Oct 17, Messages: The ideal case would be to use a Voodoo 3 PCI but alas I have none, so I am considering filling that remaining PCI slot with a Voodoo 2, which I think would make games up to playable at x or x Part of me wants to stick with the SB, but I have no idea how good its software wavetable is SF2 compatible? Return to General Old Hardware. Integrated graphics were awful on these older machines. Can’t you just take out the sb and replace it with an ISA sound card?

Part of optipoex wants to stick with the SB, but I have no idea how good its software wavetable is SF2 compatible? I can’t get past X 16 Color mode.

As for the graphics problems, which a video card would solve, remember that this is an OptiPlex, which was meant for business use originally, which means that video wasn’t all that improtant to them back then, so don’t be surprised if there vx110 much upgrading available with the onboard video chip.

You can’t log in, since you do not have an account yetbut you should be able to Enter a Tag I can slow it down to a Celeron or up to a G110 This is all theoretical, I have no idea how to do this and never ran two sound cards in one PC before, so all tips and pointers are welcome!
It seems that you’ve already figured that out, but out of the choices specified on the OP, I’d go with choices D or E. Anyone know what drivers I need? Can’t you just take out the sb and replace it with an ISA sound card? The original configuration of this PC as it is reported to vgz shipped is as below: Power switch Green flash JohnCrossSep 17,in forum: I also used to have a GX and still have the motherboard, I also have the riser which may be the one you are looking for.
With that all said if your excited to go down the G then that’s definitely what you should do, even if you end up changing things around later anyway. If you’re not already familiar with forums, watch our Welcome Guide to get started. This site hosts no abandonware.

The has a better performance no doubt but the has better VGA out. I just hung a small fan using cable ties off the holes in the card above corner, in gx110 case your soundcard which I del see has them most do. When buying the PC I was told that it had received some upgrades. Now even though I don’t want my kids anywhere near the good computers, I do love then enough to want them enough to have at least X Colors minimum using the on board video adapter.

I would use onboard and have SLI optipkex this, is a good match for a SLI setup, and knowing your using SLI makes you feel special well I do anyway D3D games will suffer though, but you have to have an excuse to fire up your other systems from time to time!
Re ISA, I don’t think its a big deal either, the CPU is fast enough to play dos games from within windows which gets around a lot of sound issues as long as you are ok with it not being true dos. Sep 13, Messages: Again its not a period build, Use whatever suits your needs. I would think the Voodoo cards would be fine in delk slim line case, maybe add a fan over the cards to get a bit of extra airflow to be on the safe side.
At least with Voodoo 2, its still useful for glide and even though you do have a v3 based PC the SLI justifies the setup.
It feel like sort of a sweet spot for the era, and is the one I’ve been using the most. Why would that make you unable to use an ISA sound card? Value and use the MX in this system. Obviously some of the fx110 is pretty close to what is in the manufacturing log, but not quite.
Join overother people just like you! Keep the CPU the way it is, at least until you’ve tested enough games to decide whether it’s too fast or too slow, then go from there.
