I am currently working on a Slot 1 Pentium II build. The goal with this system was to replicate my first computer.
Pentium II 400 Mhz
Asus GeForce 2 MX400 V7100PRO / 64MB
Seagate 20GB IDE HDD
Realtek 8139 Ethernet Adapter
CF to IDE adapter
Sound Blaster CT4620
I wanted to go with a beige tower but I was not able to source one. I've decided to go with a relatively simple modern case, with a side window, good cable management possibilities and an optical bay for a CD/DVD drive Unfortunately, all the cases I looked at with the drive bay were either ugly as sin or wrong form factor - I've decided to cross out the optical bay requirement (not a good idea for anyone considering a Win9x build). I've done some minor appearance tweaks to the case. Removed the front RGB leds and replaced all fans. The front fans are addresable RGB, and can be regulated for color and brightness or turned off altogether.
I wanted to go with a 3DFX VooDoo 2 but as we all know the ship has sailed for those cards in terms of buying one for a reasonable price now. GeForce 2's are relatively plentiful and still can be had for a low price. Additionally the card should be able to run all the games from the 98/99 time frame fairly well.
I am still in process of putting everything together but wanted to share a few pictures.
