Guys we should probably start a thread of vintage parts for exchanging between each of us. But don't do like some adds here and not telling where you live :p
Like me I have some 478, 754 and 775 cpu, DDR 266,333,400 DDR2 533, 667, 800ram ,some cards and other stuff and I'm from Canada.

Trouble with that is we would have to follow the TPU guide lines and post in the "For Sale" forum.

We started to do that in the World Community Grid forum and got that shut down right away.

It would be tough to manage a for sale thread with multiple posters I would imagine. If the original poster was a moderator it would be a ton easier.

Yesterday a parcel with 5 older graphic cards came in. Nothing really exciting. I just wanted the VLB- card for the 486er.

Trident TVGA8900CL, ISA 1200.JPG Trident TVGA9000B, ISA 1200.jpg Western Digital WD90C30-LR, 1200.JPG Cirrus Logic CL5420-V5 ISA 1200.jpg

I saw the Canopus Voodoo-Graphics Card had a fan installed, and as the miro has the same pcb,
I put a fan on a miro HISCORE 3D. Maybe it helps and the card lives a bit longer.

A thing I have to invent, Voodoo Graphics Quad SLI ... :p

Damn nice photography also Backfire!!

What are you using for your background? And what lighting are you using?

I also like the style of font your using on them. Pretty classy looking.

Hehe, I'm using a Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ7 digicam and the background is a white sheet of thick paper. The lighting is various, from an officedesk- lamp up to two 100W halogen spots.
The magic is the software. I'musing IrfanView & PhotoScape which are both freeware. I'll show you a picture as it comes from the camera.

demo 800.jpg


I just reduced the size to 800px width.

edit: the name of the font in the upper left corner is "neuropol", the name of the font for the "Backfire" sign is "flexsteel".

Wow, I'll have to check into the software!
I am using a Lumix DMC-FZ40. Very awesome camera. Got a smoking deal on it from one of the local members T_ski here on TPU.

That Asrock upgrade mobo was cool, I remember when those hit the market. Too bad that almost nobody bought the upgrade cards, instead everybody just upgraded their motherboards. :D

edit: At least those are damn hard to find as used ones here in Finland. :(

Damn I'm drunk as hell but I',m listening to Doom3 theme from youtube and I think should I begin to play it again.. Damn it was nice when I ran it first time smoothly, I had an Asus 6800LE @ 15/5 pipes & 380/950 clocks.. overclocked like mad :love:


edit: I simply need more coffee and cigarettes, don't want to be drunk anymore. :)
edit2: Eating some delicious chicken seems to help too :)

i played D3 and Q4 (and Eve Online xD) on my Athlon XP (Barton@2.25~) rig KT6V with a Geforce FX 5900 ultra and 1 gb RAM never had any lag or such (iirc i played it with all settings at max) :D

you coul've afford the 9800XT (or not) if you took (or kept) a XP instead of the 64 (BTW winchester or Clawhammer?) who was a bit useless without 4gb and more RAM (Doom3, also, didn't had a 64bit exe right? ) but the 64 had SSE2 instr.
