Home > Computer Collection
Named for Trinity from The Matrix (an appropriate reference for 99/2000), and also its motherboard model.
My Dad worked for a lady that was cleaning out her late husband's extensive collection of old gadgets and parts. I recieved this PC from my family around 2014. It had Windows 2000 installed, and some quack medical software, along with lots of porn hidden in the system files. I erased all that, and after trying a few different versions of Windows, I settled on Windows 98. I made it my machine for high-end 90's and early 2000s Windows 98 gaming.
It originally had 1536MB of RAM on 3x 512MB modules, I downgraded that to 512MB when I installed Windows 98. The original floppy drive was dead.
