...FtW...not sure if running old cards is a hobby or you do it for the ProCup at HWBot, but I got a couple of old cards here...like a ATI Radeon 9800, another slightly younger ATI Radeon (I never used it but it's an All-in-Winder w/TV) and an older Winfast Nvidia, circa 2000endish

gpu benching is cool...you can re bench every time a better cpu comes out. thumb.gif

More of a hobby, although all hardware gets hardware points. The pro cup is big money hardware, I still need better gear to compete.
I haven't benched agp cards in a while, would have to dig out the pIII rig for those. It would be cool if they made a new board with an old school agp slot in it...

This is part of it as well. New more efficient cpus can get better scores with the old cards, & they do still have competitions for older hardware.

...indeed biggrin.gif - I much prefer it over other benching at HWBot, as much as those have their own appeal...and since I find myself with a new CPU soon, I can rerun a whole bunch of things...mind you that 3970X will have to go to work in an encryption biz application in the fall, so I do not want to break it...

...the 3770K / MaxVEx on the other hand will experience 'a much colder climate' soon biggrin.gifsonic.gif

Good call wink.gif

I'll try to get a pot as soon as possible, this chip is begging for some -78c love.

...I even throw in a working AGP board and CPU...the board is an 'Abit'...just don't try to get an updated BIOS for it as the company went bust, due to some 'financial irregularities' as I recall

...you would do me a favour as all the old stuff has to go somewhere, before it gets chucked...so if you're interested...

Anyone on OCN in the US offer a delidding service? I wish I could do the wood-n-hammer method of deliding, but I don't have a bench vise. Or a bench sturdy enough for one.

Seriously...I'll mail someone my 3770k along with a prepaid return label. As long as he/she has exp. doing the job I'm down for it. I'd have to order another 3770k though to use while my current one is away.

I'm gonna try the vise thing when I get a new 3770k...

As for the old stuff, I could give those some love, but shipping can get pricey.

...yup, and FtW lives fairly close...otherwise, you too are more than welcome to it at $0, though you would have to arrange / $ shipping...British Columbia to Argentina...
