welcome! I always give a thumbs up to dual cpu setups! I do want to ask why you chose W7 and not XP.

I ran a K6-3/500mhz system once a long time ago.... the ultimate space heater it was, no joke.

Just got this cute GX110 for free recently, came without expansion cards (empty riser card) and WinXP install. I've done some upgrades to make it a retro gaming PC.

Specs:
Pentium III Coppermine 933MHz
256MB PC133 SDRAM
CT6760 Voodoo Banshee 16MB PCI (with cooling mod)
CT4830 SB Live! Value
80GB WD Hard Drive

I had to mess around a while with the IRQ settings in the BIOS to get the sound card to work, but it came out nice in the end.

The K6-II+ or III+ was manufactured in 180 nm and runs much cooler than the original K6-II or III with 250 nm (both without +). My 500ANZ also does 600MHz with 1,95V VCore and runs very cool. It will not even run warm under Prime 95 load.

The + version was special produced for embedded systems or the mobile market.

Here's one of my favorite PIII systems; the Dell Inspiron 8100. This particular one has a 1GHz Pentium IIIM (Tualatin), and a 32MB Nvidia GeForce2Go.

This 8100 I actually got very recently as a replacement for my old 8100 that was kind of falling apart. I'm running a Windows XP/2000 dual-boot on this thing.

This machine also has a 1600 x 1200 display! It's one of my favorite features about these. I love the Inspiron 8000 series. They are just fantastic machines. Don't be fooled by the "Inspiron" brand name; these are just Latitudes in an Inspiron shell. I've actually heard people refer to these as "lower-end" or "budget" machines on several occasions, but that is not the case at all. A fully featured one of these 8100s was almost $3,000. Again, this is just a Latitude C810 in an Inspiron shell.
