        I kind of want a case like that for a sleeper build. Good find anon.

        For how many people who want old beige cases, you'd think at least one manufacturer would heed the opportunity.

          beige and translucent colorways cases would be amazing. I am so sick of glass gaymer bullshit.

            Preach, brother. The whole point of PC building is to customize it to your liking, but it feels like cases in particular have all collapsed into a monoculture devoid of alternatives.

              I kick myself daily for throwing out my translucent colorways PC case. I thought they would last forever and I could keep getting soulful cases. I was so wrong. We need to go back...

                Since nobody makes them anymore and eBay garden gnomes want upwards of $200 for good examples, I wonder how feasible it would be to simply spray paint a "modern" case. For instance, the N400 has the anatomy of a traditional case (7x internal 3.5 bays, 1x external 3.5 bay, 2x 5.25 bay) and I could sort of imagine it in beige. Maybe pull an LGR and stick some vinyl woodgrain texture on the ribbon where the power button and USB ports are.

                yeah I am not paying that much, they can eat a bag of shit. I will deal with my $50 PC case from NZXT and get over it. I am sure some company will come out with something soulful eventually.

    what P-III chipset/motherboard lets you use 4GB of RAM?

    if it's some kind of high-end server board, maybe it is worth a bit more (though still not 640 USD)

      he made it up, and is too young to know 4GB ram is excessive for a P3 board
      it's possible though, pic related can do 4GB ram

      • 4 weeks ago

        the p3 cant even support 4gb of ram, even the slot 1s could technically see 4gb of ram but that's a theoretical max. Most motherboards maxed out at 768mb of ram ~1gb. The Pentium Pro line and pentium had a theoretical PAE of 64gb. Only a retard would believe OP's bullshit.

          well that picture mobo's manual claims it can
          it is an insane amount of memory for a P3, though, anything over a gig is, i'd say
          hell 4GB is a lot for a pentium 4, and only starting to become normal for a core 2

            as with a lot of things back in the late 90s, they made a lot of baseless claims. It was a strange time, my little zoomer. We thought it was bullshit then. Today it is noob bait. I don't even think SIMMs nor DDR modules went up to 1gb sticks. I think DDR had 1gb sticks WAY later but it was ECC ram or had compatibility issues because they were made after the fact and came out of china. There was essentially no way you could get 4 1gb sticks in 1999. I think the max size was 128MB or 256MB and they were like $300 a pop, so you would be spending $1200 for essentially 2gb of ram.

              that mobo/p3's used SD-RAM DIMMS, not SIMM nor DDR ram, and they did go up to 1GB, and yes they were expensive server ram, that is a dual socket board, i'm by no means saying normal people had this technology

                also also the xeons back then had support for 128gb of ram and were used well up to 2012. That is not ram for a p3 my little zoomer buddy.

          VIA chipsets can see 512MB sticks, if a motherboard has 3 RAM slots you can get 1.5GB SDRAM with a Pentium 3

                it wasn't even released during the p3's lifetime. It was released 9 years later from China because HP and Dell wanted cheap server ram. So you spending $650 for a $30 PC doesn't make you right, it makes you retarded. Nice case though.

                as a side note there are P3 boards with more than 4 slots, so you can make up 4GB with 512M sticks as well

                I had a dual celeron (because I couldn't afford p3s and celerons were still good enough) board with 1gb of ram for Windows 98SE/2k. It was a pretty comfy system for it's time. 98SE would struggle unless I took ram down to 768MB or 512MB. Windows 2000 was super stable with it though. I think I tried Windows XP on it and went back to Windows 2000 because of the issues XP had back when it was released.

                XP and 2k should be sweet with 4GB (though obviously you can't use it all due to PAE being disabled, unless you use advanced/datacentre server editions of 2k instead of the usual workstation edition, then you should be able to use the 4GB fully
                even though 2k workstation and xp claim 4GB support, that's 4GB total address space, which includes more than just the main ram, which lead to all kinds of confusing during the period where people started getting to 4GB while still on a 32bit edition of windows, then windows saying "4GB (3.26GB usable)" or what-have-you
                with PAE (36bit address space), you really can use all 4GB of ram, because the address space is widened such that it can fit alongside the rest of your peripherals

                I switched immediately to 64 bit windows xp/vista with my core 2 quad. I don’t really care for xp and skipped sp1 and went straight to xp sp2/x64

                well when 4GB actually started to become affordable for consumers, your machine was likely already 64bit, so you should have been moving to XP x64 or Vista 64bit as well
                but obviously that isn't an option for a Pentium III

              around same time you could get motherboards with a chipset that supported 1.5 - 2GB
