Here's my $366 ($288) OS/2 only build !
« on: February 10, 2015, 11:56:21 pm »
Here's my $366 OS/2 only build, $288 if you use your old case & PSU !

Keep in mind that it's a OS/2 only build no dual boot.

http://os2notes.net/os2machine.html

After looking around I found that the parts for this build that are new and still being produced, or can still be found new in the box. I plan on putting together a hardware webpage with the top 3 options for OS/2 in each hardware category.

I'm guessing any Intel Duo Core 2 will be good enough for OS/2, this motherboard uses (Core 2 Extreme / Core 2 Duo / Pentium D / Celeron).

So, all recommendations are welcome ! The current hardware pages are getting old and I think a new format would be good. I went through all of them before posting here.


Any thoughs ?
