memtest86 completed 3 passes with no errors, so:

Asus A7M266-D w/ Dual Athlon 2100 MP and 4 x 512MB PC2100 ECC Dimms
AMD 762 Chipset
RAM clocking is "normal"

PCI 3com 3c905-TX ethernet
PCI Tekram DC-390U3W SCSI Controller
PCI ATI 3d Rage II Video

1 IDE Hard disk
1 external SCSI disk

PSU is a Turbo-Cool 475 ATX-PFC (appears to be 460W)
