    I agree! Throw the voodoo card in an ole AGP motherboard, install Windows 98SE, and load up some original Unreal Tournament and Quake III :laugh:

    Also, here is a huge list of 3dfx drivers over at Guru3D:

    :laugh: 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

    I actually have a couple of the S3 PCI cards. One of them I use to test older motherboards with.

    Thanks man!
    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.

    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.
    http://ftp.premiopc.com/faqs/219hfaq.htm

    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.

    I think thats the sleep standby battery, if you put it in sleep and then change the main batterys it wouldn't crash :p
    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 ^^

    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

    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.
