I did a swing by the microcenter near Philadelphia after my classes on Tuesday and picked up the parts to get my GX version up and running to my satisfaction. Another card with a lot more muscle than Radeon but it’s not passively cooled so I’m not super hot about using it. Nice machine, also a huge lover of this case and form factor, always good to run into tx115 optiplex fans!

If you will upgrade the system, why not go all in?
Because of the nostalgia attached, that rounded-front leaning-forward case design is my absolute favorite and I have amassed something of a hoard of them went a bit wild purchasing at my favorite electronics surplus store. And then there is the odd-one-out black GX on my desk with a 1. My problem was that every time it came to installing the onboard graphics driver in 98 after install it locked the whole thing up.
Me and my friend used to get these when our school district switched over to XP, because they were pretty much slow yx115 hell at that point. Board index All times are UTC. And to my happy joy the ME disk had the proper drivers for gx11 and g1x15 Nvidia card!
