Default Passing the torch

Well the time has come to dismantle our old beast of a computer. I already miss it, but it will live on as a wall hanging in either my room or my brother's.

She is a good 12 or so years old and served us well, but was replaced today by my old Dell which I have handed down to my parents. Here are the specs that I know:

200MHz Pentium MMX
(Surprise) Motherboard, see pics below
Creative sound card, which apparently wasn't PCI
32MB RAM
Some kind of GPU, but I couldn't identify it well

On to the pics, but a little story first. This is basically the first time I've dug around in this computer. There was a huge mess of ribbon cables and PSU wires all over the place, so I never really saw inside. Well finally getting to the board and dusting it off, I noticed it was in fact a very nice ASUS board. So here's to 12 proud years of ASUS! (Both my brother and I are avid users of their products, in addition to building around their mobos)




My new background for a while:

That's what the sound card plugged into. The GPU was actually PCI.

4 ISA slots\4 PCI slots (ISA slots run at a whopping ~9.3mhz)
just after the age of CPU core decreases, all CPU's use to run at 3.3V this one has manual voltage config via jumpers
6 SIMM slots
8 onboard RAM IC's
intel chipset that is date to 1994, thats 13 years old! HA! mine is older
