Compaq Cyrix 266mhz

My Compaq Cyrix 266 (built from parts in 2012)

  • Cyrix 266mhz (motherboard is Compaq branded GA-5SMM made by Gigabyte)
  • 512mb PC100 SDRAM
  • 20GB HD
  • 1.44MB 3.5″ & 1.2MB 5.25″ Floppies
  • Intel Pro 100/S PCI NIC
  • Windows 95b, Windows NT4 Wks, Windows 98se triple boot (OSL2000 Boot Manager)
  • Modern SFX PSU (after stock one failed, the SFX PSU fits case perfectly).

I built this PC with spare parts, its ironic I chose a scrapped Compaq case because the motherboard turned out to have a Compaq BIOS splash on it, so in all senses it is a Compaq machine, just not assembled by Compaq, lol.
