    Why you do this? :)

    Edit: Also, how is that GUS Max coming along?

    I have the GUS, but the repair shop says:

    "
    GF1 chip seems to be dead
    it halts the system during initialization
    when setting the correct IRQ
    "

    So the question becomes: If you swap the GF1 chip out (it is socketed), does the card work?

    Erek I love your posts, but man you make me happy I don't collect old hardware.

    The pricing on this stuff.

    Fun to look at though :p

    I collect old hardware... I just refuse to pay stupid prices like that. Just takes longer to find what I want at a price I am willing to pay.

    I actually meant: Are you going to try a known working GF1 chip in the GUS Max?

    I believe my original GUS is socketed. I really thought they all were, excepting the GUS ACE...
