I'm going to share the specs and some pictures of this system first. At some point in the future, I'll share more details of the system and the process of building it, as well as other pictures.
Here are the specs:
Pentium 4 "Northwood" 2.53GHz
Voodoo 3 3000
Sound Blaster Live!
Hitachi 250GB HDD
Pioneer slot-loading DVD drive
Sony floppy drive
Here are some pictures of the system:
Here are some pictures of the m3D and its box:
It's probably not necessary to blur the serial number, but I did it anyway.
I'll say a few things about this system. First, my main goal with this system was to build a PC that can play the majority of Windows games from the late 90s and earlier. That era was my goal, because my modern system can play almost any game newer than that. I also wanted to have native Glide support, because I've always been a fan of Voodoo graphics, and because I already had this Voodoo 3 3000 (I bought it new, years ago). Secondary goals for the system that I eventually achieved: ability to play DOS games, and PowerVR support. Here's a list of some of the kinds of games it can play: most late 90s and earlier Windows and DOS games with 3D acceleration, with support for these APIs: Glide, PowerSGL, OpenGL, and DirectX. Also, most Windows and DOS games (with sound) in general from the late 90s and earlier. The system is also powerful enough to play some games from the early 2000s.
Like I said, I'll share more in the future, though I can't say exactly when that will be.
