The Geforce 2 and 4 both gave out a Weird yellow tinge that wouldn't go away even after Driver install which I am Guessing the Memory has Deteriorated over time and is starting to show unfortunately

She is now Also Dual Booting 98se and XP

and I have also put a CF Card in there on the Secondary IDE which has Dos 6.22 and Win 3.11 Which I just Switch to in the Bios if I want to use it :-) So Technically four OS are on the Beast now :-)

At a guess I'd say late 70s just based on the art style of the box. Can't much else about it online other than a current auction in which its bundled with another similar item expected to sell at about £40 - £60 so for £2 I'd say you got a good deal.

If you crack it open there might be a date stamp on the electronics within or even on the plastic but its not guaranteed.
