So you know those times when you get that old P4 trying to run windows 7 they got from a relative or some guy they know at work with a 10 year old IDE drive and 128mb of ram that's so full of viruses it won't even post, haven't you always wanted to just smash it and tell them to get a new one?
Well I work in scrap metal processing, and since monday I've been breaking down the 6 or 7 pallets of old computers we got in awhile ago, mountains of old P2 and P3 slot procs along with a ton of P4's that look to have come from a school, most of the outdated pre-builts are taken apart with a screw gun, and a hammer, pretty awesome.
There were some gems hidden in the crap pile as well, I'll probably be starting a build log on the K7 frankenbox build, so far I have an Asus K7V8X-LA, an Athlon XP 2500+, an Athlon XP 2400+, an Athlon XP 2800+, an old Quadro 4, a GeForce 6800 GT OC AGP, 2 gb's of Infineon DDR-400, and old Antec Case, an Antec 350w PSU, and a SoundBlaster Audigy 2, looking like a fun little old school box right now, along with an S939 Athlon 64 X2 4200+ for my brothers computer and a GeForce 4600TI for my parents computer.
I think the newest comp I've seen in that pile was a Celeron D or the Athlon X2 I got, there were a few relics from there late 80's and a few monster gaming rigs from the P2 / P3 era in there though.
So this week at work has been a fun one so far and will most likely continue to be awesome, and if anyone near the metro detroit area needs some vintage parts, hit me up haha
