Just picked up what appears to be a nice rig on eBay. Spec as below:
- Case: Chieftec Dragon full ATX
- Mobo: Aopen AX6BC 82440BX
- PSU: Brand new 600W Novatech
- CPU: P3 450Mhz (Slot 1)
- RAM: 192MB PC100
- HDD: 10GB running Windows 98 (l'll be looking to replace with something larger and 98SE)
- Graphics: Geforce 2 Ti
- Sound: SB Live SB0100
I've also picked up a couple of ESS Audiodrive cards (ISA) - ES1868F & ES1869 and will nabbing a Dreamblaster S2 or X3 so all bases are covered in terms of good DOS compatibility for sound.
What do you guys think?
I'll be looking to play Thief and Thief 2 (my fave games ever) so hoping the above is powerful enough?
I was also thinking about the possibility of dropping a Geforce 4 Ti 4200 into it at some point, but wondered if it would either a) not work at all, or b) be severely hampered (4200 is AGP 8x). Let's say that a 4200 'could' be used.. Would I then need to upgrade the CPU & RAM?
Thanks ever so much guys!
