It is done! Needs some dust removal but other than that I think I have the fastest system a 15 year old could ever dream of. Video to come in the next few days.

Specs: Pentium II 450MHz, 100MHz FSB, 512KB L2 chache

            512MB SDRAM

            Dell Dimension XPS R450 ATX Motherboard

            Dell OEM 200Watt PSU (Came from the same system the motherboard did, XPS R450)

            Creative Labs Sound Blaster Live sound card

            30GB Segate PATA Hard Drive

            Video card: Unknown (When building the system I realized I need to use an older style AGP card so the one that is in there is a temp PCI card until I can               find the ATI card that was original with the XPS R450.

            Case: Unknown (I do know the company no longer exist.)

That is exactly what I have planned over the summer. I have another 2 Pentium III boards (One is a slot like yours and one is socket) idk what one I will use, most likley the slot one cause they are just bad ass or put an H110 GTX on the socket one  :D I will have to get 2x Voodoo cards though and a GeForce 3 for that to be perfect!

That "powerhouse" should be capable of running atleast windows XP....

 

However that win 98 setup screen did bring back some fond memories.

My Pentium III Machine that I have planned in the coming months will have Windows 2000 and Windows XP :), I tested XP and it did run surprising well but 128mb held me back.

Since microsoft is no longer making phones with Nokia branding on them, might start seeing less and less of them out in the wild. I wish windows phone would take off I love it. I also want to see a new premium windows Lumia phone in the future and not all these budget ones (not to say they are bad) but another 40mp camera model would be nice

If you can, get a Celeron 300A/333, they are very good for over clocking, and I've had both of mine (300A/333 respectively) match and beat Pentium IIs at the same speed (they even beat a Celeron 500 that was at 562MHz).
