The Voodoo Machine

As some of you may know, I recently acquired a Voodoo 5 5500 AGP video card from Robbie, and have built a 'Classic' gaming machine with the card at it's heart. Below are the mostly complete machine specs:

AMD K6-2 500 processor 100mhz FSB
Diamond Micronics C200 SUper Socket 7 Motherboard
256 MB SDRAM
3DFX Voodoo 5 5500 64MB AGP video card
Adaptec 2940 W/UW SCSI card
2 Seagate 4.3 GB Ultarwide SCSI hard drives
2X2X24X Smart & Friendly CD Writer
Soundblaster AWE64 Gold sound card
Windows 98 SE
Voodoolizer 1.05 drivers


Supposedly these drivers are Directx 9 compatible - I'll be testing that theory as soon as I get some free time. So far I have been able to run a mess of old DOS games that act up under XP, and have been able to load and play the entire Wing Commander Collection. I also managed to run Sum of All Fears, which is a DX8 based game as far as I know (it's a dumbed down movie-license version of Ghost Recon). Should be interesting to see what I can do with the machine.
