Thread: Building a new Pentium 60 rig.

  1. #1

    Talking Building a new Pentium 60 rig.

    I've had a ZEOS Pentium 60 board lying around in my hoard for decades now, finally getting around to building a system with it, picked up a nice period-correct full tower AT case and started in on the build. I still need to get a power supply figured out (going with modern AT supply and going to fab a mount plate for the case).

    So far I've got a CF>IDE adapter (2GB Sandisk card), Adaptec 2930 SCSI card, Sound Blaster Pro 2.0 (CT1600), SMC NE2000 NIC (with XTIDE BIOS ROM), and for now a cheap ISA VGA card for testing, I will get a proper era-correct PCI video card, probably a 14.4 or 28.8 modem, and maybe some other toys

    Nice, looks good so far. Wile a tick new for the system I away like the s3 virge.
    I like the SB pro too, that's a rather nice card for dos gaming.

    Yeah, I was kind of eyeing a Diamond Stealth with a S3 ViRGE chipset, it's certainly a contender.

    I've also got this Diamond card with a Trident chipset, but sadly it's missing its BIOS (had an uncovered EPROM window and the chip got corrupted, reads back as just random garbage in my programmer). I would love to use this too, since I have it, but sadly I can't find the BIOS for it anywhere.

    Trident's are not the best cards, still it sucks that its not working.
    The ATI mach64 is another good card. But they can be kind of costly.
