Socket A, anybody?

Discussion in 'Abit' started by Airman Thunderbird, Jul 29, 2007.

  1. I've got an extra NF7-S v2.0 and in looking for a Socket A processor
    notice they're about as scarce as hen's teeth, and expensive when you
    find them. What gives?

    Because there are alot of people just like you out there. Newer socket
    A setups are still robust enough to run just about anything except
    resource-consuming games. That means everyone is trying to eek the last
    few years of life out of their systems before being forced into upgrading.

  3. I guess, just seems silly that I can buy an X2 3800 Athlon cheaper than
    a 3000XP.

    if you're looking for 3000+ speeds at a cheap price, then you have several
    options. Buy a cheap Barton core mobile XP-M and run it at 3000+ speeds or
    faster. Or get a Duron 1800 and set the FSB to 166 for 2250MHz. You can
    but either of these new for under $50. pricewatch.com

    I have a PIII 450 that I will never use again. If interested, contact me
    offline.

    You're correct. Thanks. What I have must be a Slot A. It's about 6" x 2"
    x 2" and the connector looks like a DIMM. I apologize for not reading the
    OP more carefully.

    ROLF, you don't have a Slot A, no such beast. You have a Slot 1, hence my
    other post.

    Or maybe you do have a Slot A, which would be a rarity and maybe worth
    something ;-)

    OK, I did google for Slot A but got nothing.

    Though since yours is a Pentium, it'd still abe slot one wouldn't it?

    Why don't you try giving it to some computer charity.
