    :laugh: talk about sloooooooooow! They were pretty much bullet proof, but slow as hell even for the time period. LOL I am not even sure why I still have one of those, other than the nostalgic value LOL.

    When graphics cards where named like their user experience... Do note the solid caps, the card still works!

    [​IMG]

    ASUS X800XT PE. Best graphics card I have ever owned. Shame it didn't have SM3.0 support which eventually forced to replace it... Also unable to do 120Hz.

    Pretty much dead on the money GC! They are Skywell Magic 3D II cards, which in reality are Voodoo 2's. :rockout::rockout::rockout:

    Awesome old setup Norton!!!! Hell yea, running Doom with Windows 3.11 using "out and back" to run from windows to Dos and then back...........Damn man that brings back some very frigging awesome memories. :respect::respect::respect:

    Adding OJ and Norton to the OP!:rockout::rockout::rockout:

    Subscribing.
    I have some old stuff laying around. Time to take some pics. :)
    I could find more, people here dump old stuff all the time. Hard part is finding old stuff that still works.
    BTW, this thread should merge other threads that have old pics and include links to old-school projects, like TRWOV's.
    TRWOV, Norton and stinger608 say thanks.

    The threads aren't merged but the users are. A lot of us have been following TRWOV and Mad Shots projects.

    Actually thinking about a socket 939 project of my own :toast:
