So I was cleaning out our storeroom at work and I found some old PC’s. Pentium 4 (2.8 Prescott and 2.4 Northwood), a Celeron (Northwood), and a AMD Sempron (2200+). I got them to boot up in their cases and found they still work fine. Microsoft XP FTW!!!!
Also found some other PC’s that didnt work but I robbed 2 video cards and some hard drive from them, etc.
Now Id like to make something to play around with, show my nephews/nieces what PC’s used be like. But since they are all on old OEM (Dell and HP) powersupply 250/300W, I was thinking of maybe putting something newer in.
Doing some reading I have found that newer PSU’s run thier power more in the 12V side than then 3.3/5V side. Any suggestions on newer PSU that have higher 3.3/5V? 25/30A seem to be a good target, but Im having trouble finding anything like that on new.
And lastly... is used even a option I should consider?
