Preview - Build your Ultimate budget OS/2 machine !
« on: August 28, 2015, 08:31:00 am »
Here's a preview !  Any thoughts or suggestions ?

For under $90 bucks the ASRock 775I65G and Intel Core 2 Quad 2.4 GHz Q6600 CPU combo is inexpensive but versatile motherboard for legacy systems. With three PCI slots, the 775I65G has plenty of room because of the integrated video, lan and 6-channel audio which are all support out of the box by OS/2 !

Greggory, does that 90 include memory, hard disks and case?  If so it is a good price.

Oops, sorry no it includes MB, CPU & MEM, guess I could of wrote that better - Upgrade to the $49 ASRock 775I65G, $20 Intel Core 2 Quad 2.4 GHz Q6600 CPU & $20 G.Skill F1- 3200PHU2- 2GB DDR 400 memory combo. This is geared to upgrading older systems & having older parts around.

However, since everything works out of the box, I thought this would be a good write up - even the Intel video is accelerated by SNAP !
