Just upgraded my computer and realized I have a fair amount of the parts to build another machine which would probably just be used for FAH.
I'm looking for suggestions on what would be the cheapest setup for best folding results.
What I have:
AMD A64 3200+ (939 socket Winchester)
1 GB (2x512mb) DDR400
Somewhere in the frankenstein parts box, I'm sure I have:
Network card, Keyboard and mouse, CD-ROM, 3.5 floppy, HD (~40GB)
Win98SE or Win2k (have both that aren't being used since I went to XP)
What should I get to set this up to inexpensively fold? (Can't be too noisy as I won't have CAT-5 run to the garage for at least 6 months. More likely a year. So it will be in the home office.)
I didn't see a motherboard listed there... do you have one for that AMD? All VIA chipsets seem to have retained support at least to Win98SE, so, if necessary, you can pick up a microATX board with integrated graphics (K8M890 chipset, for example) and start folding with either of your old OSes.
