Ok, here's another one, I'm bored, and I wouldn't mind finding out how much its worth.

At school, my teacher gave me a pc that someone gave him, its an old P1 system, but I modded it to where it has a 450mhz amd k6-2 @55mhz fsb or something....instead of a pentium S 200mhz.
I has an ASUS P/I P55T2P4 motherboard, and the motherboard actually has a usb header, however no connector for it, so It can run usb peripherals if you can find the little cable for it.
it has 32mb of ED0 ram, I'm not sure if you can find bigger sticks...but there's 4 sticks of 8mb edo ram in it. do they make 16mb edo sticks? if so I'll try to find some.
Like I said before, its running a 450mhz Amd k6-2 in it, I can possibly overclock this to 500mhz, so it'll have a 75mhz fsb.
It has a 6gb quantum fireball hard drive, and an S3 Virge vga card. it also has an ISA sound card(Don't know what kind) and a 10/100 ethernet card(Don't know brand)

It fully detects the amd k6-2, and it supports up to a 130gb hard drive with the custom bios that I downloaded.

so guys, appraise away


OH and it's running Damn Small Linux as its os atm, and it flies.

also if you could, I dunno if this is against the rules, could you tell me how much the old 200mhz p1 would be worth...I think it could possibly be a collectors now.

Down in the basement I have, 1 commadore 64, 1 commadore 128, 3 P-1 (133:166:200) and 1 P-1 233mmx the P-1's are obsolete now days and I doubt E-bay would bring the price up much more? The commadores however may be true relics. Although P-1's are pretty much useless, if I had 20-30 of them I could look like I was a folding king. Just joking around.


Great job on that mod wish I knew how to do that when those P-1's were viable. I think you would be best suited to keep it as a keepsake and in 20yr's or so all of us may wish we had several collecting dust in our basements...

guys guys..that mod was nothing...all you do is mod a few jumpers to where it takes so many volts...and then since the k6-2 reads the multiplier on the board a whole different way, you get a 450mhz machine, out of a 150-200mhz p1 machine, and 3d now instructions, they say if you put a couple of old pci voodoos in these things in SLi they work awesome, you could play cs on this old thing. after all this, you flash the bios and bam, you have a pretty decent system. It ran win2k not too good...but it ran DSL linux like a charm.

also...commodore 64's are obsolete as well, and hard to find. almost like P1's. so I'd think they were collectors.
