I bought some random computer crap from a garage sale today, for about 35 bucks. (It was a ton of stuff, so I just bought it all and looked through it later).
Pictures:

I found the motherboard in the last pic, and I want to use it, but I can't figure out what kind of CPU fits it! Can someone please look at those pics and try to tell me what CPUs it fits?

More pics (of CPU socket)

The motherboard has
2 SATA ports
1 internal firewire port
1 external firewire port
1 FDD connector
2 IDE connectors
1 PCI-E slot
2 PCI slots
3 other unrecognizable expansion slots
8 memory slots
24 pin power connector
Onboard sound and networking
etc etc etc.

I think it's pretty new (It has PCI-E), but I'm not really sure.

I think this is you motherboard. If you click on the first image in the image viewer on this page you will get good look at it.

Hope this helps. :thumbsup:

35$ Wow! Wish I had that luck.


Any ways that looks to me like a server Motherboard if my brain is working correctly today. I don't think their are any desktop motherboards that have 2 cpu sockets. The link that dc3 gave you sure looks like it. Good luck building a server. Thier pretty expensive self build or not.
(Or a desktop operating system for that matter.)

If I am helping you and I do not respond within 24 hours, please send me a PM. :)

Yeah, all of that minus the one chassis on the right was 35 at the garage sale. It was pretty incredible, my friend said that it was just a box or 2 of motherboards, but when I showed up all of that stuff was there,, and they sold it to me cheap because they needed to get rid of it. To get a visual picture, think of a SUV. Now think of the back and middle seats completely filled with computer stuff. That's how much stuff there was.
