Athlon x2 4800 s939 - Still have this. No idea what to do

You send this to a fellow [H]ard Forum member, who's name sounds like RublaRon, so he can finally ditch his old P3 1GHz... :D

Blur of many years, many Pentiums.. I can't even pretend to remember them. I do remember my first SMP excursion, the famed Abit BP6 with dual Celerons OC'd to 450 or 500mhz.

1 - First Pc I built for myself had a 70 Mhz Pentium
2 - 90 MHz Pentium
3 - 133mmx
4 - 166mmx
5 - 200mmx
--skipped the PII's.... something bugged me about having a nintendo cartridge for a cpu--
6 - started Overclocking with the celeron 300a (a 300MHz chip OC'd up to 450MHz was big back then)
7 - Switched camps with the Duron 600 and the pencil mod (OC'd to 900MHz)
8 - 1GHZ Thunderbird
9 - Atlon XP 2100 (oc'd to 2GHz even)
10 - Jumped back to intel with the E2180 (2.0 GHz chip OC'd to 3.2 GHz)
11 - Current Chip - E6850 Core 2 Duo (3.0 GHz chip OC'd to 3.8 GHz)

Those have been just my rigs. I've built a pile of PC's for family and friends along the way that I didnt bother to list.

Those where all my personal boxes. Mostly hand downs from my father when he would upgrade. The PIII 400 was the first PC I bought for my self. I think if i ever heard the whirrr of the ADAM's dual tape deck again I would fly into an uncontrollable fit of rage.:D
