Good morning to all! I'm kinda new to these message boards, so here goes...
(woo! first post!)
Motherboard - Unknown, probably VIA chipset. 2 x ISA slots, 4 x PCI slots, 1 x AGP slot (AGP rate = 2x? Quite probably). Has PS/2 connections for mouse & keyboard, 2 USB sockets,
Processor - AMD K6-II, 300 MHz. Overclockable safely to 335 by increasing the multiplier, has heatsink-fan.
Memory - 224MB RAM. 2 x 16MB simm modules, 1 x 64MB PC100 SDRAM, 1 x 128MB PC100 SDRAM.
Video Card 1 - S3 Virge (325)
Video Card 2 - Righteous Orchid 3D (Voodoo Graphics)
Sound Card - Creative Sound Blaster AWE64 (though the drivers are listed as 16-32)
Operating System - Windows 95 OSR2
Hard Drive - 6GB, generic or unknown brand
Other Devices - PCI 10/100 network card and 56k modem
I've recently taken a new interest in it, and just re-installed Windows, made sure I got the newest drivers for the S3 and Orchid. I hope to use it mainly for running old games, possibly LANing with friends who're also digging out their old rigs. I've so far successfully installed and played Unreal on Glide (it's better than software, D3D fails, and OpenGL is abominably slow).
What other games will I be able to play, and are there any hardware upgrades I might need? (refrain from just listing every part as needing replacement 😜 )
