AMD K6-2 333Mhz with 128MB good for testing Whistler Builds? It have a 3dFX VooDoo Banshee 16MB card and an Avance Logic ALS120 ISA SOund card.

The only way to know is to try. It's impossible for anyone here to know if your system has any compatibility issues since there are countless different hardware configurations.

I've always had bad moments with ATI cards on Whistler, as the drivers for them never worked.

If you're planning to run Beta 2 (2428-ish period), stick with NVIDIA or Matrox. These pretty much work out of the box and don't BSOD like ATI cards do.


Update: I purchased awhile back a ATi Radeon 9000 64MB that I found locally for $10, I thought I would give it a try with the Whistler builds, upon getting finished with installation and booting to desktop, the drivers were not there out of the box probably considering the card was slightly newer after whistlers time, I found some compatible drivers however, they are finicky at best, one build which I can't remember right off hand after installing the driver, BSOD. I am thinking of checking out a nvidia card or Matrox and see how that goes.

Should I keep the ATI Radeon one for later builds for whistler or maybe perhaps longhorn builds? Hoping the longhorn builds go smooth sailing without a hitch and at least get Aero working right off hand.

Also for everyone, since I am messing with the desktops, im going to try to look at perhaps maybe getting a laptop, I have been finding some old ones local here that owners are wanting to part with. What brands would you all recommend and models? Im going to look and see what I can get, going to possibly do the same thing as with the desktops. Going preferably for Longhorn and below OS wise, Whistler, even, 2000,ME,98 builds. I want to add at least one laptop to the old desktop PC's I have. :)

The Radeon 9000 is pretty decent, should keep it for XP. As for the GPU for Whistler, again try a RIVA TNT2 or Geforce2.
