Re: What is PCI-X?

Guessing your in the same boat as I was few years ago. I had a server of some type that I was looking to upgrade just for the sake of upgrading. As others have said Network and RAID cards are the cheap options, neither of which interested me. Graphics was the most interesting option but PCI-X cards …

Re: How much of your retro hardware do you actually use?

The worst part is, at least for me, when you come to the point to say, okay, it's more than enough, yet you can't convince yourself to sell what you don't need because it was so difficult to obtain them. Or similarly that the prices will continue to rise and you don't want to re-buy stuff at …

Re: My new Windows 98 build

I like the rubber strip around the hole cut for the front fan. Gives it a much less case hack feel and more professional, not something I'm very good at. Love the cable management tape, that's more my style, zip ties and tape can fix everything ;) Always impressed with your builds the hardware is …

Alot of us started by wanting to build a PC to play a certain games then discovered building the PC itself was more fun and find excuses to build more. Right now I have 12 game PC's ready to go. Starting with a 486 running Dos6 though to a Win7 Socket 1366. All PC's have something unique to them, …

Re: mobo upgrade

Fair enough, I never doubted you was just interested in the titles and now you mention it I think I've read before Bug's life is a picky game. Both those games recommend a computer around the 200/300Mhz mark so a late P2 early P3 is probably the right area in either Slot 1 or S370 format. on the AMD …

Re: mobo upgrade

I would have thought you were well covered with a 233MMX covering early Win9x games and the P4 covering the later, which games are causing trouble? If it was me I'd bite the bullet and go down the ATX route as this opens up easier to obtain and better designed newer cases and PSU's Plus if you have …

Re: World Wide Web support in Win 98SE & ME in 2023

Not really sure which programs will still work, even 20 years ago I can only remember using email and lesser extent ICQ and MSN messenger oh and I spose Napster. Don't know/care if these can still work. You can use old browsers (something that is kind of interesting for me) using a proxy service. …

Re: My 1990-2000 gaming rig.

It is hard to beat a Slot 1 rig. Late dos/ and most of Win9x era covered. The whole cartage style CPU is kind of special. BX chipset is about as stable as you'll ever get and the P2B is a very nice example of a BX board. The V3 is always nice. Having 2 Ensonic cards is kind of cool. I agree the …
