    I recently heard about this little mod, and it seems pretty cool to share. My nieces actually have a salvaged PC with a 775 mobo to play Sims on, so at some point I might end up trying this myself if they ever need a boost.


    The process reminds me a bit of the Super Nintendo mod, where you snap off two plastic tabs and bam--now you can play Japanese games no prob :P

    Interesting. I did the token search to see how much a straight LGA771 board would run, you can get refurb ones for not a lot. However you are probably then lumped with buying FBDIMM RAM and combined that starts to be less cheap.

    On the other hand many do have proper RAID or SAS support.
