Re: 1997 Pentium MMX Rebuild

Recent update: Picked up NOS Seagate Medalist 4,3 Gb HDD https://i.imgur.com/fARgNtym.jpg https://i.imgur.com/YeyHVWCm.jpg I know that most of people prefer CF-IDE adapters, but I was missing all this old school hdd noises=) There were issues with Voodoo 2 installed it last PCI slot (it just stopped …

Re: 1997 Pentium MMX Rebuild

Is it the Microsoft Natural Keyboard? I bought one of those the day before going to my (computer) written final tests for high school. I thought "What the h** - crash and burn" and wrote the essay on my brand-spanking-new MS Natural keyboard, without having tried one before .. It was GREAT! No, …

Re: 1997 Pentium MMX Rebuild

Very nice computer. Also like CRT monitor. I have Samsung 797 MB, working 10 years already. Love that monitor. So I can speak about your monitor, that it's nice. (looks the same). I'm so sad, they don't produce CRT monitors like this anymore. The only thing I dont like is that weird keyboard. I …

Re: 1997 Pentium MMX Rebuild

Got some upgrades. First, the big one. Got Diamond Monster 3D II 8 Mb instead of my Diamond Monster 3D 4 Mb. https://i.imgur.com/4ZsenQel.jpg https://i.imgur.com/8oZkolNl.jpg This card is longer and does not fit any slot, except last one. But it barely touches cpu cooler with one chip. Not big deal, …

Also the cpu cooler is nice but the c2d were not heat monsters and you could have easily got away with a stock Intel hsf to make working the case …

2007 WinXP full NOS build

I love NOS hardware. The unboxing, the smell, it is so exciting! Also I wanted to build some late WinXP machine. So I decided to build a fully NOS system! Fortunately, there is no big problem to find some 2007 new parts. CPU I had 2 options. To go with Pentium 4 541 or Core 2 Duo E6750. New and …

Re: 1997 Pentium MMX Rebuild

Well, maxed out P1 is more like 75 FSB x 3.5 = 262 Mhz, or 83x3.5 = 292 Mhz. Btw, I would use maximum 15'' monitor to old 486/Pentium 1 retro build. The reason is, old games, that run only 320x200 or 640x480, doesnt look good on 17''. Also, most of users didnt have 17'' in 1995-1998 era, they've …

Re: 1997 Pentium MMX Rebuild

a very nice maxxed P1! i have a P1 mmx 166mhz with 64mb of glorious edo ram! I'd recommend doubling the ram if you can, but to be honest your PC as it is can run window 3.1, 95 or 98 and masses of dos and early windows games just fine as it is great components, mine has only the basics (2mb …
