Model would be handy. I suspect it would need ECC RAM.
Not a 386, but a crazy bargain none the less in Balmain. Best be quick.
Yeah they do. Doesn't seem like it was that long ago I was building servers with these CPU's but then I checked the Intel datasheet to see they were launched 11 years ago in Q1 2010. Damn it has been a while.
Last 10 years has been a blur for me in terms of CPU enchancement.
Had to remind myself a couple of years back that Core 2 was really really old!
Lol. I have an old Dell T3500 single CPU that I still use with that CPU, doesnt require ECC.
True. With Intel stuck on 14nm for what seems like forever and AMD only just now surpassing Intel in any meaningful way there really hasn't been a lot to get excited over these past 10 years in regards to CPU's.
Except the last couple of years though ... moving beyond 4 cores, in a high performant CPU, i'm not counting the AMD Bullsnoozer (potato class CPU).
Makes me want to go buy an i7 or Ryzen 7
Anyone in need of a SNES controller? This guy is breeding them.
I already have 2 SNES controllers and no console to plug them into.
You end up with strange stuff when you buy other people random junk boxes.
Invest now while they're easy to come by ;-)
These are Super Famicom controllers, and be wary that some PAL SNES models require modification to use them:
486 VLB board with CPU, RAM, cache, ISA video & controller card - listed as untested/not working and appears to have suffered some damage from the battery leaking. Might be worth taking a chance on for parts/repair.
Someone scooped that up quickly.
Q8400 PC here for $0 reserve: https://forums.overclockers.com.au/threads/old-working-pc-era-intel-q8400-quad-core.1298056/
I was tempted to grab this for myself, but have a couple of good SS7 boards already. Hoping someone here may grab it before I change my mind.
Oooof, the want is very very high!
I just ordered a couple of these NOS Aopen 350w PSUs. 175w for 3.3v & 5v combined should be enough to comfortably run older power hungry systems (Athlon + Geforce 4ti etc).
Nice complete Acer setup. 486? with SB16 onboard. Not listed under vintage, and not good keywords, so may stay a little off the radar...
What key words do you guys use on ebay to always find these systems? my usual searches for 486 + motherboard + old + computer + case + vintage
hardly bring anything good
ps I would put a bit on the Acer but its too far, case brings memories
Info on those models seems pretty light, 450d appears to designate a 486 DX2-50. Spec sheet on the back shows it original build with 4MB ram & 270MB HDD which fits with that era of 486. Build date appears to be 02/08/1995 or 08/02/1995, which also fits (would have been an entry level machine at the time).
The SB16 and creative quad speed CDROM were probably part of a multimedia kit added as an upgrade at some point.
Nice looking machine & appears to use PS/2 ports for the mouse and keyboard. I wonder if there's a VLB slot under that SB16....
