    Hi everyone! I've always thought of putting a PCI graphics card in this computer. Maybe TNT2? If you have any suggestions, I'd like to hear them! Happy weekend!

      Chubbyemu don’t think you’re paying attention to the comments on the video but if you are put a Voodoo 5 5500 in it

      I would suggest getting a Voodoo Banshee. You can get these with pci interface and it is basically a 2d/3d Voodoo 2. It should be a perfect partner for the cpu. Having a way to play 3dfx games would be a big plus on an old machine. Glide rocks!

        Here's how this video would normally go. "PC was a 19 yr. old computer presenting to the emergency room with hyperhemaemia. Hyper meaning high, hema referring heme, part of the molecule Hemaglobin which transports oxygen in humans, or in this case referring to iron, and emia meaning presence in blood. High iron presence in blood. At presentation his blood iron levels are over 200x the upper limit of normal. This means severe hard drive damage, but not only that, but the filter capacitors are failing. They should catch any excess iron, but they aren't. Without immediate treatment, iron will build up all around the body, causing a short, damaging both the PSU and the traces. ..."

          How come a gaming channel and a gamer become a scientific channel and a doctor?? You should make a video about it.

                                      This is great! I had an old Compaq AMD K6-2 475 that I overclocked to 560 by changing some (fsb) pin selectors on the motherboard. I also rounded the IDE cables, installed a window-modded DVD drive, and LED fans. Don't remember what graphics card I had installed though. Thanks for the trip down memory lane!
