A PCI/ISA riser for the GX100/110 actually does exist, but is apparently very rare.. My search for one continues..

I have a ton of those risers at work since we used the GX100 and GX110 extensively. Next time we do a scrap/recycle day cleanup, I will grab some.


I would be incredibly grateful if you would be so kind as to ship one of them my way.. You have no idea, really.

Not sure when it will be (possibly months) , but if you need one now, memory4less has the same risers for around $45. (Dell 4224D)

No, I'm not in a rush; I can wait for a couple of months, I've been waiting for years anyway. Just.. don't forget about me :)

I finally have a GX1 for my Optiplex pile! (I got locked out of my old account) This was about $10 at a thrift shop on the way home from classes and I couldn't leave it there so I will add it to my hoard. It has a slot 1 Pentium 3 and the coveted ISA riser card but I've only tested it enough to make sure the power supply works. Anyone know why these little low profile guys have 3 IDE plugs on the board? Not really anywhere to add more drives.

Probably because they used the same boards for the other optiplex models, like the mid tower and larger clamshell model.

Very jealous of you. Definitely want to get one of the PIII models like that.

Ahh good point, seems more obvious in retrospect!

Thanks! I think Millennium Edition needs a little more love, I enjoy using it anyhow. Most of the thrift shops around me seem to just send the stuff right to recycle so this is the first time I've found something good other than the occasional overpriced windows 95 laptop.
