Hardware chart

Postby Tetrium » 2011-5-15 @ 08:35

Yesterday I found this while browsing the net like a headless zombie.
It's a large pic with detailed shots of a lot of relevant hardware thingies like CPU sockets, RAM modules and a few others.

If this link goes down, just google "hardware chart"

I posted this here mainly because I think it's quite good. Also put it in the "Good reading for retro" thread linked at the bottom of this post.

And I actually learned something from this chart, I never knew there were different kinda of RDRAM modules made! Good thing I didn't already buy a couple lots lol.

Anyway, enjoy ;)
And I'd love some feedback lol. Btw, I did not make this chart hehe :P

That's a nice chart there.


It would look awesome blown up and printed in some obnoxiously huge size, then hung on a wall...

You've just given me an idea. How about "geek wallpaper". I'd buy it. :happyhappy:

Nah, a true geek can ID any given socket by just looking at the back of a motherboard! :D

It's a bit outdated, but still awesome nonetheless. Nice to have a handy chart like this within plain sight.

Exactly. But why not just mount old cards at the top of the wall as a border? Make sure they're dead though or you're improperly storing them :P.

Geek wallpaper would go nicely too. And someone on here had geek carpet!
