My super socket 7 board supports ecc, bur probably non-registered and only 256mb ram modules. I bought 2x512 PC100 SDRAM ECC Registered modules because they were cheap...now I dont have motherboard for that. I want to build overkill retro machines, so 1gb memory should be maximum, or 4 slots and 2gb memory limit is ok. Dual socket is not required, although nice to have. No Pentium 3, that is too new and not good for this memory PC100.
If you have another crazy overkill build ideas, please let me know. Currently I have 2x128mb 72pin EDO SIMM as well.
Yes, it is a must have for me. I want to experiment with software and perhaps bring it more up to date. Also LINUX GUI is ridiculously hungry on memory and can have newest software compiled. That is just one of the use cases if you wonder why software developer wants to build overkill retro machines.
