Atari in PC-CASE project !

Postby MisterT » Mon May 18, 2009 12:21 pm

Hi Atarians,

Just wanted to share some pictures of my pc-case project.

I used a 1040STfm mobo with TOS 1.2 UK
MSX RGB Board (ripped from a msx 2),
with RF / cinch Audio, Luminance / CVBS and SCART connector (all working)
2 HD pc floppy drives used a 7407 TTL IC to pull up select signals. (working as 720 dd Drive)

Have a COLOR/MONO switch built in, when working in color switch will reset
and switch to mono and vice versa.

Oh well just look at the pictures...

Yes i think thats no problem....

Most work is to get the connectors to the outside
so if its similar then a 1040 mobo it will fit

Hey Sam - its Ron, from just a ways (Kentucky) over from ya.... :)

Did you ever put your CTxx'ed Falcon in the Wizztronics Rack case
like I did or did you decide to go another route?

Just curious - and nice to see ya around. :)

A Falc should fit, as it is about the size of the 1040.
Does it still have room at around the PC PCI slot openings?
If there's still space, it would be great to fit in the CTPCI as well.

A very neat conversion, most tower conversions tends to be quite messy. I just hope that you pulled that RGB-card from a dead MSX2 though, a real shame if you butchered a working MSX2 for this ;-)

Well to be honest it was a WORKING msx-2
But i had thatone and some others for spare parts..
It had a really ugly damaged case so not really a shame to use it :-)

But the RGB board can easily be made with VIRO board
its same principal the atari uses based on the MC1377 RGB encoder chip.

I wanted the standard SCART bus and all the audio/video cinch connectors
and philips already did that for me in the video part of the msx....
luckily it was a single board and not integrated in the main comp board

Thats basicaly why i used it :-)

You should have recased the MSX2 instead :D I would LOVE to get my hands on a MSX2, but these are hard to find. I would love even more to find a working SVI738, so if you have one for sale (or know someone) you know who to PM!
