    The Rise of Retrocomputing

    I've been into retro computing for over 10 years now. I was at local thrift store and saw an old AT computer for $5. I thought, what the hell. Why not? So I brought it home and have been hooked ever since. The golden age of computing is awesome nostalgia trips from my childhood. And now...

    LSI MegaRAID 9260-4i Card NOT Recognizing Any Drives!?

    Try a different cable. I had a cable set that wouldn't show any drives. It didn't matter what port I put the SFF-8087 to SATA cable in, it just would not work. I tried another cable, and viola. Works. So those cables do get bad, for whatever reason.

    Origin is selling a retro-inspired beige box PC

    I have two of those cases. Both with 386DX-33/44MHz boards in them with a whopping 4mb of RAM and 8MB of RAM (overkill for a 386),

    Restoring a 486 machine

    Yeah, i was looking for more info on the Headland. On that page it says its connected via local bus so that is a big plus for Windows 95. I think he tested it out and said it was faster than ET4000AX, which is one of the best ISA for DOS. Windows on the other hand.....with only 512K of...

    3.2TB SSD for $240

    Thanks! got one for 199.96. 3.2TB will replace a 500GB NVME gaming drive (thats 90% full) that I have installed via a PCIe card in one of my 16x slots. I seriously doubt I'll see a big difference in load times between the two, and at $200 for 3.2TB...yeah, no brainer.

    Ultrawide monitor Nvidia and freesync

    I have a 38" Acer ultrawide. I love size, refresh rate, but hate...HATE HATE HATE freesync, because its broken on this monitor model. Anything above 60Hz makes the screen "brigthtness" flicker if freesync is enabled. NOTHING solves it other than disabling freesync. There are lots of threads...

    VERY RARE!!! Advanced Gravis Ultrasound GUS PnP

    I had a similar experience with Wing Commander 1 and Sound Blaster 8-bit. When I got it, and then installed a Freak'n SPEECH PACK....WOW. I play around with a lot of vintage computers from an 8086 on up to Pentium 3's, though my sweet spot is the 386 to 486/Pentium 1 era of DOS and early...
