Grrr, alright so I found this $90 custom built PC on eBay, 600MHz AMD Athlon K-6 processor, 128MB RAN, NIC, CD-ROM drive and a now 400GB HD (thank you dynamic drive overlay). Now then, to get to the problem. The issue is that this is a custom made PC, the seller doesn't know specifics about the motherboard or BIOS and from the looks of it it's some AMD Gateway motherboard although I can't find on the gateway site any hint of them ever having a amd gateway computer, there's no clues in the BIOS as to what the serial number of the motherboard may be so that means I don't have any hope of IDing it at the gateway site, all system info tools and BIOS ID tools are unable to ID the motherboard as well and this means I'm stuck with some 1980s BIOS and no way to figure out what kind of RAM this thing takes...grrr! Anyone here able to help? Any ideas? Anyone ever heard of gateway selling a amd computer? Please help, all replies and suggestions are greatly appreciated as I'm at a loss right now. :( Thanks in advance!

If you have a system built in the 1980s that has a 600MHz chip, you have a very rare item that you can get a lot of money for ;).
