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.

Another cool site for vintage EPROMs.

I bought some AMD gold EPROMs on eBay, waiting for the mail man to deliver them.

I am thinking of making some necklaces out of them, maybe a ring depending on the actual size.

Cool man. I had an old HP almost identical to that one. Purchased it brand new with Windows 98SE and about a year later the motherboard fried and took the hard drive with it. Ended up junking the whole system. :banghead:

That's sad :(

Still I'm having kinda problem to decide what I'll do with it, or what components I'll be getting to it. 256MB RAM and something GeForce 2-GeForce 4Ti class GPU maybe? :)

And I'll still need to find that P3-800 if I'm still having it, and I'll just hope that the motherboard supports it. :D

Probably depends on the front side buss of the chips. It should support an 800 though.

Scorched Planet (Full), Destruction Derby 2 (Full)+ Thunder Truck Rally(Demo) and MechWarrior2 31st century combat (Full) including the booklet for MechWarrior. All wearing the brand Matrox on it. Oh and also found a 3.5" disk with the game Arkanoid. :)

I guess it works with P3 800E, since I found out that models with 933 and 1GHz P3:s are also exist. Well, gotta find that CPU and have to get the RAM and some GPU ;)

Yes, sound storm was amazing for its time. But it only functioned through digital, Analog output was still controlled by the ALC662 AC'97. The NF-7S was a replacement board to my A7N8X )non delux so no soundstorm) and I have had that audigy since 2001 since I had analog surround and my old 1.3Ghz t-Bird motherboard did not have integrated surround.

I'm thinking of getting a A7V600-X for my new Athlon XP 3200+.
I've also got 1GB of RAM.
What do you think,is it worth installing the following systems on those HDDs?Also,which one should be the primary,secondary HDD from those 3?

HDDs:
1.Seagate ST310211A 10GB - Windows 7 Lite "Cocos"
2.WD Protege 8GB - Android 4.4 x86 "Kitkat"
3.WD "Caviar SE" 80GB (SATA I and II at the same time,and it's the original drive,not the Blue version which is SATA II only) - Linux OS,I leave you name one so I can get it.

At least,I learned my lesson to never get Soltek again.Last time (3 days ago,Sunday)I got a SL-75FRN2-RL (which has nForce 2 Ultra chipset and SATA controller)and it won't POST.
Thank god that the A7V600-X has also SATA ports.Anybody know what SATA controller it uses?
