Re: Experiences Upgrading Socket 7 Cache from 0KB -> 512KB? Recommended Video Card? Best 1993-98 Games for Pentium 200M

I wasn't aware those 2*8 chipped PC-66 32MB SDRAMs had become so hard to come by. These weren't exactly rare back in the day. The 16MB modules (the ones which are basically half the 32MB PC-66 ones) were more uncommon. It's quite the limitation from the 430VX chipset. Back then I always saw it more …

Cache has diminishing returns moving from FPM RAM, to EDO, to SDRAM - with SDRAM, the burst speed is the same, but the cache delivers the start a few cycles quicker But it does always have some return, even with SDRAM. Why not go for 64MB SDRAM if you can - the max cacheable range of the VX chipset …

I updated the post with additional ISA options; should I change them up, or I was thinking to use the ProAudio Spectrum for MIDI (and SCSI) duties instead because of your points? That MediaVision sound card isn't PAS16 compatible but that one can be used for MPU-401 duties. If you can deal with the …

Having at least 256KB of motherboard cache vastly improves the performance (around 25% aprox.) on the Socket 7 platform. For video hardware I would go for the Diamond Stealth 3D 2000 Pro 4MB + Voodoo Graphics combo as it is the most compatible. PowerVR PCX could also be added as a third accelerator …

Re: I miss the 70’s, 80’s, and 90’s

The "Golden Age" was 1990 - 2006; beginning with Windows 3.x and the premier series of Upper Deck 1990-91 Hockey Cards and sunset-ed with the end of support for Windows NT 4.0 and the release of Windows Vista and NVidia Geforce 8800 Series cards. There's a special place in my heart for '95-'00, …

Re: [How to Fix] Windows 98SE setup gets stuck

in Windows
Search for the Internet for 'REMOVED' and you can find a Windows boot disk (or bootable ISO). You can use any version of 95/98/ME floppy disks for any version of Win9X without hassle if you start the computer with CD support and then navigate to the D:\WIN95, WIN98, or WIN9X directory and run setup …
