fanboy or mislead by the thought : Intel = the ultimate and only solution.
me im just a lucky one i spot a good offer that no one has spoted and kablam 265$ for a complete system, with some extra
for instance i just got outbid on a i7-980X and 2 minutes later the price is at 850chf ... whataaaa bunch of ahhh whatever...
now i cant decide ... a leap motion at 50chf instead of 100 (brand new) or a i7-3820 at 150chf and assemble a 2011 setup next time
i recieved the i7 weirdest delivery i got a ASUS P6T SE within and the 12gb ram with a notice that i will recieve the Rampage before the end of the week i was WTF i get 2 1366 Mobo and the CPU/RAM for 100$? is it my birthday?
awesome new the ram slot on a 1366 are a half centimeter from the Macho with the fan instaled: no need for LP ram like AM3/3+
weirdest win7 instalation i prepared to reinstall all since i went from a AMD AM3 to a Intel 1366 but it booted without BSOD and all the driver automaticaly installed reboot and all runs fine i just had to re activate win
drat my e-tailer is out of TY-141 so i went for a 2nd TY-147 white still the IFX doesnt have the 1366 hole setup but the P6T has double setup (775/1366) i hope the Rampage will be same or i will use the Macho for it aswell.
I have swapped Hdds from system to system a few times without issue. I for safe measure boot in safe mode and remove previous mobos drivers. Then reboot and install new drivers and also check to make sure the proper cpu inf is loaded. Amd/intel. I have also done it with Ubuntu alot. I have one install that has been through several systems and still keeps going.
ATI Radeon 9600 256 DDR AGP
I just dumped it inside a Chenming Cube with front handle. The black and silver one. I think it's date from 2004. It's so narrow in the case that i could barely take pictures. Yes in french I am from Quebec.
muhahahahaha at last she'll be mine! 1$ ...
Have you got pictures of the system?
No I did not and I wont for a long time. This case is so tight that you have to fits and snuggle all wires together with tie-wraps. It took me 3 hours to do it clean and now if I want to open it I must cut all tie-wraps.
EDIT: After testing it the psu is blown. I will need to buy one over 400w minimum requierement. For now no $$$ so no candy.
Picked these up at a thrift store today. I'm sure many will remember the first card. Only thing I need to do now is build a nice Pentium II for the first card, 2nd card will work great in a 486 or something.
ohhhh a Isa Mach64 i have a PCI Mach64VT
Do you thin ka small distro like Xubuntu could fit in a P2 or 486 and make it "fast" like it was with a low demanding Windows 95-98?
With a GUI most Linux distros won't work well at all on anything older than a Pentium III, and a Pentium III is often slow.
Without a GUI isn't bad though on a Pentium and newer. I'm an oddball that's put Linux on basically everything from a 486 to a Core 2 Quad and I have to say that if your system has less than a Tualatin Pentium III compiling code will be sluggish.
On a 486 some ancient distros like OpenLinux work alright; however going into something more modern can be somewhat slow. Debian 3 runs alright for example, but takes a good 4 or 5 minutes to start. Compare that to the 20 seconds for Debian 7 on my little 1 GHz Via CoreFusion IRC server and you'll see a difference.
You might want to try Damn Small Linux.
Indeed, something with a desktop that is little more than openbox/blackbox/IceWM with some additional panels/buttons and comes without a ton of built-in drivers.
