Hi Folks! I've finally decided to post details about my "vintage" mac setup on the Internet! I say vintage with quotes, as I don't really know if a 9600 would count as vintage... I also don't know if I'd call it a conquest, it's more a collection I've built up starting around late 90s.. It's a little.... Crazy. But I love it! If I can think of one community that would appreciate these specs, I think this one would be it.. I will try to post pictures later on this week, maybe tomorrow after work! For now, take a peek at this: --- BEGIN SETUP DETAILS --- Base System: PowerMac 9600/350MHz CPU Upgrade: Sonnet G4 1GHz CPU Board Memory: 1GB (Could go up to 1.5GB) Monitor: Sun 21" Display (Maxed at 1600x1200 @ 85Hertz) Apple Desktop Bus Input Devies: Datadesk Mechanical Keyboard w/ Trackball mouse integrated & detached number pad Touchpad PCI Cards: Aurora Fuse Video Caption Card ProTools AudioMedia III Card 3dfx Voodoo 5500 for Mac Video Card OrangePC 550 (I think it's a 550...) DOS Card (w/ Pentium MMX 233MHz CPU and 256MB of RAM) Adaptec SCSI Card (Not sure on model, but i think the main internal port is labeled LVD) Orange Micro USB 2.0/Firewire 400 Card USB Periphrials: Microsoft USB Optical Mouse Macally USB Gamepad (looks like the PS1 gamepad) Wacom PenPartner Drawing Tablet Canon Flatbed Scanner Epson Stylus Photo R1800 Edirol UA-25 MIDI/Sound Device Palm Connect USB Cable External Seagate 1TB Hard Drive Firewire Periphrials: External Memorex DVD-DL Burner External DVD-RAM Drive (Swiped from a G4) SCSI: 0-Primary Hard Drive (Just under 200GB) 1-External Sony MO 5GB Drive 2-**NOTHING** 3-Internal CDROM Drive (Whatever the 9600 came with) 4-Internal jaz 2GB Drive 5-External (VERY old) 1x Apple CDROM Drive 6-External 250MB Zip Drive 7-Adaptec SCSI Card Serial Periphrials: Color Stylewriter 4500 (Not functional) Newton MessagePad 2100 Apple QuickTake 200 Camera Supera Fax/Modem 288 DOS Card Periphrials: Old Microsoft Serial Mouse on COM1: PC ProgramPad GamePad (Looks like a SNES controller) on the Game port --- END SETUP DETAILS --- All three audio devices (builtin mac audio, audiomedia III, and edirol UA-25) route through my Sony DA777ES, which was an amazing receiver for the time.. Only real problem I have is the aurora fuse video caption card is SLOOOOWW.. The video displays on the Mac at about 10 FPS @ 256 colors, at thousands or millions, it's unplayable, nothing shows up. I THINK this is due to how picky this computer is with PCI card order... I've fiddled a LOT with this, and this combo has everything working top speed, except the video caption card.. Kind of a minor issue, maybe I'll try other permutations of card combos later.. Also, I have a Apple DOS card too, fastest one.. Sadly, I can't boot with USB Extensions on, it's my understanding that they conflict with the DOS Card.. That's why I picked up the OrangePC card. I _think_ that's about everything.. If you have questions or thoughts, feel free to comment! I would love to hear suggestions or other ideas about my setup! Thanks for reading this, and have a good one!
