Hello everyone,

First of all i'd like to thank YOU for this amazing community that helped me solve many problems over the years, probably without information i found on vogons i wouldn't be able to enjoy my retro PC builds as much as i can now.

I'd like to present some information on my main retro system that i use on daily basis 😀
Don't have any pics since its all packed in not so retro pc case i had lying around at the time i started putting this stuff together. Current system specs are:
- Asus P2B motherboard (440BX)
- Pentium III 850mhz processor (coppermine with passive cooling taken from PIII 700)
- 384MB SDRAM 100mhz
- 3dfx Voodoo 5 5500 AGP
- Creative Soundblaster Live 5.1 (primary audio device)
- Creative Soundblaster AWE64 Gold (secondary audio device)
- 3Com PCI ethernet adapter
- primary drive - Seagate 40GB
- secondary drive - WD 120GB
- Some generic Liteon CD-RW drive
- Some generic Floppy drive
- Windows 98SE

With this system i can enjoy both DOS games like Doom 2, Heretic, Hexen or Duke Nukem 3D, but also Windows games up to year 2000 (for newer games i plan putting up Athlon XP / Windows XP system). Im supper happy with this choice of hardware as it gives me the most of what i would ever want from my retro PC. Please comment and share your thoughts. 😀
