In 1999 I went back to school to get into IT. At that time I had been putzing around with a 486-DX 50 that I had gotten for free from my brother in 97. My father offered to buy me a machine as a gift for me going back to school. I had no clue what I was looking for. So I bought a computer, monitor and speakers from a mail order catalog. It had a Slot 1 PIII 450 64MB RAM and a board with a SIS 620 chipset with integrated graphics. No 2D or 3D support. I learned a lot from that failure. Ended up having to get a Nvidia Riva PCI card for 2D and a Voodoo 2 for 3D.
The next year I ended up upgading to a Intel BX2 board and a TNT2. Traded that SIS board for a DX4-100 with a motherboard and gave it to a friend.
