This kicks so much ass for all the right reasons

Keep it up, can't wait to see that old box get some paint !

This really brings back good memories for me. When I worked running a PC shop some guy came in saying he was going back to the USA where he was from and did we want to buy his rig cheap. My boss said "No, we don't buy PCs" but something inside me told me to take down his number.

I phoned him out of work and went round his house and paid him £75 for his PC. When I took the side off I couldn't believe it... 3Dlabs Oxygen 32mb with two Voodoo 2 cards in SLI

He must have spent thousands on it.

Yes, it must!

This gets me all nostalgic; I've been wanting to do something like this for a while but never had the time. And now that I do I've spent most my money on a newer rig (or rather I'm still spending ). Ah well, priorities

I'm waiting for better weather so I can paint the cases in my workshop. It is just to cold for now. But I made allready space for it in the workshop!

AWESOME This week I gonna pickup some donated hardware (Complete Rig in pieces like this one) + lots of harddrives videocard nics soundcards floppy zip cd dvd drives. And there is a 3Dlabs Oxygen 32mb in the stack of hardware!!!

How is your experience with the 3Dlabs card? Is it worth trying it in a system?

alpenwasser on this system I spend no money! Gaming can be cheap! For me finding the parts for low prices or free is just part of the fun!

At the time I got the Oxygen it was worth about £450. The only other card on the market at that time with 32mb was the Geforce 2? and it was about £500. Of course back in those days I didn't use frame counters but the games I played flew along (Midtown Madness, Motocross Madness, Half Life etc).

3Dlabs were UK based too so I used quite a few of their cards as it was a great way of getting amazing OpenGL performance for less than consumer cards.

I found a new Asus p3b-f motherboard for my retro rig.because it is not 100% stable. I found this board on a local ebay. I paid 10 euro including 6.75 euro shipping
