Re: CompuAdd 316s

Any chance you have the dip switch settings for the Compuadd 316s? Trying to upgrade to 4mb.. Thanks! To my knowledge there were no dip switch configurations, you'll need a setup floppy for a 386 Phoenix or AMI or whatever type of BIOS this has, it's been years since I've messed with this so I …

Optiplex 390 Help

This isn't exactly retro. But I recently picked up a couple of motherboards puled from Dell Optiplex 390 computers because they were only $15 a piece and I have some family members running nearly 8-9 year old core2 and Athlon II x2 systems that could use an upgrade so I found a cheap Xeon E3 1225 …

Re: Best low-profile PCI graphics card?

Most of the low profile cards use a dms-59 connector but a dms-59 to dual vga breakout is only …

Re: Best low-profile PCI graphics card?

The 8400gs is faster than the HD3450 from what I can see online, faster PCI cards like the 9500gt and faster are pointless and are massively bottle necked by the PCI bus. I did a review of the 9500gt PCI about a month ago, https://www.vogons.org/viewtopic.php?f=46&t=54623 , and I found that the card …
