I was doing some thinking today about the Quake 3 box and my original idea of building the computer to run my Voodoo 5500...

For one my Voodoo5 has a bad second GPU and the Intel 845GEBV2 Motherboad is slotted wrong..So i went with an old 9000 i never use and it worked well..Today i decided that if i cant run the voodoo5 ill run a direct competitor from the same year and slapped in a ATI Radeon 7200 32DDR AGP.I also Decided to use the decent onboard audio for simplicty instead of the Sound blaster live.

Running DX7 i updated Quake3 to 1.32 and ran the Four.DM-68 Demo and came up 84FPS..Not bad!!Thats at 1024-768/32bit/Everything cranked..Ill have a new vid soon

Windows 2000 Pro SP4 DX7
Intel D845GEBV2
Intel P4 3.06/512/533 HT(HT off)
1gb DDR333 System ram
ATI Radeon 7200 32MB DDR 164core/164ram AGP4X
WD400 40gb HD
Winsys 350wPSU
CD/RW Drive
Onboard Soundmax Audio
No name case
