My Old PC - Early 1999


My AMD PC from early 1999. I loved this PC! The AMD K6-2 chip rocked and at the time nothing could touch the 3Dfx Voodoo2 (unless you had 2 Voodoo2s via SLI). I also loved my Gravis GRiP system, that was so much fun, 4 controllers on one PC!

Such happy memories. Shortly after this I upgraded the CPU to an AMD K6-III 400Mhz which was really swift thanks to it's extra large L2 cache plus the motherboard 1mb L3 cache.

The Grip! Perfect device to enable me to thrash you regularly at NHL and FIFA! :-)

Yes thanks Mark!

Also some more trivia about this PC. Before I upgraded to the K6-2 I had a K6 200Mhz chip. I thought it had gone faulty and threw it away. When Dave McDonald came round he took it out of the bin, put it in his PC and it worked! The easiest, cheapest upgrade he ever got! Ask him about it, it's folklore!
