Getting it ready for auction, figured I might as well show these pics/stats on here for historical sake. 😀 I'm getting rid of it cause: A) It was just too darn loud (PSU mainly) and B) I needed more ISA slots. Even though the Dell had on-board SB16 emulation, ethernet, and USB, I used none of them, opted for add-on cards.
HD = Western Digital Enhanced IDE 64AA Total size 6131mb, 5502free
CPU = Intel Pentium Pro, 200 MHz
CD-ROM = LG CD-ROM CRD-8483B (48x speed)
Ethernet = D-Link DFE-530TX PCI Fast Ethernet Adapter
Sound = Creative Sound Blaster 16 Model CT1740
Memory = 256mb (128x2) Kingston KTH4294/128 sticks
Display = Diamond Multimedia Stealth 64 Dram S3 Trio32/64
CPU Fan = Thermaltake TT-8025TU manually adjustable
610k free mem using CTMOUSE for mouse support and SHSUCDX for CD-ROM support under MS-DOS

Check out the Thermaltake adjustable fan 😀 Ha, about the only thing left stock on this guy is the Mobo, CPU, PSU, and A Drive. Memory, Hard-Drive, CD-ROM Drive, CPU fan have all been replaced.
You can also see the double-sided tape I used in the lower left to hold a 120mm fan for extra cooling insurance.

Riser Card with 3 PCI and 2 PCI/ISA combo slots. What we have here from top to bottom is the SB16, the Ethernet, and Vid card.
Mmmmm.. yellow! 😖
