Got this motherboard with Pentium Pro @ 150mhz for cheap:
Has 3x ISA, not sure what all those slots are on the left, different RAM slots?
Not sure what to expect for performance on this vs Pentium MMX.
Will think about dual booting Win3.1 / Win98se. Any recommendations for games that will run good on this rig?
Thats a regular Pentium or Pentium MMX, not a Pentium Pro, Pentium Pros only work in Socket 8 and chipsets like the 450GX and 450KX and 440FX. that mobo has the 430VX chipset so thats definitely a socket 7, and those Dallas chips can be a PITA at times, especially when they're soldered in.
Ah no worries, for $20 all-in still not bad. Since it's Socket 7, do you guys think a DX4 100mhz would be faster than the CPU that's in there? I have a spare Am486DX4-100 kicking around
also, Socket 5 and 7 won't support Socket 1/2/3 CPUs like the 486 SX/DX/DX2/DX4, Pentium Overdrive, Am486/5x86, etc. CPUs, they can only support Pentium CPUs from 75 to 200 MHz, Pentium MMX CPUs from 166 to 233 MHz, AMD K5, K6, K6-2, Cyrix 6x86, MII, IDT Winchip C6, etc. CPUs.
