delaford Posted June 15, 2009 Share Posted June 15, 2009 (edited) I own a Pentium 4 Cedar Mill 641 processor:http://www.newegg.com/product/product.aspx...N82E16819116003 (click the "Specifications" tab)http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Intel....22_.2865_nm.29http://processorfinder.intel.com/details.aspx?sSpec=SL94XI also own one stick of "WinTec Ampo 512 MB SDRAM DDR 400 (PC 3200)":http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx...N82E16820161615 (click the "Specifications" tab)I think I've found what I've been looking for - a motherboard that will support these 2 parts AND Windows 98SE: ASRock's 775I65PE.There's a refurbished one here that lists specs:http://3btech.net/as77so77553p1.htmlSo my questions are, looking at the specs sheets I listed above,(1) Does this motherboard, the ASRock 775I65PE, support (a) my processor (Cedar Mill 641)? (b) my RAM?(2) If my processor isn't supported, what motherboard does support both (a) my processor and (b) Windows 98SE?(3) If my RAM isn't supported, what RAM would work?Mainly I'm interested in supporting the processor (if only either CPU or RAM), since it's the most expensive of all these parts.I've also found these 2 video cards, hoping to upgrade from my old GeForce Ti-4200:http://www.provantage.com/evga-256-a8-n401-lr~7EVGA0CH.htm (GeForce 6200 256MB AGP 8x)http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/Se...7&CatId=935 (GeForce 6800 Ultra 256MB AGP 8x)(4) Will either card work with 98SE? From what I've read on these forums, yes. But some of the threads were old, and I'd like to be reasonably sure. Does either involve the "Turbo" feature some people were warning against with 98SE? Is one safer than the other?I'm trying to replace a 7-year-old computer. I'm purposely using Windows 98SE, thus the need to support it.I just want to get my computer running again. It's been 2 months of late nights, fixes, a new hard drive, and troubleshooting, and I'm done with the old computer. It has worked great, under less than optimal conditions, for years. But it's time to get something new. It crashed two months ago, then crashed three weeks later, now crashed again with an INT 24 error. I need a change.I know all advice here is non-liable. I don't want anybody's personal promise to resolve if something doesn't work; I just want to know whether these parts _should_ work together.
