Hello there fellow retro-gurus
Well, I'm not really a guru since I need help but anyway...... 😀
My friend gave me his MMX-233 in this config:
* Mainboard: Chaintech 5VLM M101 (if anyone has a manual for this since I only found 3 dead links so far) with 16MB RAM *EDIT* Just found some info on the board
* GPU: Some SiS card (didn't look at it further ATM)
* Soundcard: Avance Logic AV 310
* HD of course running W95
Now so far I only added a Voodoo2 but I want to upgrade the RAM to 32MB and maybe add another sound card too.
I noticed 2 different types of RAM slots. The ones that are filled are 72 pins double sided RAM. Am I correct? But what is the other one?
What is my best upgrade path?
Change the 2x8 into 2x16 72-pin since I'm guessing that mixing different types is not possible of recommended?
The mainboard has PCI and ISA slots and the sound cards that I have here are AWE32 PNP CT3980, AWE64 CT4380 , AWE64 Gold! CT4390 + CT1950, SB 16 Wave Effects CT4170, Audician 32 plus and a Sound Galaxy Orion16.
Or should I stick with the AV 310?
I've read a lot of MMX build threads but there are a lot of trees in the forest!
Thanks for looking!
My retro collection: too much...
