Re: Hurrah! - Found an AT case!

Yep. Needs a little bit more paint on the edges where it hasn't covered quite as well - the power button was taken out because I plan to fit the ATX psu instead - what I'll do there is remove the latch mechanism from inside the AT power switch and turn it into a momentary type needed by ATX. On the …

Hurrah! - Found an AT case!

After a long search I finally found someone selling an AT case just over a week ago. Downside was that it looked in fairly crappy condition - the case was yellowed and the inside was filthy. PSU was questionable too. Upside was that it was quite obviously standard AT layout, had front mounted hdd …

Re: My First Dualatin

In the end it will be probably my AGP Pro …

Re: scsi cards

I suspect that there's probably not much between 1, 2 and 3 - a 486 just doesn't have the memory bandwidth needed to shift those kinds of numbers around. SATA-150 is likely to be no slower in terms of real-life data transfer rates, but you'll not be able to do anything else at the same time if you …

Re: scsi cards

I'm still wondering when SCSI drives started to become slower btw. I'm tempted to try SCSI on an old rig, but I don't want a loud machine standing next to me. They didn't. ATA/SATA drives became faster and have crept in the workstation/server market at the low end, but comparing apples to apples …
