That was an interesting visit to my CPU graveyard.
Found out I've Socket 5 motherboards (pentium and later), and even an 8086 board, but nothing between the two.

I just found out I also need a Socket 7 motherboard if you have it. Thanks

I have three of them for you, @elite. Let me know if you are interested, otherwise they are off to e-Waste.

I think I have some AM1/2/3 boards kicking around, they may have some older working DDR in them.

I trashed some old sempron x240 stuff recently, and an athon 64.

Let me know if there is anything specific you want.
If my post has helped you out, gimme a thumbs up! Buy/Sell/Trade with Confidence!

You can get more computing power from a cell phone
Could just be a hobby... it's quite nostalgic and fun (dare I say) to tinker with older PC hardware... I'm sure most of us have done it at one point or another...
and... it could keep the wallet safe (sometimes... depending on the age of the hardware).
