Getting my PIAGP build put together. I'll post pics one I figure out exactly which video card and sound cards I am going to use.
So far the general specs are:
Backplane - IEI PCIAGP-13S2 v2.3 with the PISA-KIT01 ISA bridge card (should give full ISA support including DMA)
SBC card - IEI PIAGP-865EVG
CPU Pentium 4 Northwood 3.2/512k/800
RAM 2x512MB DDR-400
Slots I have available:
3x PCI (4 if I used a single slot video card)
6x 16-bit ISA (there may also be enough space for an 8-bit card in the slot next to the SBC but it would be really squishy)
3 of the ISA slots only have enough room for cards that are about the length of the slot itself.
2 of the ISA slots can have long-ish cards.
1 of the ISA slots can have a full length ISA card IF I modify the drive cage mount.
Video cards I am thinking about using:
ATI x800xt PE
Nvidia Quadro FX3000
I've also got some less high end AGP cards. Pretty sure those are the fastest I have that have WIN98SE drivers.
As far as sound cards, here is what I am thinking.
I'm thinking for PCI an Audigy 2ZS and a Vortex 2 for Windows 98SE.
For a PCI card for DOS I'll probably use an AOPEN Yamaha YMF744.
That leaves me with what to use for ISA.... Maybe an AWE64.
What else? I've literally got a huge number of sound cards.
Whatever I put in, it will probably change at some point, but I would like a starting point.
Turtle Beach Tropez Plus
Terratec EWS64 XL
Gullimot Maxi Studio ISIS
Probably something with real/clone OPL3 just in case something doesn't work quite right with the YMF744 PCI card.
