Hi! I recently get this used computer for US $25.00 at a yard sale. The reason why I got this machine was the Motherboard. I friend of mine owns one and I think is a very good choice and for that price, I don't think you can get anything better. The computer motherboard is an Azus A7V8X-X. I got it with 1.2 Ghz Athlon XP Processor 512 Mb RAM PC2700/ 40 Gb HD/ Sony 52x32x52 CD-R & 64 Mb Nvidia MX 400 Video card. For me this going to be my lab testing machine. I've been using it for several months now and I think for being an old computer runs very fast. I put some extra memory ( a 256 Mb DDR 400 Dim and a 128 Mb DDR 333 Dim) and another 40 Gb HD. I know I shouldn't mix different types on memory on it but works fine. I'm thinking on putting a 2.8 Ghz processor and 3 Gbs of RAM cause I want to used it for lab testing programs like Vmware and Virtual PC. My questions is, for those who know this motherboard. It's it worth it to upgrade to a faster processor and add more memory? And keep in mind that I got this computer for just $25.00 US dollars.
