Ok, I have a few questions.
first let me describe what I have. This will be the basis for all the questions.
This is the setup:
I have a computer with an MSI Motherboard (MS-5169) With Aladdin 5 Chipset Chipset (I think this is right)
The board accepts PII Or Pentium MMX and AMD K6/K6-2/III Processors. Depending on which you want to use. (it sports a Socket 7 Surface mount ZIF) Supports 2x AGP (see video card below for capabilities)
The board has onboard:
1x Parallel Port (supports SPP/EPP/ECP Mode
2x IDE 33MB's Ports
1x Floppy port capable of supporting 2 FDD with 360k, 720k, 1.2MB, 1.44MB, ans 2.88MB Disks (anthing under the 1.2MB is most likely 5.25" and could be 3.5" as well)
2x Serial Ports (COM-A + COM-B)
4x 32-bit Master PCI Bus Slots and 3 ISA Bus Slots (support for 3.3v/5v PCI cards)
2x AGP (Correct me on the speed if there is a conflict) 66/133MHz 3.3v)
3 slots Memory capable of 256MB in each slot (Up to 768MB Total)
Ram supports 3.3v EDO and SDRAM Dimms
Upgraded to latest Rev. Plug & Play
Supports Soft Power-off
Support 512k Pipelined Cache Memory.
Cacheable Area: 128MB
The Processor is a 400MHz AMD K6-2 Clocked to 450MHz w/ 1MB Cache
1x Yamaha Sound Card (Sports Hardware MIDI Synthesizer)
1x USB 1.1 2 port card
1x RealTek 10/100Mb's Ethernet LAN Card
1x LinkSys 11Mb's WIFI Card
Trident Blade 3D - 4MB VRAM (not enough, I know) Hits 1280x 1024 Rez. at High Color (16-bit)
all other Rez can use True Color.
I have a 40x CD-rom in 1 of the Four 5.25" bay
the Hard Drive is an 80GB Seagate
I have 2 1.44MB Floppy drives hooked up to the FDD Controller
What is the Approximate worth of this system.
What is the equivelent Macintosh to this (NOT PRICE, Speed)
What is this related to an Intel system (P-1 [w w/o MMX?] / P-II) and the speed of the equivelent.
I only work on the systems and don't bother with the specs. This time I am a little curious.
What do you think?
