My new toy - Powermac 6100 piltdown man with 8100 HPV card
Arrived some days ago, a Power Macintosh 8100 high performance video card with fully maxed out whopping 4 megs of DRAM video memory. I installed it in the PDS slot of my 6100 Power Mac and everything is running fine. 830x640 px with millions of colours - finally. :D

Now i need to get my hands upon a Newer Tech or Sonnet Crescendo G3 upgrade card and a 21" Multiple Scan display in order to fully exploit the buried capabilities of my old Power Mac. ;)

Now you're getting me all nostalgic. My parents' first computer was a Performa 6116CD and a good friend of mine kept his 6100 into high school, upgrading it to a G3. I ditched all of my old Mac stuff when my parents cleaned out my old bedroom, I had piles of beige G3s in various states of overclocking and G4 upgrades, a 5200, my old 7100, and more.

It was more fun computing a few years ago. I remember going to Akihabara and Machida in Japan to look for 68010 to get a 5-10% boost in speed on my Amiga 1000, or getting a slightly faster crystal oscillator to run my 7MHz CPU at 14MHz.
