How long has it been...
wow after a while i see IE again
Stupid question but... no chance you can use both at the same time?
Also about the XBOX HDD, when I did mine back in the day, I seem to remember it would only take up to 120gb hdd?
Dunno... I have no way to test the board at the moment. There are no identification marks other than the Xcel2000 on the NB heatsink but looking at google images it seems that lots of boards had the same one. I guess that's what the SiS chipset shipped with.
Also, no luck today on the flea market. Still looking for that FSB133 slot 1.
Voodoo 5 5500 SLI???
1. Would a MAC 5500 PCI work with my PC?
2. I see that the 5500 has a set of headers that look similar to the SLI connectors on the Voodoo 2s. Is there any way to put two in SLI?
Someone is offering me a MAC 5500 but I don't know if I should bite. Even if it doesn't work in SLI, if it works with a PC I might take it as a backup.
What do you think?
I don't think a vid card made for a Mac will work in a Pc. Hence the reason they have mac version of popular Pc vid cards.
No idea but as The_mad_shot says, doubt they do, otherwise why make mac versions?
IIRC a BIOS flash makes it the windows version.
unsure if 5500 did SLI. how could they since boards didnt come with two AGP slots?
old macs used to have their ports backwards relative to pc, and so the pins on the card were backwards to match. i can't say whether that's the case with the 5500 though, sorry.
They had an early sli with the Vodooo Pci version cards.
That's untrue. The latest 3dfx drivers for Mac OS allow you to use PC cards with Macs.
Would I need a Mac for the bios flash?
just another GPU as the primary card, PCI i guess.
but really, you cant use two AGP cards. so it doesnt matter.
It's the PCI version.
So I could use my current AGP card to flash the PCI one, right?
You can't SLI with the Voodoo5, as it's already technically in SLI.
Yes, I know. I'm mainly interested to have a backup but only if it works with PCs
it should work, but its so long ago i have no idea.
OOOhhhh I smell quad sli heh. lol I think my old brain remembers talk of running 2 in tandam.
I'm going to pass. There are many unknowns and he just told me that he wants $80 for it.
I mean, it's complete and all but untested and I don't even know if I'm going to be able to use it and at that price... :shadedshu
That's probably a good call
A little bit of cable management:
I'll hit the flea market tomorrow. I hope to find a bigger hard drive and a FSB133 P3.
I love how that mobo proudly states that it is Year 2000 Compliant
You can see it nice and clear in pic #3
i've got pics. notice which end the x1 tab is on each motherboard. on the pc it is toward the inside, on the mac it is to the outside.
granted it's just the pci video slot, the other pci slots were "normal" , and it was only on the b&w g3 and the yikes g4, but those were popular macs and i had more than one of each myself, so i remembered this.
That port isn't backwards, it's a 3.3V PCI slot. The 5V slots are the "normal" ones.
The Voodoo Mac supports both.
I've seen it done, too. So your whale is fail.
