  • Guess the spec...

    Here's a fun game...

    I've just acquired a "new" PC.

    I'll post photos of random parts, and you guys guess the spec and year

    Here's some teasers to get you going.... 1 point for each correctly identified part... I might even send a prize to the person who gets the most right *cough* Wonderlust *cough*


    Motherboard



    IO Panel ????

    Fractal R4 (shhh!) 3570k, z77x-d3h, 16gb, R9-270X, 240gb SSD, 2tb mirror w/ 60gb cache drive

    ISA bus...

    So will be a late 486 early Pentium Board.

    will be Baby AT form factor with an I/O card.

    Board looks like it may be an early Gigabyte offering?

    Cirus Logic graphics card.

    Sound blaster 16 or an Asound Isa Soundcard?

    I am not losing weight! I'm getting rid of it. I have no intention of finding it again!

      I knew you'd be all over this like a rash

      I haven't got the full spec myself yet Some excellent guesses so far, not all right though

        Is that a BNC network card in there?

          Oh yes!
          And Parallel port for the printer, and another for the 56k Modem


          It boots, and it runs Windows98 with a whopping 128MB of RAM... yes, MB

            Super socket 7?

            Think it's quite late as not many baby AT boards had PS2 connectors iirc

              Board itself doesn't have ps2, the keyboard is one of the older bigger plugs. Forgotten the name looks like a giant ps2 port.
              Ps2 is for the mouse and on one of the expansion slots

                I had something very similar spec when I was going through Uni in 1998. I had a P2-400 but AMD K6's were out around that time too. 3DFX Voodoo 2 card made all the difference playing HL1 and FF7

                  Ah one of those.. That's an old system then. Could be as 'new' as the Pentium 1 era possibly though?

                    Our first proper home PC had 16mb ram. Ran everything nicely

                    But then we were upgrading from a BBC Model B and an Amstrad PCW9512.

                        This system looks like it pre-dates my birth!

                        You should really bin it and buy a VAG

                              i was meaning an internal connector on the motherboard.

                              Most Baby AT boards required a Serial (9 pin) mouse
