Postby 19rsn007 » 2017-12-14 @ 19:43

After seeing two friends playing around with old pc's, they managed to pulled me to the dark side and I got my own retro build.

It's a P3 500Mhz with 512MB's of ram, a VooDoo3 3000 AGP card (16MB), Soundblaster AWE64 GOLD ISA soundcard.
Running windows 98

Gonna shoot some pics of it tomorrow :D
First game I actually played on it was Day Of The Tentacle :)

After that I installed my game/midi-port Microsoft Force Feedback wheel (that was a real struggle) and played some hard truck - king of the road :D

I like your specs. Great 1999 system. :cool: Looking forward to seeing pics. What are some other games you plan on playing on it?

I also got hold of a P3 700Mhz sock370 cpu (100mz bus) and found my slot to socket converter.....might put that in :-)

That's pretty good system to start off with, good in both dos and windows.
is a planned system or something you managed to pick up form somewhere?

well not really planned, but I just picked up the system and started building from there.
My friend had a spare AWE64 gold he just donated to me.

For now it's my retro gaming rig :)
