Guys, does anyone of you in UK and could donate a socket 478 cpu to me? I'm trying to build a retro build, and one of my celerons gone bust after i transferred it to my newly bought mother board. It dosent work in the old one either now... ;(
I'll pay for the postage.
I have a Celeron D, 2.40GHz/256/533 you can have for shipping (or you can collect if you are near to the Eastern District of Northampton, seeing as you are in Northants).

Well your offer is better than mine. I could still ship 2 P4s though (1.5 and 1.7 GHz) from NL to you in a bubblewrap envelop.

erf i have some P4 800 in 478 (2.8 and 3.0 EE HT) but unfortunately they are "status unknown" due to : no compatible mobo to test (and Swiss post is a PITA for international shipping )

On the off chance that you see this in time, I will be in town outside Sheinman Opticians (top of Abington Street) at a demo from 3:00 for a couple of hours. I'll bring the chip in case you make it there. You will know me as I'll be the woman in a wheelchair, with my hair tied back :) Otherwise, just PM me and we can arrange something.

À guy in quest for something. A nice generous handicaped woman. Nice....who knows. Suddenly the guy disappears, the police don't suspect thé woman until they discover her true identity as....Deb the web. A cold blooded killer who want your brain to feed her machiavelic computer who crave for more and more memory.

Soon in a theatre near you! ;)

Finally getting that GF4 Ti4600, that trade has delayed like hell. Had just to get some cash since face 2 face trade, guess I'll need to go to the nearest ATM in few minutes. :D

edit: Also bought another 2x4GB HyperX kit for my main PC :toast:

Yeah, the GF4 Ti4600 works! I had to change few caps since few were in bad condition.

Now I'll test that Asus K8V SE Deluxe + A64 setup. :toast:

Awesome 9700!!! The Ti4600 was one of my all time favorite video cards! I remember buying one to attend a LAN party when UT2003 first came out. LOL. Cost a boat load at the time. :laugh:

Don't think so that that's the problem since it was missing the battery when I got it (so bios was resetted).. Well, I have dozens of DDR1 memory modules so I can try if it's about memory.. :toast:

Yep, that would be my next guess. Some older boards are picky about memory. I have had several Asus and MSI boards that were that way.

Got this card coming soon



It's an AccelGraphics AccelSTAR II, with Permedia 2 chipset and 8 MB SGRAM. My first 3D Labs chipset card. I collect mostly vintage graphics cards and the hardware for testing them.

It'll probably be a few weeks before I am able to take decent pics myself, so until then I will post pics from eBay when I buy cards :)

I think the DB26 was for a breakout cable that had another VGA output along with composite and S-video.
