Hey guys! I just thought I would show you my current setup. An IBM PC730., next to my trusty t430 😀

- 166mhz Pentium non mmx
- 64mb RAM
- 2mb s3 Trio
- 3dfx Voodoo 1
- Creative sound blaster awe 32
- win95

I had the same pc series as a child, but was the much more low end 486 model. So this spec I could have only dreamed of in 1996

It was basically a cps2 dev machine, so it’s versions of stuff like Street Fighter 2, Final Fight, Strider etc are pretty much arcade perfect. It wasn’t until PS1 and Saturn era that it was bested for stuff like this. Some insanely good shmups too. Check out it’s capabilities - not bad for a machine from 1987

Hi everyone,

I'm new here, and hope this is a good thread to introduce myself. I'm from Poland, and I first used a computer around 1985 (a ZX81), first owned a computer in 1988 (C64), and first owned a PC in 1994... I love restoring and working with computers from the 90s. Any kind — Amigas, Apples, PCs.

Well, nice to meet you all, I hope to learn from, and contribute to, this fascinating forum (I've been an anonymous lurker for a while).

Here's my happy place which I often share with my son 😀 Recently I started to explore DOS-era sound cards and I'm currently sitting in that rabbit hole — hence the prominent loudspeakers.
