Re: Dual socket 7 build

I actually tested it with a tester card. it has 3.3v am I missing something? The notches determine which signalling voltage is used. A PCI slot can be keyed for 5V signalling but still have 3.3Vcc present on the corresponting pins. A PCI card keyed for 5V signalling can require 3.3Vcc to be present …

Re: Good value Win98 Graphic Card

I only mentioned AGP 8x because my board only accepts cards with 1.5v. I know the 5500 is basically a (very slightly) faster 5200, but comes in 128bit unlike 5200 which can be 64 or 128bit, most people don't even know what that is, and is easier to find for sale when compared to faster cards. I …

The killer nic is a crappy copy of the Intel chip with buggy drivers. I wouldn't use one if someone handed me $100 to do it. I'm fairly certain you're more knowledgeable than me regarding hardware and I agree that the product isn't worth the hassle but I do not understand how the Killer NIC (K1 or …

Re: Dual socket 7 build

if you want a "killer" nic. Look for the Intel PRO series. Both the 10/100 and gigabit series cards have a lot of features that offload work onto the card, and not the CPU. Drivers are mature and even still updated from time to time. I looked at the pro 10/100 drivers recently and the DOS drivers …
