Re: AMD Socket A System

I'm reconsidering :D

I'm offering $35 including postage for only the board (box inside a 5 Kg satchel). I already got processors and memory.

What do you say?

Yea, call me stingy, but I refuse to pay that much for a little cable that should cost a dollar :/

Re: What retro related thing have you done recently?

That would work, but I'd love to be able to connect it to the PCB.

I have seen an adapter, but it's not cheap: http://gelidsolutions.com/products/inde ... d=11&id=60

Unfortunately I haven't found a cheap eBay knock-off, just the standard size fan splitters.

Re: What retro related thing have you done recently?

Today I've been cleaning up and replacing the fans on a Voodoo 5 I picked up. Not finished yet but looking forward to getting it working so that I can upgrade my Pentium 3 500 w/Voodoo 4. Currently Unreal Tournament could be a touch faster at 1024x768, although I'm not sure if that is a CPU limitat...

Re: Future retro classics?

My bet is really anything to do with Gaming and Windows XP. Windows 10 is causing more issues for XP games and I think this will just get worse over times. Newer drivers will cause issues and so on. Now the XP era is massive. Anything from a Pentium 4 or Athlon XP all the way to a Core i7 or AMD FX ...

Re: Phil's 3dfx Voodoo shootout project

V2 SLI, unless you're gaming at 640 x 480, the processor speed at that performance level doesn't matter much :)

Personally I do like to go with a ~ 1 GHz processor because there are other benefits, such as faster installation or loading times that come with a fast Windows 98 machine.

No longer needed - Motherboards and CPUs

I'm after a Socket 478 motherboard for Pentium 4 processors with the Intel 875 Canterwood chipset.

Some examples are ASUS P4C800 or Intel D875PBZ. Don't need box or accessories, just a board that works.

I'm also after some processors. Chasing the AMD Athlon 64 FX-60 for socket 939.
