Yeah, quite nice.

I see a Roland MPU-PC98II, a PC-FXGA, what appears to be two Voodoo IIs in SLI configuration (by the ports that are shown), and some unknown sound board.

Here's a picture of my machine:

i have the same case , it was used for a 286 motherboard and goes up to 20mhz or soemthing like that

the sad thing i found on that case is that if you open it there is a big PBC full of jumpers with no documentation anywhere on that board, and i was not able to fully get controll of all the bars that make up the numbers, so for example i was not able to set it as 66mhz , but i was able to set it as 20mhz for example.

im sure i was not able to set 66mhz or 99mhz

can you check if yours can? i belive the only options the switches gave me was to put a number like 20 or 8mhz
but there was always a bar that did not light up.

can you take a picture of how you have the switches setup i the back?
on mine i also tried to setup the turbo and it did not work... i always had one speed on the display, maybe you can help me out will send you a private message

Back somewhere in the period 2003-2005 I used to have quite a large collection of all sorts of classic computers. Here are just some of the systems I once had (enjoy! :blush: ):

Wow, sweet collection! Thanks for the pics, nice sight for tired eyes. You got rid of some of it later? I hope it's all in good hands.

I've setup a trio of old machines for retro gaming
Image

Top machine:
Windows XP.
Athlon64: 3400
1GB ram
160GB HDD
Nvidia 560ti
Creative Audigy Live
DVD Drive
Floppy Drive


Left Machine
Windows 95
Pentium1: 200mhz
32mb ram
Sound Blaster 16
80GB Hdd
ATi Mach 64 2mb
Orchid righteous Voodoo 1
PCI network
DVD Drive
Floppy Drive
Gotek Floppy drive


Right Machine
Windows 98
Pentium3:600Mhz
128MB ram
Sweex PCI sound card
80GB HDD
Diamond Speed Star AGP
Voodoo 2 x2 SLi
ISA network
Slot based DVD drive
Floppy Drive


The Win95 machine doubles as a DOS box as well, I had hoped to use the 98 box for that job but something about the machine doesn't like Vesa2.0 modes and crashes every time.
All three of them connect to a KVM switch (which then connects to a second KVM switch) to a CRT monitor, keyboard and mouse.

What chipset does your Athlon 64 machine use? It might support Win98 as well as XP.

I think it does support 98 (not sure if I could get drivers for the GPU), but I'm happy for the range of hardware and having the twin voodoo 2 cards is fun!

The case is a "CiT Jet Stream", I spent ages looking for a case that was big enough for the mobo that I had gotten second hand.
It doesn't look the part of a 90s machine and its not all that well built (very thin walls), but it was cheap and seems to work nicely :)
It seems to be getting harder to find cases that are large enough for 7 or so expansion cards and still have 5.25" and 3.5" slots on the front.

I have more retro computers, I'll post them up once I've taken some better pics

Its the Amstrad PPC640, its XT clone.
NEC V30 (8088, 8086 clone) at 8mhz
It doesn't have a harddrive so it has 2 720kb floppy drives,
640kb of ram
CGA graphics
green monochrome LCD screen, but has video out that gives colour.

2004 Pentium 4 retro setup / bedroom PC:

Specs:

CPU: Pentium 4 HT 3.0 Prescott
Mobo: GA-8SGXLFS
RAM: 2gb DDR1
GPU: Radeon 9800 PRO 128mb
HDD: 2x 40gb Seagate
OS: Windows XP Pro SP3
Monitors: 2x 17" CRT, Samsung Samtron 76E and Philips 107E

I still need to get a longer S-Video and 3,5mm-RCA cables so I could connect it to that 28" Philips CRT TV. And a better CPU cooler... One that I'm currently using is from a Celeron 1.8GHz which was the original build in that case.

You might want to search for a DVI-I to RGB cable. I've personally seen one and the quality is pretty crisp compared to composite or S-Video.
