Heh, I tried to sell one of those on TPU about 2 years back, no one would buy it, it's still here in a drawer somewhere....
and not only by a little !
you will have work to put all in 1 post once on a computer otherwise i would think you use the phone excuse for hunting for "thanks" (joke)
damned ... paypal account top up failed and i don't know where the money did go ... aaaaaaaargh! i have to wait some more till i can buy the Riowork SSI board ... (3 weeks or until paypal or my bank figure out where the money is ...)
humpf i might get rid of my W0W account for a friend (he would give me symbolically a certain amount for the time invested) 1 yrs almost since last time i played it ... i know what blizz think about "giving" account but eh ... better of use to someone then frozen with 4 90 and 1 87... plus it could fund some of my nostalgic needs ... dunno ... maybe someday i will have a sudden urge to re activate it ... or not... dilemma
nice but you should put some text about the hardware, like spec or year or is it still working or not or where do you find it
duh, cleaning it a little then take a shoot
Nice 8800 Ultra!!!!!!!!!!
my Asus Matrix 9800GT 512mb and my plain HP 9800GT 1gb (who are renamed 8800GT ) never got so much !!!!!!!!!! ... i am jealous now ...
I found my OCZ Flex-2 PC2- 9200 2GB Dual Ch. kit.
The dust adds to the age of the hardware, the more dust it gathers the older it is. If it has Gold then you polish it, duh!
One of the better known upgrade CPU's. It is based on the AMD DX5-133. Basically just a high speed 486 with extra cache. It is a capable performer and happens to be rather overclockable (160MHz is usually attainable)
Sockets 1 - 2 - 3
Core AMD DX5
I don't know what's happening with my IC7-G. I set up a RAID on the intel controller but on the XP setup it shows the i-RAMs as separate drives. After copying all the files and restarting it won't enter the setup until it undo the RAID (return disks to non-RAID, not disabling RAID on the bios). I thought, "ok, well then, I'll re-arm the RAID with the Intel Accelerator suite once Windows loads". I've done it before, making a RAID from a full disk (the IAS will automatically spread the clusters between the two drives) but it can't do it with the system volume
I've reflashed the bios but the matter continues. Yes, I loaded the RAID drivers with F6. If I don't the drives don't even show up.
I'll test on my nforce3 board.
Nice website for old school CPU info.
Thanks Broken, that is some great information man! I am going to put that link in the original post for anyone needing info.

but where all of these stuff came from
you have pc junkyard?
Thanks, I wish I had a PC junkyard.
I used to have a small PC shop back in 2003 and ended up with peoples old timers but I gave away some and left some behind.
wow you guy's were talking about TYAN a while ago and i found this today xD
now on the nostalgia topic my brother has a laptop that i think it qualifies [ i even done a semi-ghetto fix for its hinges too], will edit post with pics later when i can
Well here it is Inspiron 2650, very solid lappy this one, got years of abuse and still works great except battery is dead
hinge cover broke so put nuts to tighten screws and hot glued it to keep everything in place, if i could i'd upgrade the CPU, RAM and HDD but they're hard to find. renamed pics to be self explanatory xD
CPU: Pentium 4m 2GHz | RAM: 2x 256MB samsungs
GPU: Geforce 2 Go 200 32MB | HDD: 30GB Hitachi pata
i was aiming for a Tyan Tiger board for my 940 plateforme but the Riowork is cheaper and have the same features plus come with 2 Opteron 270... now i just need to wait on Paypal ...
little family pics on the Shelf ... xD and i re assembled my AM2+ setup with the Grand Kama Cross ... WHAT A PAIN IN THE @SS to put it in a NSK3480 with the KAMA on it xD
Count me in. Making this post from my Athlon XP-M 2500+ @2.2Ghz 400FSB, Crucial Ballistix PC3200, geforce FX 5950 Ultra, Abit NF7-S and soundblaster audigy
Awesome m0nt3!!!! I actually have that exact motherboard that I picked up from The_Mad_Shot over a year ago. Awesome motherboards!!!
And of course I added ya to the original post.
I choose the Abit to replace my dying ASUS A7N8X, stuck with ABit till the stopped making motherboards. Always loved the orange color. Un fortunately, my 9800 non pro died, so i bought the 5950 ultra on ebay for 40 bucks several years ago, my friend killed my 2700+ (booted with out a heatsink lol) so he gave me his XP 2500-M and I no longer have the case I used (although thats the same PSU I have been using with it for 11 years). Wish I could find an Antec Plus 1080 AMG Silver.
I found another old timer.
