For a few years now I've had in the back of my mind of recreating the system I had around 96-98 but the biggest stumbling block was finding an AT case which was similar too or ideally the same as I had. Nothing quite took my fancy and I figured getting the exact same case was a long short especially since my memory of what it looked like exactly was a little fuzzy so it was kept on the back burner. And then this came along which instantly caught my eye. It looked very familiar but I wasn't 100% sure, but the more and more I looked at it the more sure I was as the details started came back to me. So I brought it and seeing it up close 100% confirmed for me it was the case! I was stoked! Click to view full size! But then another detail bugged me about the case, the Ritron case badge. So familiar but I was coming up blanks. And then the fact it had an Intel 430 VX chipset Motherboard, the same as was originally in my system when we brought it. Could this be the same white box brand we purchased all those years ago? Surely not? Click to view full size! Thanks to JidaiGeki's post in the recent acquisitions thread, it is! Purchased from Rod Irving Electronics and as soon as I heard that name saw they had a shop in Adelaide (where I grew up and was living at the time), that was all the confirmation I needed. Holy crap! And here it is courtesy of the Way Back Machine.... There's nothing like a classic - like a fine sport car design of the highest calibre..... so is our Ritron Classic System. Packed with the highest performance features ever found in a computer system. It will cater for your needs for ages to come! Your search is finally over...... Haha! Love the sell along with the 90's future hot rod! lol The specs of the PC I now have with what we originally had in brackets. Going off the specs at the time from their website it seems this has had a couple of little upgrades. Intel Pentium 133 MHz (Intel Pentium 100 MHz) Intel 430 VX Chipset motherboard 32 MB EDO RAM (16 MB EDO) 2MB Diamond Stealth 3D Virge Video Card (don't recall but I think it was just a generic 2D card) 52X CD-ROM (12X Speed CD-ROM) 8.4GB HDD (1.6GB HDD) A few pics: A lot of dust build up but very minimal wear and tear. The only rust I see so far is just on the back of the case where the screws have chipped away the paint on the cover exposing the bare metal. Easy fix. Click to view full size! Still boots and has the previous owners Windows 95 installation! Click to view full size! Some interesting artwork. Click to view full size! The Plan This weekend I plan on disassembling it, giving it a good clean and installing Windows 98SE. Upgrade wise it's all a bit up in the air at the moment. I originally planned on replacing the board with an FIC VA-503+ / K6-2 400 combo I have which was the same board my PC was originally upgraded to about a year or so later. But since I found out it is practically the original system I had (with a few minor changes) I'm tempted to leave it as is and instead just upgrade the CPU to a 200MMX (also like I did back then). Potential/planned upgrades: Upgrade the CPU to a 200 MMX. Replace the CD-ROM with a Creative CD-ROM for now, but eventually looking to get the Creative Encore Dxr2 DVD Kit like I had or something similar. I still have the card but no drive! Replace the S3 Virge with my trusty Diamond Stealth II S220 (Rendition V2100) I kept all these years. Would DEARLY love to find the Creative 3D Blaster PCI (Rendition V1000) which was my very first 3D accelerator but they seem to be as rare as hens teeth. That's it for now and I will try and update this thread as I go long.
