  1. Show off your old and retro computer parts

    Will do. It's hard to find info like that on this old stuff. Someone somewhere out there must know... Try Reddit maybe?
  2. Show off your old and retro computer parts

    In digging around to try and find the retail price of these things, I saw some similar models went for upwards of over $6000 at the time. Unreal.
  3. Show off your old and retro computer parts

    Well with just windows 98 on the 1.35GB drive, "only" 500mb is free.
  4. Show off your old and retro computer parts

    And.... they both work!!! The 5000 has a cracked screen, but I knew that when I bought it. The 5100 fired up right into Windows 98! And it works quite well. lol. Have some possible "plans" for the one with the broken screen. The specs: 800 x 600 16bit colour display:
  5. Show off your old and retro computer parts

    The other one has a 1.35GB HDD. I know, massive for the time. lol
  6. Show off your old and retro computer parts

    Picked up these two beaut's today for $5 each. Compaq LTE 5000 and a 5100, circa 1989 and 1990, I believe mid-90's. One or both supposedly work. Haven't tried yet...
  7. Show off your setup!

    So yeah, that dual-Xeon HP Z400 workstation tower I picked up the other day... It did not have two E5620's as advertised (4 cores, 8 threads each). No. It has two X5650's (6 cores, 12 threads each!!!). And holy crap it mines really well. lol. Very pleasantly surprised.
  8. And this is why I don't race the AI in PC2.
  9. Show off your setup!

    Very cool! Just a quick tip; hot air rises. IMO, you should have those 3 bottom fans as intakes and have both rads as exhaust. This way you'd have only cool air entering the chassis and all the warm air exhausting out.
  10. That car is very momentum sensitive, because it's so low on power. So try being very smooth on the brakes and carry as much speed through the corners as you can. I have no idea about the AI in PCars 2 because I never race with the AI.
  11. Ubuntu 17.10 Is Now Available

    Check the Ubuntu forums (askubuntu) for a definite answer as I'm not sure.
  12. Ubuntu 17.10 Is Now Available

    That should be it.
  13. Ubuntu 17.10 Is Now Available

    Ah. Well, to each, his/her own.
