Yay for Frankenstein computers!
lol..vampy....i do the same...i even named it I'm currently on Xeocube 1.0....2.0 will be vastly better since it'll eb watercooled, and 3.0 should move up to RAID 5
Digitalis 2.85, hehehe. I only bump the first number with a CPU/mobo upgrade.
Our main PC hasn't been updated for awhile. It's been about 8-10 months.
Our main PC:
AthlonXP 3000 (Barton)
1gig PC3200 RAM
BBA Radeon 8500DV
21" CRT monitor
about a half a terrabyte of harddrive.
...a whole slew of printers, scanners and VCR's and other stuff.....
It's due to get a video card upgrade REAL SOON. It will be a 9800 AIW. Should happen within a month.
My bro has been considering upping the CPU to a 3200 to get the FSB up on it, and the 3000 will be handed down to me. Of course, I'd have to upgrade my motherboard to go to that CPU, no big thing. I think I could sport the cash to get a new motherboard when I'd be getting a free CPU upgrade.
yea, pretty soon im gonna be getting a new proc/mobo p4 combo for real cheap...itll lift that HORRIBLE bandwith wall on my pc right now...i have a 166mhz bus LOL . im getting a new case to match, and new ram...its gonna be a whole different animal
i'm holding off as long as possible... i am either waiting for ABIT to release a MAX3 series revision 2 with the KT880 chipset.... OR waitting for abit to release a max series with a PCI-EX abilities
you're saying 166mhz is too slow?
here, have my non-ddr 100mhz...
i've got some 1mb sticks of some achient 1989 24 pin ram? (think it's 24 with no notches)
i got ome 8MB EDO over there......along with a buncha 486s on the original intel mobos w 4x CDRoms
lol YEA im saying it's too slow. if i had yours, i would've said 'WAY TOO' slow lol
Built the main rig last April 2003,but just added the Abit Mobo,XP3200, 1 512MB OCZ 3200,and the X800PRO.
that's 30 pin... back when simms were new... they started with 256kb simms which were "value" priced at just under $30 a pop. at that time, one of my friends bought 4 4mb simms for a grand total of $640.
pulled open our tandy 1000... has a 256kb massive card in it... (size of todays mobos).... still had a price tag on it... $1200
Right at 3 months. Upgraded from an Athlon 1.2 that I had been doing upgrades to as time went on. New components in this system are the MB, CPU, water blocks, memory, and DVD Burner. I make a lot of small upgrades until my system is pretty well maxed out, and use as much of the old system as I can.
When I do upgrade the MB/CPU I tend to make big jumps. 8086 --> 486SCL 40 --> K6 233 --> Athlon 1.2 --> Athlon64 3400+
