I have a few systems that I rarely use.

Retro rigs so far:

1) P 233 MMX
2) K6-III - 400
3) K7 classic - 700
4) P-III 1 ghz

Maybe a new Slot 1? Would fill the gap. IDK

I could remove the P233 and slide in a 486 instead?

As for gaming the PIII is more than enough to have me covered.

Thanks for any answer.

The Athlon seems superfluous since you already have a faster Pentium 3 system.

The Pentium MMX can be slowed down to 486 and 386 speeds with ease, so I wouldn't replace it with either of those.

PC#1: Pentium MMX 166 / Soyo SY-5BT / S3 Trio64V+ / Voodoo1 / OPTi 82C930 / AWE64
PC#2: Celeron 466 / Abit ZM6 / Voodoo3 / AWE64 Gold / YMF744 / SC-155
PC#3: AthlonXP 1700+ / Abit KT7A / GeForce4 / SBLive / ALS100
PC#4: Athlon64 3700+ / DFI LanParty / 9600GT / X-Fi Titanium

Since you rarely use the current systems, maybe it's a sign there's no need for another box?

I know, I know! 😁
Just thinking it doesn't make sense to build and put something together unless there's a need for it.

In fact it's remove/add/transform. Your opinion to understand what I want 😀
And yes, total blasphemy.

I had more but dismantled, no sense having slot and socket Piii.
Athlon XP and a 939, AM2. No point in a FM1/2. I have 775 for that.
I found a K6-2 in a case I thought empty, one more to dismantle.
All the cases are in storage now except this one.

I took all down to those 4 in post 1, but I'm trying to get, as a retro guy and a collector, the most with my feet on the ground.
My space is limited, otherwise I'd have just left all as it was.

Well, it's hard to make room. And it no, it doesn't spark joy 🤣

The k6 might be a good option to use for a LAN system in the future to play games with the p1. Kinda like having the p3 and Athlon classic, fun having a pair of almost similar gen systems to run a couple local games with someone.

Main pc: Asus ROG laptop. I7-6700HQ, GTX 960M 4gb, 16gb DDR4.
Retro PC: Soyo P4S Dragon, 3gb ddr 266, 120gb Maxtor, Geforce Fx 5950 Ultra, SB Live! 5.1

I would sell everything and keep just PIII as it can cover all those rigs when FSB is set to 66Mhz or L1 cache is disabled. If I had free space and time I would build a late 486 rig (5x86 133Mhz).

Pentium III 750E, ECS P6BXT-A+, 384MB RAM, NVIDIA GeForce FX 5600 128MB, Voodoo 2 12MB, 80GB HDD, Yamaha SM718 ISA, 19" AOC 9GlrA
Athlon 64 3400+, MSI K8T Neo V, 1GB RAM, NVIDIA GeForce 7600GT 256MB, 250GB HDD, Sound Blaster Audigy 2 ZS

I thinking ATX + "old computer" (as you have plenty of new stuff), there's only one option - the NuXT.
mATX + turbo XT 😀

It costs too much for my tastes but has its place in my to-get list 😀
I had no idea it existed. Very nice and clean.

Problem solved, a friend got rid of a G4 350 mhz.
Gonna put all the unused parts in my storage room.
