I kind of want to get one of my CRT's out and try gaming on it, but I don't think I've got any FPS's except maybe Doom3 and I'm not sure I've got a GPU sufficient to run that game at 1600x1200 85hz max details that has a VGA output...I need to check my remaining junk lol.

Is that an Inwin case looks like one I had back in the day.

No idea. Not my dual PIII rig.

That's a chipset limitation 

my Z61t has Intel 945 and can only address 3gb, even if it's using a 64 bit core2duo rather than the 32 bit core duo in it 

My laptop with its 965 can't even boot with more than 2GB installed. Just like my older one with the 915.

Mine will boot with 8gb, still won't use more than 3

ive got 4gb in it right now

bios has no issues with it, the worthless chipset just refuses to use over 3gb 

Well both laptops are Asus, and the later one does seem a bit backwards for a 2007 machine. Its a limitation in the BIOS itself in the case of my F3L (the older A3H has a Pentium M and started with a Celeron M...more than 2GB is pointless anyway).
My dead and gone 2006 Tecra M5 (came with Core Duo T2600, later went to Core 2 Duo T7600) could use and boot with 4GB RAM.

I got this old Dell Dimension 4600 I build to max 2004 spec.

Pentium 4 HT 3.4Ghz

2Gb 333Mhz RAM

Radeon X850XT 256Mb

250Gb 7200rpm SATA 1 HDD

400w aftermarket PSU

USBx4 2.0 PCI card

A custom paint job and a hole in the side for extra air flow, the thing gets pretty loud. I'd like to get 400Mhz RAM, but too expensive.

I had a freaken Lg r410 laptop 14"  (2008)

it had a core 2 duo p8600 2.40ghz , 9400M gs ,4 gb of ram , 320 gb hdd .

one year ago it made me really proud when it ran win 10 

i few weeks later thew mobo died (idk why maybe the gpu was dead)

i replaced the mobo but that one only had intel graphics , which made me really sad .

then i took out one of those 2 gb ddr2 SODIMMS and dumped it into a 1 gb ram acer aspire one (D255E) .

so both of em rocks win 10 but the prob that my Lg only has 3gb of ram (weird i know)

anyone of u guys had an Lg laptop from that era ?

cuz they are kind of rare

If you can hear silence, you will know what I am talking about .

The void is not empty it just kills you since you cannot hear it's warning.

If you can hear silence, you will know what I am talking about .

It says:" you need to be in survival mode to know my secret"

So let's invest in breaking bedrock in survival, instead of killing each other in PvP.

32 bit Windows XP can only address 3 GB of RAM.  Windows 7 can usually address a little more but still less than 4 GB.  Most manufacturers never bothered putting more than 3 GB in a 32 bit system for this reason.

My apologies.  The p8600 is 64 bit.  I have a Core 2 Duo T7600 from a year earlier and it only has 32 bit instruction set.

Well I'll be damned.  I tried installing Linux Mint 64 bit and the install failed. Said I needed a 64 bit CPU.  I will have to revisit that.  Unless for some reason the chipset doesn't support it?

Maybe it's Core not Core2?

Just finished running GeekBench on it after finally getting a 150W power adapter for it.  The low score is while running on the 90W. 

 

It would appear it is definitely a Core 2 Duo T7600.  Also I saw the CPU itself when I scraped off the cement that was parading around as thermal paste.

Well a Core2Duo should be 64bit, I ran Win7 64bit for a long time on an E8400 and now on a Pentium E6800 both with 4GB or more RAM all working.

I must to find a 150W power adapter for my ThinkPad T61p (Core 2 Duo T9500 2.6GHz and Quadro FX 570M => 80 W TDP for these 2 chips together). My original power adapter is 90W.

If it only calls for a 90W I doubt you'd see a performance increase.  Mine shipped with a 150W but I only had a 90W on hand.  The laptop forced the CPU to 1ghz because of insufficient power.
