MOBOs-- Asus A7NBX socket 462

Asus MZV MX socket AM2

EliteMT socket7-this thing has ISA slots....

CPUs-- AMD K6-2

 

Im going to storage 2marow to find the other cpus, i think i may have sum other mobos also.

Socket 462 is AMD for the Athlon XP CPUs in socket 462 ( I still have a few of these)

 

Socket 7 is BOTH Intel and AMD depending on the board... and Handle P-II Intel Socket 7 and AMD K6-2 450/500mhz CPUs

 

I had a couple of these crossbreed boards and gave them to a member here....

 

there is Also a Slot type P-II

 

 

Definitely fun to play with...

 

I liked playing with the Socket 7 stuff....I had Tyan boards that ran both Intel and AMD and just needed a jumper switch to run either or...those were the days

Wouldn't say your parts are exactly "old" and I'd also say, but then again neither are all mine in my 98 build... but still...hummm copy cat? :biggrin:

 

I say just put all the oldest parts together and see what works. lol.

old school peripherals like Printers and Modems

Video cards, sound cards, etc. Pretty much anything. :)

LOL. I did that. I have AMD athalon classic/thunderbird (cant remember) running 212mb ddr 200 an old old nvidia card with no stickers or anything on it so no idea what it is. An 150w psu. 2 floppy drives and "High Speed" Compact Disc reader. Runs XP fine. Until i install any programs then it starts down hill. Looking for a copy of 95 or dos to put on it.

lol. Couldn't find my copy of 95 lying around -- bet it's back in CO with some of my other old computer junk... however, did just sell a copy of ME on ebay for $10.00 last week. lol. The absolute worst OS ever!! at least from windows...
