Hello,

I was recently given a PC by a friend (he said if i could get the hard drive & firewire card out of it, i could keep the rest), & i basically only kept the mobo & RAM.

I've decided to make this a project build.

Brainstorming, i've decided I'm going to try & spend the least amount of money possible to make a working PC.

What i am worried about, is since this mobo is from 1998 I will have limitations in the additional hardware i put on to it.

Do you guys know any of those limitations on an Intel 810E chipset?

I plan on loading Arch Linux on it.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

The 810E was pretty much the low end chipset when it was introduced. It had no AGP slot etc. If you can get it running CHEAP, it might be something for internet use/word processing but for anything more strenuous, it will be a slug. Ideal for a Linux box to experiment with IMHO.

I had this bookmarked for some reason: (I think it had to do with another thread on this forum many months ago)
