View Full Version : $25.00

err, i mean $250 ;-)

ok, i wanna new ATX mobo/cpu
and i wanna intel
and it's gotta have 6 PCI and AGP (duh) and use pc133 (i have many sticks of that stuff lying around)
OC-ability is a must

there's SOOOO many choices, i dunno where to start

faster=better of course


will be running my current gear:
400w psu, radeon 7500, ata100 card, several drives (dunno how many i wanna leave in this system and how many i wanna move to the server yet), cdrw, cd/dvd, audigy mp3+, nic, scsi card (though i'll probably move to server); usb gamepad, camera and printer

Why don't you get something a little newer?

Very nearly you could get an epox 8kha, Athlon XP 1600, stock hsf, and 256 megs ddr...

ct_, leave it in my capable hands for a few days and I'll see what I can come up with ;)

"capable hands"? Yeah right! :)

ct_, leave it in my capable hands for a few days and I'll see what I can come up with ;)

I checked newegg.com and came up with a P4 S478 1.6A for $138 + 6.95 shipping, and the Asus P4B for $110 +10 shipping.
You're total cost is $264.95.

It's gonna be pretty hard to find SDRAM P4 boards with 6 PCI slots. I'd looked at one P4 by Epox, but it was DDR only.

Sorry about the delay - too much to do these days :sleepy:

OK, the AOpen AX4BS Pro is a nice board, but only has 5 PCI slots. The only SDRAM board I've seen for the Pentium 4 with 6 PCI slots is the Intel D845WN... which means no overclocking features.

Anyway the link is here: http://english.aopen.com.tw/products/mb/ax4bspro.htm

Good luck in the hunt! :)

ok, lemme try again

ONE mobo with -
INTEL (dual?)
6 PCI at least, AGP4x
1 ISA if possible
3 ram slots at least, DDR i guess
on-board RAID
excellent overclockablility
1 can flourescent yellow spray paint ;)

ONE cpu -
P4 not less than 1.6Ghz and good overclockability to go with the above board (must include heatsink and fan of course)

ONE stick of DDR -
512mb cuz it's so expensive...

03-12-2002, 06:24 AM
firstly, why do you NEED 6 PCI slots? secondly, if you do get 6 PCI slots, then don't expect to get an ISA on top of that. Good luck trying to find ISA anymore...

03-12-2002, 08:44 AM
ct_ has a problem with letting go of his old hardware and goin' with more modern technologies if that helps ya Beefy. ;)
It maybe a cost thing but who knows. :confused:

03-12-2002, 11:16 AM
yep - i don't wanna toss out a perfectly good isa modem if at all possible, and i don't wanna spen more $ for a PCI one...

so like i said, if possible - if not, oh well

ideas ppl?


03-12-2002, 02:09 PM
Well part of Intel's conformist policy that it pushes onto manufacturers was to drop the ISA bus so it would be almost impossible to find a board with one. External modems are much better these days than internal PCI ones anyway :smokin:

Good luck finding Utopia then!!! :wave:
