With 8 years I discoverd my first computer contact, Dads PET2001. After Pong, VCS, C64, Amiga, ST, SNES and MD came nothing for a long time, but 1996 I bought my first own PC in a german electrical market.
It was an AT with a Pentium 150, this one and the marked monitor:
I own the catalog since this time, you can DL a complete scan here: https://filehorst.de/d/dJkhcqGg
With no expirience I had a lot of trouble with this thing. I´ve got a new CD-Rom, HDD and only with another mainboard the PC ran smoothly. I sold him after the Pentium II was released.
In 2019, by chance and without looking for it, I got the same case:
The condition is not so good with yellowing, rust and scratches.
Over time I have collected some hardware. The goal is NOT to rebuild it 1:1, but close, just as if you had more money back then 😁
this Network case - only cleaning, rust preparation , no new paint - and some gentle retrobright (only sun)
Pentium 150@ 166 or P166mmx (current P233mmx)
Azza PT-5IV = Sockel 7 AT Mainboard with Intel VX chipset, 4x ISA and USB
32 or 64MB FPM, EDO or SDRAM (I will test it)
Matrox Mystique with 2+2 RAM
AWE32 + RAM + Wavetable or a AWE64 Glod
no HDD, only CF cards
Yesterday I start testing the HW stability. For a simple way with a faster CPU and Win98se.
