Re: Any love for AM2?

The only AM2/AM3 system I've ever built was for my first arcade cabinet PC, and honestly I chose AMD because the whole build was cheaper than an Intel build, and for the purpose of running MAME and other emulators I didn't need a high performance system. At the time, the C2D platform just dominated …

Re: FIC SS7 98SE build

A ball mouse eh? You really are taking the period correct thing seriously, lol. That's one thing I just can't compromise on, no more ball mice.

Critique my current builds

First off, about me. I am not new to retro computing, as I am fortunate enough to be the perfect age to have lived through the best time period in PC history. I was 19 when I bought my very first PC in 1996/1997. It was a CTX with 200 MHz K6, 8 MB RAM and 2 GB HDD, and what I wouldn't give to have …

Differences between Voodoo2 boards

Hi all, so I currently have 2 Diamond Monster 3D II 12 MB boards and 3 STB Black Magic 12 MB boards, and wondering if there are any major differences between the different brands? I've heard there is slight image quality differences but I can't personally vouch for that. Other than my desire to …
