Life is strange. The other day I decided I need a GF4-MX440 for a future project. After going through my box of graphics cards I realized I didn't have one and bought a model from Gainward. Now, two weeks later, a friend showed up with a discarded PC he found. And that contained a nearly identical model from Albatron 😀
That PC also contained an interesting board: Albatron PX865PE Pro.
I was never much interested in Pentium 4 stuff so I don't know much about chipsets from that era. Maybe some experts here can tell me if that's a capable board. But from what I've found on the web so far it looks like that might be a good choice for a Pentium 4 system. The PC also came with a P4 3GHz.
Can't have too many MX440s.
Honestly these are the cards I recommend whenever a normal, non collector wants a 9x machine. Very cheap, hyper reliable, excellent performance for 90s titles.
The motherboard seems to be a late P4/AGP board: https://www.anandtech.com/show/1114/6
It has most of the things one would look for in such a board such as SATA and USB2.
