How would a DX33/40 do in Ultima VII Pt. 2? I guess U5SX 486-33 is probably a sweet spot CPU for both games?

There's a thread for that 😜

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.

Looking for a motherboard? You can find it in Ultimate Hardware 2019: http://www.win3x.org/uh19/motherboard/search

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.

Starting Windows 95. . .
