Back in late 1990’s I purchased an HP Kayak workstation with dual Pentium II 400’s
It was the top of the line workstation available for its time.
I used it as a home computer.
I came with a Matrox millennium video card but I upgraded it to dual head Matrox G450 and
Run dual Sony trinitron 20” monitors

But around that time the Riva TNT and Voodoo video cards were popular for game play.
You are limited to Windows 2000 for best game play compatibility.
So you want a video card with good Windows 2000 driver and software support.

Nice! Have you tried NT4?

I've got a dual P3 Epox KP6-BS rig. With 1gb of RAM, the level of performance in NT4, Solaris 8, etc. is hilarious.

Oh lovely! I used to have a HP dual slot 1 machine which was thrown out at work like fifteen years ago. It originally came with two 450MHz PII's, but I decked it out with two PIII 1000MHz. It was an awesome machine, but as it was a server (mini fridge model with wheels) it was loud as heck and I didn't enjoy using it. Somewhere between a few moves I threw it out due to lack of space. I still regret it didn't occur to me at the time I could have just kept the mobo and put it in a nice case like you did. Ah well

Do you remember the model number?
