    Eww. Just eww.

    Thanks for the comments guys. Perhaps a mod could move this thread over to the Retro gaming sub forum? Seems more appropriate over there now. Don't think it existed when I started this.

    Was contemplating buying some appropriate graphics cards today (GeForce 2 MX, 3D Prophet 4000XT, Matrox G450, Savage 4 Pro S540) to benchmark on it but came to the conclusion I have the best card already (Voodoo 3) and my CPU isn't really powerful enough for anything better. Ordered just the 4000XT (needs a new heatsink/fan so was quite cheap) as that was the first video card I ever bought and will be good to see what improvements it offers over the Voodoo.

    Have ordered some more blank CD-Rs and an SD to IDE adapter though, as nice as the hard drive noises are.
