I love it!
I am building up my own retro rig fleet 😀. My DOS machine is configured basically the same as your middle box.
Love the retro cases. I decided to go all modern ATX cases for uniformity myself, but there is nothing like a beige beauty with a turbo button 🤣

One thing I could not work out in that box is getting a DVD decoder card working.
I have a Monster DVD-1000 card, I connected it to the LPB connector on the S3 Virge card, installed the drivers and player software, and it only plays sound. I get a solid purple screen instead of video. Tried different ribbon cables, refresh rates, color depths, and no dice. Using the last S3 driver released from December 1997 which has DirectDraw.
Mine is an SIS board with a pentium 233mmx, a Cirrus Logic 5446 and a Diamond Voodoo 1 4mb. I haven't spent much time with CD rom games yet. I am currently distracted with my IBM XT clone PC 😀.
