[Rebuild Log] The old 3dfx system from Hell

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 



OK so my old, well my first system I ever build has been giving me crap for the last year. So I thought about rebuilding it thumb.gif
Now I do have a newer system (x58) But I get just about as much use out of this old pos bucket as my new system.

Here is the old system as of now. Not much to look at. I'm kind of ashamed to even post it.

specs
pentium 3s @1.4ghz
GA-6VXC7-4X mobo (via Apollo pro)
voodoo 3000 gpu
1gb ram
ISA GUS PnP pro sound card
40gb WD HDD

TO DO'S
New case
New GPU (3dfx 4500 or 5500)
INSTALL NEW OS (win98 and linux or 7)
New HDD
New optic drive
SATA Card
New PSU (maybe)
EMI SHIELD FOR SOUND CARD
RECAP SOUND CARD (maybe)
ADD 8MB OF RAM TO SOUND CARD (maybe)


PARTS LIST (NEED)
3 80mm deltas fans
Case (cooler master 360)
PCI SATA Card
GPU

PARTS LIST (HAVE)
DVD Drive
HDD (200GB WD)
2 120mm deltas
OS

As of now I am making the EMI shield
After That I will make a few recordings of the sound card playing some midi's, then I'm off to installing the new OS's.
I will be getting the case later this week or early next week. that is when the fun will begin. I will be using a coolermaster elite 360 case.

This is the last time anyone will see the card nude. (if it works) I covered the AI foil in tape to prevent any shorts.
I'll be removing the shielding it if dos not cut down on the background nose, something is telling me the nose in coming from the card it self. (80 dB signal to noise ratio)

Ordered the case and fans. The case should be here on tusday. Still looking for a 4500 or 5500, I also found a volt mod gide for my voodoo 3000. I'll be reinstalling the is tonight.
