It works fine, wish it had a Venice core or something else, at the time I built it it was a smokin machine, nostalgic!!!!!!!!

I might find a use for it.

9800 Pro and everything...you, sir, are my hero.

Now...flash that Pro to an XT, and then, find an X800 somewhere.

Throw a couple of big drives into it, add a TV card and make it a media server. That's what I did with my old Athlon 5000 rig. It works great, and dirt cheap, too.

PATA, really? I still have a few of those drives around my house somewhere.

Anyone here still using dip switches?

Wow, I don't doubt that running 7 on that thing would be pretty awesome!

My old rig had a 2.8Ghz pentium 4 with a gig of DDR2 RAM, then it went to 2.5Ghz and then at the end, it only had like 768MB of RAM! And it actually ran Windows 7 better than Xp not going to lie.
