    I was looking for something and I found an old email I sent and then received a reply to, back in 1998.

    The part you are seeing here is in "Greeklglish" . Basically an informal way of typing Greek with English characters, mostly phonetically , but not necessarily so.
    From the K-6 down to the Hitachi, it's things I bought to upgrade my then PC.
    From the old system I kept the tower, a HDD, the floppy disk drive, the soundcard.
    Selling the old motherboard, the RAM (32MB), the graphics card (Matrox Mystique), and a 528MB HDD. I am not 100% certain, but it's possible that is the drive I got for my 1994 PC. A Seagate drive.
    I also mention how I decided to keep my Sony monitor.

    Oh yes. Also for years now I couldn't remember what I had as graphics card together with the 3D accelerator card. Also, I assume the Soyo was the motherboard. Back then it felt like I was upgrading every 3 days. I can't possibly remember every hardware I had.

    Same here IIRC the 3Dfx one, I purchased it because it totally overhauled how Quake 2 looked by introducing proper curves
