Lol a close friend of mine has a garage wall of the 755's. We usually put a lightweight linux distro on them and put them for sale in our shop.

I would go ahead and upate the bios now with the current chip in it. Then when the new chip is installed, it will recognize what it can. smile.gif

What about the 745? I had one hooked up to my TV for a long time. They were retiring them from a lab at school I used to work for. Great steam streaming box!

Right, I received the 915 and dropped it in, it worked and was recognised without the bios update so I will leave it well alone

Got my hands on a 390 with a bad power supply. The guts were simple mATX, so I put it into a Silverstone low profile home theater case with an actual ATX power supply. Tossed in a 750ti low profile and it is a decent little gamer for some lower end and older titles! I did end up having to do some serious modifications to get the power button and LEDs on the case working, as well as ridding of the errors at boot (for lack of USB2.0 cabling, front panel cabling, and switch cabling. All said and done, pretty well worth it!

My little dell sports a Q6600 that has the electric tape mod for 1333fsb so 3.0ghz 8GB of 800mhz ddr2 and a 980ti. Did a custom mount for the air cooler and used a visiontek 450w juice box for the power needed for the GPU it games fine with no issues.

You can overclock the Q6600 with the tape pin mod on any of them.
