*rage mode* graaaaaaaahhh *end of rage* GRATZ
I agree! Throw the voodoo card in an ole AGP motherboard, install Windows 98SE, and load up some original Unreal Tournament and Quake III
Also, here is a huge list of 3dfx drivers over at Guru3D:
I'm missing the manual though.
Yea dang, that is what I need is the box. Probably never find one though.
You think that's bad. I'm missing the box, the manual AND the card.
Congratulations on the acquisition stinger!
That was funny JP!
It is such an awesome ole card. I almost hate to try and install it in anything for fear of something happening to it, but what the hell is the use of getting one if I am not going to fire it up. LOLOL
Overclock it till it MELTS. You need every FPS in those old DOS shooters
COMMANDER KEEN!!!!! but ... nope a Vodoo 5 5500 will not be useful on that one ;D
DAMNED BE THE SELLER OF THIS! ship only to France .... pfeh! it cost near nothing to ship it to Switzerland and i would be the one paying the fees ... but no : no outland delivery ... curse the heretic! (wait wrong sentence...)
Merry Christmas to all fellow nostalgic hardware members!!!!!!!!!
damned you where faster! MERRY CHRISTMAS!
20 minutes before going to job ahahaha ....
im chasing after :
this one because it was my 1st agp card
the rest is because i don't have those chip/card in my collection
oh new and still original boxed ... wait ... it's on the border of being Fugly... but i don't have that brand either.
I actually have a couple of the S3 PCI cards. One of them I use to test older motherboards with.
Here's something I think you'll like, system pic within the submission.
Yes, I don't mind cranking up the MHz with it, even today.
Of course that's not all of it - The older hardware I have of course.
Sweet Asus dual processor board man! Awesome setup Bones!!!!
Adding you to the original post bro.
I picked this up a few years ago from an individual who said they didn't know if it even worked or not and was wanting $10 for it, that included the original pair of MP 2200+ CPUs.
Checked it over, got it to boot and reflashed the BIOS, the original CPU's showed as being "Good" and turned it loose from that point foward.
I'll probrably set it up before long and see how much higher I can get it.
EDIT: Here's another classic I have and I had never heard of the brandname "Premio" before but I have one.
Here's the post when I first got it and was looking for info on the board - And trying to figure out exactly what I had.
Still works to this day too.
Re: Socket 3 CPUs
Very cool. I have never heard of a "Premio" brand as well. Hmm, wonder who they are/were?
Kind of an odd lay out on the board though.
same here ... and i should not feel ashamed, that if i would have heard of that brand, with such a name like "Premio" my feeling and my logic would have whispered to me and say "WTF IS THIS, STAY AWAY!" and be wrong at the same time... dunno i have a strong repulse feeling on certain brand names ...
If you missed it, here's the link I did find and it has some info on the board within. Hasn't been updated in years and I'm lucky I even found it along with the info I was able to get and archive.
I'm also lucky mine is the "H" model, not the lesser "G" model they had.
EDIT: Just found this and looks like they may have been around longer then I would have thought, from what I can tell at least until 2007 - May even still be in business but I kinda doubt that. PremioPC.com - BIOS Updates/System FAQs/User Manuals
I believe I'll setup the Premio and let it run before long.
Might even try a bench or two with it just to see how pitiful it does for fun. I know it works but the last time I tried it, it woudn't install an OS.
We'll see what goes this time around.
Rebuilt. Up and running again.
That is frigging awesome JP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I have a NF7-S that I got from The_Mad_Shot several months ago that I really really need to get fired up.
I think thats the sleep standby battery, if you put it in sleep and then change the main batterys it wouldn't crash
On that picture there are some black square blocks close to the floppy connector can you show a close up picture of them?
Search for an Bios Battery if they are drained over the years they short and you can't boot anymore....
any one remember these dallas RTC chips with Bios Battery inside? pure evil those, now get a dremel out ^^
Talking about PS2 Mice...
Dunno how old it is, I have lost count, it came with my first ever pc... but it is the only mouse I have right now, I play bf4 with it just fine, although the mouse speed needs to be cranked up to the maximum values possible xD
ATI Radeon HD3450 Silent (Not sure if 256megs or 512megs of DDR2
3D Fuzion GeForce 6200 LE Turbocache / 128MB DDR / Supporting 256MB with Turbocache
Yep, I think you are correct; that is the "on board" battery. I don't think that MRCL has been on here in ages, so hard to say if he will even see your post.
