That is all popular overclocking stuff so it will all be really expensive.
$25 posted for a NOS AMD Athlon 64 939 3200+
$35 posted for a NOS Guillemot Maxi Studio ISIS - this is pretty cool.
(Please someone buy this before I do)
Prescotts are fine.
NF7-S combo: http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/Abit-NF7-S-socket-462-motherboard-AthlonXP-2600-2gb-DDR-/122031532558?
Very tempting, I'm holding off for a while though
Got the first one, knocked down a tad.. thanks
I'm guessing you cracked on the 2nd one
New ATI chip 939 crossfire boards
Your green beasty on it's way tomorrow
oooh! in oz already.
Well, let me know which of the many things of yours that are in my Garage, you'd like me to send in return
Shopping in AU you'll wait along time to gather all that
Abit IC7-Max3 Asus A7N8XE-Deluxe, these still go cheap......
Asus P4P800E-Deluxe, P4C800E-Deluxe, not looked at all
Abit NF7-S v2, sometimes cheap / not always
DFI Ultra II x2 sold in this forum " expensive anytime / anywhere "
BH-5 or TCCD DDR PC3200+ memory .........specific brands / types?
Radeon 9700pro ........... not see many / cheap
9800pro .......fair, still around
9800XT......not many getting expensive
GeForce FX 5800/5900/5950 Ultra ....... some around cheap. Ultra not cheap
Right, thanks for the information!
Would you say that the P4 bundle ($50) listed is a pretty good price, but the NF7-S a little over priced ($100 inc postage)?
Well, if anyone stumbles across anything I've listed, let me know! Keen to get some period correct retro builds together!
Interesting board, but without SLI support, a tough sell IMO.
They're not a bad board, seemed more stable at higher clocks than VIA boards.
I had the A8R32-MVP DLX back in early-mid 06, full blown SPCR spec build.
Have prices gone up Look I don't know that anyone in here would pay that. Seems to be double from 18 months ago.
Should I post up a Asus 478 gift with a Nf7 $100 shipped?
Didn't crack on the Guillemot, but it sold 25 mins after I posted it here so I assume someone grabbed it.
Whats to the right of Seasonic psu?
A have no doubts that it's a nice board.
I got two of these: http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/ASUS-A8V...724862?hash=item4b030ce8be:g:szEAAOSwx-9WvxwC
Used it to benchmark a lot of 939 CPUs. All the way up to FX series, and worked excellent. At that price, he combines shipping, you can't go wrong. Hope he'll get some more stuff in the future. Sometimes caps are shot, but that shouldn't put anyone off, just got to get good at replacing them
SLI back in the day was really exclusive to Nvidia, a bit of a pain when you're trying to build something period correct.
I'd say you can save a lot of money by looking outside of Asus and Abit. The Asus has the 865 chipset, that is so common like sand on the beach. Look for OEM, AOpen and other brands. Same goes for Socket A. nForce2 is nice, but there are many cheap VIA chipset boards. So for what the boards are, I wouldn't say they are overpriced, you will always pay a premium if you chase these brands
Haha VIA boards, cheap and cheerful I've had my fair share...
My boss gave me his old gear for free just this week, Athlon64 3000+ w/ 4x 512MB DDR400 and a nice Epox EP-9NDA3+ board, the mighty Nforce 3 yo! No bulging caps this time either
Very nice. I've had little issues with the VIA chipset, but on some boards the SATA controller doesn't support IDE mode, so you have to load the F6 Floppy driver to install XP.
Really odd, as another board can support it, so might just be a BIOS implementation or something like that. With the memory controller being integrated on the Athlon 64, I found performance varies very little between motherboards. Use dual channel memory with tight timings, 1T command rate and any board should perform very well.
With 939 I would go with PCIe hands down. AGP cards just don't do them justice, I saw very decent performance boosts, even on the slower socket 754 platform. Use an FX though and the boost gets massive.
Some of the 754 / 939 agp boards are fine Phil with single core cpu's.
Then just a mid range agp gpu. Let's face it those 3000-3800+ processors are still cheery cheep
But them sli pci-e 939 boards ......bang in the dual cores for the horsepower
3d2001se has the 462 machines doing 18K, then these ones 25K+ I'm guessing.
So there's plenty of range there.
