I had this from a friend several years ago, when she went for an upgrade.
The mainboard is with Intel 430HX chipset and onboard S3 Trio64V+ video.
When I got it, it had a Pentium 133 MHz CPU, 32 MB RAM (one of those rare EDO DIMM's).
I put in a Pentium MMX 233 MHz (works at 200), extra 96 MB RAM (these are EDO SIMM's, 2x16 and 2x32), CD-ROM, 4 GB HDD.
For an unknown reason, the usually good performer Trio64V+ is very slow, so I inserted another video card. For the moment it's a Matrox Millenium with 2 MB.
Soundcard is a Soundblaster 32 with 2 MB RAM. I received the system with a no-name Crystal 4235, SB Pro ans WSS compatible.
I think it's a very good platform for those late DOS games, and even for the early 3d's that didn't need hardware acceleration. Unreal flies, and so are many other games.
