Hi, I am looking for a thin client for 98SE (well the IGEL H700C is on the larger side I suppose) however from the looks of it it can potentially house a PCI GPU, wondering if anyone has any experience with it:

Wanted to ask before picking one up.

Thanks.

Googling trying to run Win98SE leads no where good on the IGEL's. https://www.parkytowers.me.uk/thin/Igel/ud/ud … 00C/win98.shtml
If it wont run on a M300 doubt it will run on H700....
Maybe a Wyse VX0 ?? https://www.parkytowers.me.uk/thin/wyse/vx0/win98.shtml

Hate posting a reply and then have to edit it because it made no sense 😁 First computer was an IBM 3270 workstation with CGA monitor.

If you want to use PCI card look for `Fujitsu Siemens Futro S400`: https://www.parkytowers.me.uk/thin/Futro/s400/

It has the same CPU and chipset as HP T5720 (tested by Phil) but it is IMO a better choice because:
* Case is big enough to install one of these chinese GeForce FX5500 PCI
* You can install CF card inside, additional adapters are not needed (16 GB Sandisk card didn't work for me, but 4 GB Transcend was fine)

CPU performance is on level with P3 or Athlon 1100, so it should be more than enough for games released till 2002/3.
