My System Specs

Default Blast from the past

Well I was bored today so I decided to setup some old hardware I had lying around. Ran a nice slimmed down XP, basically barebones.

It's a ASUS P3B-F, Pentium III 450MHz, bunch of random SDRAM of 100/133 speeds, equating to 576MB total and a GeForce FX 5900 Ultra 256MB.

Anyways, maybe we could start up something here if any of you guys have other "old" hardware lying around. By old, I mean stuff before P4 and Athlon 64.

Damn, great results from the OC!

Been a few years since I've run 3DMark `01, and Aquamark. (Had a hell of a time with Aquamark until I found the patch).

That PI score is faster than my X2 4600+. I probably have a PIII Celeron but I have to dig it out.

That's an amazing Super-Pi score!!! HTH did you get that with a PIII?????

That's better than my E6420 @ stock on an Asrock Frankenboard, and 3 seconds better than I had with my heavily OC'd 3700+ on a DFI Ultra-D....
