Any Slot 1/A cpus, video / sound cards, ram etc post them up and it will goto good homes here
Slap in a late model VIA C3 and you have even more flexibility (CPU VRM depending).
True. I'm personally after 1989-1994 era stuff, I know you can achieve compatibility with later hardware, but I have that nasty fetish obsession with the era I can't get rid of. Socket 2-5 and ISA stuff are scarce and unfairly priced everywhere. I also got broken parts for much $$ more than twice.
Are athlon xp / nforce 2 setups worthwhile for dos based stuff or are they too fast? I've advertised a bulk lot of boards and bits and bobs but wonder if I should just hang onto one good board, 2gb ram and an fx5950xt to go with it?
Also, ess audio drive over say an sb live?
It's been so long since I've done dos and himem and emm386 and config.sys etc
Phil the guru in here done a Sli Voodoo2 shootout video.
Technically processor from 800-1400 mhz was the sweet spot.
So a 462 machine is good for that. Thunderbird processor fit the bill nicely.
They are good all rounders win98 & XP.
fx5950xt excellent & collectible. Around 40-50 points. 9800pro about 60 iirc
That's a keeper in my book.
But for the dos an 1995 -1998 socket 7 machine I think is best.
For overall enjoyment.
Spotted a nice gpu online.......super collectible. That good I'd collect it.
PM OK for info.

Cool 286 laptop here, boxed + all accessories. Listed as not working but for 80 bucks it would be worth a chance that it could be repaired (if you were in the market for a 286 laptop of course)
I'd love a old laptop but one thing which scares me about them is the extreme lack of replacement parts. It's hard enough at times to get vintage desktop PC's up and running, but with laptop's (besides the really early "portables" which basically had a desktop board inside a small case, eg. IBM 5155) your dealing with proprietary components. You *really* need to know your stuff at a component level.
In saying that, could be something as simple as a dead power brick.
$29 posted for a NIB AMD 939 3200+
This is kinda cool, albeit pricey:
