Speaking of old memories & photos, how about I take you back to 1995 (or maybe 1996 - not sure)? :)


In case it's not obvious - yes, that's 10-yr old me sitting in front of Intel 486 DX2 (66MHz), playing "Stunts" (first photo) & "The Incredible Machine" (second photo), two of my favorites at the time!

That's okay. To be completely honest with you guys, in a LOT of ways I feel much older than I actually am, and despite my best efforts I was never able to blend in with everyone else. Especially nowdays, when I'm slowly approaching 40s...

Sad but true! The only (sad) difference is that we won't be around forever, but most of these old "Dinosaurs" such as 386, 486 will probably outlive all of us :)

Same. And as I often work with much younger generation, the struggle is surreal.

That 486 DX2 66 system was very expensive back then. Back then at my work we calculated how much 32MiB of RAM would've cost (I think that was the amount of system RAM the IBM S/390 mainframe had) and it came out to $5k.
Oh yeah, it most definitely was! But since both mom & dad needed to use Word & Win 3.11 for their work, it was a sound investment. We owned it for 3 years (between early 1995 and October 1998) before moving on with "Adison" , that Pentium II 350 system which I already mentioned zillion times by now :)

Needless to say, that Pentium II 350 Deschutes was just as expensive if not more. But again, these were in service for 3 or 4 years before moving on. In case of Adison PII (which I still have & occasionally use today) that makes it a 24yr investment, so it most definitely paid off :D

like my parent, i do look younger than i am ... just today at work one of my customer gave me 27 first try and 33 at most

"well ... i am actually 20 ... since 21years now" is my answer to them :)

also:
you got me all nostalgic (fitting) i was 3 at the time of release of that one and my parent told me i loved listening to it ahah
to the point that we had one VHS recording of it just for me :laugh:

Aww, that's adorable! You look like one of my kids! LOL! He never needed glasses and had my chin but otherwise you could pass for one of my boys! I don't mean to make that sound creepy or anything, just thought it was interesting. :toast::peace:

I was a 70's kid, but I'm with you, the 80's and 90's were golden decades in many ways.

All computer equipment was much more expensive in the 80's and 90's, particularly CRT's, but also HDD's and memory.

The first 17" CRT we had at my work had everyone in the department taking a look at it because it was so massive and expensive. Ditto for color CRT's, most everyone in my department had monochrome, 15" CRT's in the early 1990's.

Reminds me of a story my dad told me about my mom's old work computer. Back in 2009/2010 my dad bought her a Dell XPS 9000 with an i7-920 and extra goodies like 24GB of RAM and a Radeon 5870 (my mom never knew how high-end it was at the time). At some point, not too long after it was bought, my dad brought it to OfficeMax to get something fixed and he said that all of the OfficeMax employees were gathered around the mighty system, staring in awe.

Thanks lol, I'm going to take that as a compliment :)

Speaking of 70s, I always felt as if I was born in the wrong year. All my friends and loved ones (either dead or those who are still here with us) are from around 70-s to early 80s. Not to mention that 70s and early 80s were far more interesting than 90s and especially 2000s.

If you allow, I would like to contribute to this thread as well.
Motherboard:Intel Goldtree DG43GT
Release Date: Q3'09
Socket: LGA775
Motherboard Chipset: Intel® 82G43 Graphics and Memory Controller
Supported FSBs: 1333MHz / 1066MHz / 800MHz
TDP: 24W
Maximum Memory Size (depends on memory type): 8 GB
Memory Types: DDR2 667/800
Max. Number of Memory Channels: 2
Max. Number of DIMMs: 4
Motherboard Supports UEFI BIOS.
Modifying or modding an Intel Motherboard BIOS takes a lot of effort.
I hope someone knows this.
Motherboard BIOS Date Done 2022.
NVMe SSD Module injected in BIOS file content.
I got a successful result.
Any brand and model NVMe SSD drive can be installed on this motherboard and GPT formatted windows operating system can be installed. (Not MBR)
This work is perhaps the first time tried for a 775 socket motherboard.

Got this in. Very impressed about how professionally it was packaged and they threw in free ram it wasn't listed as including, especially since this was an auction won for $1 :)

No clue if it works, will test and probably clean it up.

Edit: works perfectly. Went ahead and repasted the northbridge, will work on cleaning it a bit more but it overall is in excellent condition. Caps all look good as well.

The P5W DH Deluxe seems like a very good Intel i975X motherboard. I was surprised to see this board supports 45nm CPUs despite being a rather early chipset as far as 775 goes.
I am going to update the BIOS to add this support. I mainly bought this because of the price but also because it will be officially supports nearly every 775 CPU from old to "new".

They all post just fine. I have a lot of XMS lying around, I'll have to see if I have another matching stick

If not, I might have one. I'd have to check to make sure, but I think I have some of that XMS2 6400 in my DDR2 box.

If you need, I'd certainly ship ya a stick.

Are you in the US? That would make it easy. LOL

What are the odds. While I have much less XMS2 in my memory storage than I thought, the single 1gb stick I do have is identical. v2.1 so it should be the same IC type. Now I have a nice 4gb kit I can use for whatever. I think I'll keep the x6800 in this board and keep the qx6700 in my 680i striker, which feels more appropriate of a match.

Had to enable memory remap to get it to see above 3.2gb, but it's all showing properly now. Also put the latest BIOS on it, which is a Beta from 2010.

DEC Alpha, world's first Ghz. CPU. Introduced in 1992, the Ghz. models were only introduced after Compaq had bought DEC in 2001.
Even now, it's hard to imagine a PC manufacturer buying out DEC. All the mainframers and DEC people I worked with thought of PC's as toys. I only personally ever saw one functioning Ghz. class Alpha system at Cal State University, Long Beach. It's somewhat ludicrous that Compaq has its name on it, because it was DEC engineers who developed it.
