Going off the list of keeping the following running:

386DX-33, 8 MB RAM, TSENG ET4000 ISA
486DX2-66, 32 MB RAM, TSENG ET4000 VLB
Pentium 166, 64 MB RAM, Voodoo1 / S3 Virge DX
Pentium 3 - 1 GHZ - 768 MB RAM - GeForce2 Ultra (with V2 SLI)
Core 2 Quad 6700 - 2.66 GHZ - 6 GB RAM - GeForce 9800 GT (1 GB) SLI


If I keep the P3 - 1 GHZ and install V2 SLI, what are thoughts on keeping the GF2 Ultra in there or using a better card in it with the V2 SLI to bridge the gap between it and the GF 9800 / Core 2 Quad machine?

I'm currently looking to consolidate a lot of my retro machines and parts and have whittled it down to the following

P200MMX, Gigabyte TX motherboard, 64mb ram, PCI Voodoo Banshee, and a number of sound cards
AMD K6-III+ 450mhz, Ali SS7 motherboard, 128mb ram, AGP Voodoo 3, CT2230 SB16 and a Music Quest MPU 401
AMD Athlon XP2400, Abit KT7A Raid, 512mb ram Radeon 9700 Pro, SB Awe64 Gold, Diamond MX300 Vortex 2
AMD Athlon 64 3400, Asus 754 VIA motherboard, 512mb, Nvidia GS7800, SB Audidgy 2

I feel this covers a wide range of games, the K6-III being the jewel in the crown.

I will keep a Dual Slot board, Slot 1 board, and a Socket 370 board in storage with some nice Video cards and i'm covered :cool:

I am going to let the PIII do the hard work of the Late P1 - PIII era, which is why I may upgrade the card in to go along with the Voodoo2 SLI setup to cover a wide range...
