I found a local seller offering an Intel D865GLC motherboard with 512MB and an unspecified Socket 478 CPU for very cheap, pretty much shipping cost only. Now, I am not familiar at all with S478, back in the day I totally skipped that era of Intel technology (I used AMD since my P3 died until C2D came out), so the possibility of building a 478 retro build has piqued my interest.
So, does anyone know if it is a reasonably good board? I'm not expecting (and I'm not interested in) any OC features from Intel, but I'm more concerned about stability/reliability. Also, with what processor and video card would you pair that board for a powerful period correct build of that era? (around mid-2003 if I'm not mistaken).
