Great start on a collection there! The GTX770 and GTX680 are fun to benchmark and compare since they are very similar cards.
Always had a soft spot for the G92 based 8800GTS

Thanks, you can check the rest of my collection here :)

I almost forgot, I'm planning on rebuilding my 2005 PC, its motherboard died and I have kept the RAM and CPU from it. RAM is working, haven't checked the CPU yet. CPU is Athlon 3000+ Venice core, 2x512MB Geil DDR400 and GeForce 6600GT. I had a Gigabyte model, but this MSI looks good too.

2024-04-10-21-51-41-600.jpg2024-04-10-21-48-54-778.jpg

Forgot to check the GPU VRAM, but it seems like it's the 1.6ns version since it is apparently stable at 1230MHz. Core is a bit more average at 540MHz.

Thats a great collection. Looks like you have been scoring some deals.
Next on my retro to do list is a ~2005 build as well. Either socket 754 or 939 That brings back some memories.

So I'm rifling through my old parts looking for a suitable baseline to start my next retro build for AGP cards, going through cases, boxes of boards, cpu's etc, and I find a video card I didn't even know I had for the collection.

Gigabyte FX 5700 256M

1712790713892.png


I start adding it to the catalogue and it dawns on me the list is quite long and I should take a count... over 100 video cards now. Some say I have a problem, but a collector never stops collecting! still so many models I could name that I want to add to that list.

Get a new fan, cut the new fan diameter on the plastic shroud, drill on the cooler alu base, (3...depends) new holes for a new fan if it has 3 support points/nuts, done.

Alternatively you could source a reference 7800GS heatsink. As far as I can tell from the backside of your card, the screws' ground planes match those of a 7800GS.

No X58 on that list yet mate : (

over 100 video cards now. Some say I have a problem

Yeah, I've got prob maybe 50 cards, and mine all come boxed with their original retail packaging, so a lot of room is needed. Lucky I built a big shed outback : )

I also collect Sega Mega Drive games as it was one of my favorite consoles when I was like 12 years old and probably have close to 600 game's. Going for the full list. Has been ongoing on for 10 years + now...

And yes, I (we) have a problem : )

I got a HUGE load of stuff today, but I'll post the rest of those later. This was probably the best of those. :)



And I know it's missing its VRM heatsink, I'll figure something out (I hope that P6X58D-E's heatsink fits), the CPU is an i7-960. Of course it will have the X5675. :) Though it's not listed on Asus' supported CPU list, it still supports i7 9xx sixcores, so I must test at least.
edit: The RAM is 3x4GB Corsair Vengeance DDR3-1600 kit

What a collection! I'm short on space so it's basically cards only bar a couple that came in original boxes, and my personal semi recent purchases like a GTX 1080 and RTX 3080 with box.

I've bought bulk anti static bags, and then big rugged stackable tubs from a hardware store. If you guessed that the collection lives under my bed... You'd be right :D :roll:

This is the last time, I promise! :laugh:

aanyway, the Rampage worked as I tested it. Just need to improvise something for VRM cooling, I have those little heatsinks at least laying around..

Found this 775i65PE this Sunday... a bit limited CPU wise but it's a neat 775+AGP combo. There's a 631 Cedar Mill under that heatsink.

Not sure whether to build the AGP counterpart to my 939 Manchester A64 4600+ x2 build w/4GB of RAM (yes, 4GB worth of DDR1!) or just settle for something simple w/ HD3450 AGP.

Also, retro rig 2 electric boogaloo. Much more details to come, but suffice to say it's fun to be back on AGP!

That would be the chipset limitation if I remember right... (P4M800 Pro, the bane of my existence...) - I would ditch DDR2 and go with a 865 based 775 mobo depending on the CPU used - if C2D/C2Q is your plan, ConRoe865PE or 775i65G rev 2 and 3 would be suited. If instead you plan on using a Cedar Mill/Presler CPU, look for about any retail mobo w/ 865PE that sports a 775 socket. (there are plenty of choices from what I can see - there's even a DFI Lanparty flavor in that regard)
