Bought this marvel of engineering off the forum Querty. Check out them clean lines
Northwoods went up to 3.4Ghz. SL793 and SL7KV are the sspecs to look for.
Ordered an Athlon 64 4000+ for socket 939 with San Diego core. This CPU was something I really wanted back in the day.
I was gaming with a budget Asrock S754 board, and overclocked Sempron processor I never ended up getting the chip because Core 2 Duo came out and I went with a E6600.
I remember how that caused huge price drops with all the AMD CPUs.
Those that frequent the "how much was your last power bill" thread will have kittens if it does.
A boxed Hercules 3d Prophet 4000XT arrived today. $18 delivered on ebay.
Checked my PO box hoping for some goodies for the weekend, but nothing has arrived
EDIT: Found a X1950 Pro AGP locally for $25 and bought it right away. That's a pretty fast AGP card because the 6600 GT is holding the faster AGP systems back a little, unless you want to benchmark at only 640 x 480
Nice buy. I was ready to bid on that card on eBay, completely forgot about it.
Saw this and couldn't pass it up: http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/CPU-Motherboard-RAM-and-video-card-/131747046183?
And Shane says there's nothing good on eBay Australia!
only a bargain if it works!
Item specifics says it works.
Description says it works.
You are a ray of sunshine.
@atmo Great buy!
Haven't seen an AGP 7950GT before, that's a mint card.
The first of these cheap motherboards arrived. The packing was ok, cardboard sheets, no real box, will see if it survived.
Condition looks very good, clean and caps look fine too.
Congrats Atmo I am proud of you son
LoL find another buy like that in a year. The gpu is $100 alone.
Was a stellar purchase that bundle!
Agreed. Many s/h purchases can be rubbish.
Power is power, you get to know him.
And now were all on the Amd bandwagon mostly. Some of my crap arrived from the US. Bnib mostly " leaked & bulged caps free " for me to fix
Big ass 4700uF caps are gonna cost a bit dammit.
Was a strange purchase this one. Thought the Tyan was not bundled & off to side of seller pics. Guess why not pic's of the Msi in the sale. Only description was NEW.
oh stop your bitching.
its more difficult to buy the replacement caps then it is to actually replace them.
Oh querty you are getting feisty
rs-online is your friend, see what they send me Think I'm fine
x4 cartons of golden nectar there so you must be dedicated.
ill have to give them a try sometime.
usually get mine via digikey.
It's an expensive hobby collecting Quert as you know.
Atmo's purchase was great value.
But the rarer parts like these socketA are $30US & that was busted down.
Factor a x1 part shipping express from US then your looking @ $55+ AU.
Then the decent big caps $2 a pop like Panasonic's & easy $15 on the smaller caps. That's a $100 board right there & still untested.
It's a gamble big time on a part most of the public 99.99% consider worthless.
RS Online are awesome m8. Free ship in a satchel & fast. So spend up with them, recommended
Heads up on the cheap GA-K8VM800M, it posted straight away. Flashed the latest BIOS and it's even a revision 2 board
Was unlucky with the socket bracket, one of the hooks snapped right off
Some massive tension on clips with aftermarket heatsinks.
Don't beat yourself up Phil, may have been partly weakened by previous user.
