I only realized now that my Graphic card is missing the bracket, and I don't know why!
Anyway I took other photos and a comparison between the two cards. Let's say that in fact, nothing really fits ....

Update: The white slot should be PCI slot, not the corrrect slot. You need a AGP slot.

An usual AGP slot looks like this in the image.
There is a part you have to slide in diagonally. (Far right of AGP slot)

@NarakuITA, you're confusing me now lol.



The top one is AGP, the bottom PCI 5 volt. Both are ATX.

The lower Video card is the one currently used. The top one is the one I would like to put on, but apparently I can't do it.
Because the MATROX G450 Dual VGA is more powerful than the matrox mystique pci.

These are the only Slots where I can insert the various cards to connect to the PC.

I remembered that I had other PC components in the attic, which were given to me many years ago, but never used.
I found this 3Dfx Video Card. Is this card better than the one I currently have (matrox mystique pci)?
https://ibb.co/tq4c3cY
https://ibb.co/5r778Dr
Then I found this Sound Blaster:
https://ibb.co/6yvgZrX
https://ibb.co/d5zxjpD
Currently I have mounted this:
https://ibb.co/kSPVzsp
https://ibb.co/2Ph3GGp
Between the two is the first better or the one I have now installed?

The bottom slot is a ISA slot, forget about it for video.

The 3dfx is a Voodoo 1 from 1996 which can have 4, 6 or 8MB VRAM.


It depends what Matrox Mystique you have. The original mystique comes with 2-8MB VRAM. It is also from 1996. The Mystique 220 is a 1997 release.

The Voodoo 1 is the slowest, then the Mystique and the Mystique 220 is the fastest; but if they don't have 8MB VRAM, then they're rather sub-par. Frankly they were all mediocre.

If memory serves, the fastest PCI VGA ever made was the from 2004 (NOT the PCIe version and NOT any AGP version for your system). There are plenty of 256MB versions on eBay. It even has a Windows 95 driver although there won't be DirectX 9 support on Windows 95
The other two cards are DirectX 3/5 cards.


As for the sound card. The CT4170 is a 1997 Sound Blaster 16 WavEffects. The last generation ISA release and a budget model. This has line in, speakers and mic + midi/joystick.

The CT3670 is a 1995 Sound Blaster 32, also a budget model but yours has the SIMM slot so it is comparable to an AWE64. This has line in and out, speakers and mic + midi/joystick.

I *think* the CT4170 supports 44KHz sampling, so might be the better card. I have no idea what driver support is like for either, but I might imagine the 1997 card has a better chance of supporting Windows 2000 and XP than a 1995 card.

So I leave Mystique, on the label I see written MY220P / 4 | I assume it's a Mystique 220.
For the sound card I will use the CT4170. If I'm not wrong on archive.org I found the installation CD for win3.1 and win95. Now I try to install the drivers.
The 3Dfx card, for curiosity, I connected it, but it does not detect it. It made 3 short beeps.
The nvidia geforce 6200 is interesting. One day I might get it!

I installed Sound Blaster 16, to test it on Windows 95, however in the Device Manager, the yellow exclamation mark appears on Creative Sound Blaster 16 plug end play! in fact there is no audio!
It says: The device is not present, it is not working correctly or not all the necessary drivers are installed. Consult the hardware documentation (code 24).

MY220P / 4 implies that it is a 22 4MB version, sadly. Compared to a 256/512MB Geforce, it has no chance.


Is the yellow exclamation mark before or after you installed drivers?

Try it in the other ISA slot too - but don't put both in at the same time!

The exclamation point is after successful installation of the drivers.

That's the driver for a SB 16 value, which will be a SB 16 PCI card. You need original SB 16 drivers.

If those don't go well, I think it will be impossible to find the original drivers!

Anyway, out of curiosity, I wanted to start the installation of Windows 2000, unfortunately after loading the griver of the various pericerics, when the installation menu has to be started, to decide what to do, here is the blue screen! I guess it's not possible to install it.

Ok, it was the fourth windows 2000 boot floppy disk that had corrupted files. I recreated it and the installation started without problems! but for now, I'm not installing it, I'm waiting for the other components ordered on ebay. As soon as it arrives it all starts!
What do you think, with windows 2000 will it already recognize the sound card?
