I'm restoring a system I had as a kid and installing a few upgrades that I would have wanted then, but wasn't able to afford. (Previous thread for context: P3V4X and 9600XT issue)
At the moment it has:
- Asus P3V4X Mobo (Apollo133)
- PIII 550
- 384MB PC133
- PCI Radeon 9200SE
- VIA USB 2.0 card
- 60GB SSD on an IDE adaptor (not period correct, I know, but I hate waiting for Windows to load 😜)
- IDE DVD drive
I had a 9600XT I planned to use for this system build, but wasn't able to get it to work and the Rage 3D Pro is proving to be a little slow for the games I want to play. I'd really like to get a fast Radeon 9x00 series card, as that was what I would have upgraded to as a kid, but I'm open to alternatives. The issue is that this board seems to be pretty picky about what AGP cards it will work with and I don't want to have to buy a bunch of AGP cards just to test them, so I'm really curious as to what other people are running in this board.
I'm mostly interested in Windows games released between 1996-02, but I may want to run some DOS games at some point as well.
