    If you want to use agp you can get plenty of modern boards with it for example:

    AM2NF3-VSTA
    4CoreDual-SATA2

    Or you could just use pci, any pci versions of the geforce 5 series or radeon 9000 series would do windows 98 just fine. There is even pci express to agp adapters.

    You can still get current boards with isa if you want you could build a current 4790k with a isa soundblaster.

    You seem to be objecting but I can't get a handle on why. Is that just your thing?

    I don't like when people advertise a youtube channel every second post, especially when its just kinda pointless. Congratulations you installed windows 98 on a computer, but its not a achievement you can install it on like any computer made since the 1990's.

    If your going for period correct this is wrong, if your going for fastest possible while being software compatible this is wrong. You guys shouldn't be encouraging this guy when all his doing is spamming youtube links to try and make money.

    You have the wrong idea bud. He does this to help others get the retro bug.
    As if he'd make a killing on 478 computers :lol:

    You should really change your nick. For a partybear you're one miserable old bastard.

    As for YouTube, I'm not much into writing, I like making videos, I'm a very visual / auditory person. Many find them helpful, some don't, no big deal, nobody is forcing you to watch them, if you've got nothing nice to say, don't say it.

    As for $$$, it's peanuts and goes towards my website with drivers, downloads and lots more to come. I guarantee you that I give a lot more than I get, which is foremost people's appreciation and the feeling of having helped out someone.

    The P4C (2.4, 2.6, 2.8 and 3.06GHz) range had hyper threading.

    I stand corrected; was only thinking of the 400MHz and 533MHz FSB Northwoods, totally forgot about the 800MHz HT variants.

    Who the hell cares? This ain't your thread. In the years I've been reading Phil's posts / watching his vids he's been nothing but good natured and genuinely interested in helping people out.

    God forbid someone post actual some content, rather than just bitching and moaning... Right?

    Don't think Phil is racking in the Youtube millions with a few hundred to maybe a thousand views per video.

    Hold onto it if you can. A few years ago i threw out a lot of old stuff because no one here wanted it and i couldn't keep it. Some of it is sought after now. I'd take it myself but the house is on the market and storage is full so I understand if you have to throw it :(

    I wanted to get these Asus SS7 boards a few weeks ago, but then the seller took them down :( Would have been nice to have.
