I stopped posting because everyone else stopped posting.
It would be nice if things picked up here again, but I don't think it'll happen with vcfed and VOGONs around, not unless somebody puts some s ...

Is your drive 3.5" or 5.25"? Installing a 5.25" HDD in a 5150 is normally considered a bad idea, because the original power supply was only 63.5Watts and wasn't up to the job. I think s ...

I think keeping at least one 360k drive in the system would be pretty cool. They're becoming kind of rare to see in working condition. Usually if you replace the rubber belt and lubricate a few pieces ...

You're misreading the manual. 50MHz is the fastest bus speed supported, but the DX/2 chips run at twice the bus speed (they are clock doubled), so if you set the jumpers for 33MHz, your system should ...

Depends what kind of support.

I only like to buy things with good driver support.

NT4 is good on a 486, but you need at minimum 64MB of RAM. 32 isn't going to cut the mustard.

No such thing as the "best" SB16 based card. They were all flawed in some way. Though many members of the VOGONS forum would agree with you that AWE32 is best. Even then, there are still sev ...

Actually the interest in vintage PCs has increased. The traffic has just moved elsewhere. Probably the two best places to go are vintage-computer.com and VOGONS

Last I checked, an intel 486 went for about $5, and a Pentium Pro went for $12. AMD/Cyrix chips usually have a lot less gold on them.

I've personally seen the Socket 4 --->Socket 7 adapters. They are very rare though. You could actually upgrade a P60 to a K6-2 400MHz as it supported low voltages and split rail MMX chips.

I think selling some of the parts can be worth your time, as long are they are not run of the mill junk. Even some 486 and Pentium equipment can have value, but you do have to know what people are loo ...

The header just passes an analogue audio signal back to the integrated or OEM SB16. There should be solder pads on the card for standard 3.5mm headphone jack, and possibly even a CD-ROM type internal ...

I recently got an SB 1.5 as well, though mine has the CMS sockets filled. In my opinion the CMS chips are the only reason to use an SB 1.5 over an SB 2.0. As far as I know the CMS chips are off the sh ...
