I'm now using a Matrox Mystique card. You can find lots of information about this card and the Millanium at this site. New drivers and new BIOS files can also be found here. If you use one of their products, visit this site once in a while as they release new BIOS files and drivers fairly often.
The Mystique is not the best card available but it's the only card from Matrox which supports 3D in its hardware. I'm very happy with mine.
This site is for people who are planning to upgrade to the 6x86 and the existing users of the Cyrix 6x86. You will also find some programs which are used to manage and optimise the chip. Worth visiting for both beginners and experts.
You may have heard about the performance problem with the NT4.0 when used with certain revisions of the 6x86. If your 6x86 belongs to one of the revisions and still want to use NT4.0, a software solution for the problem is available for download at this site.
The next thing that you should read on this site is about the FPU of the Cyrix. You'll find some explanation on the Cyrix FPU and why it is not as capable as the one on the Pentium.
This is where you can find the Intel bus mastering driver for your Triton board. The latest version available at this site is 2.64. OS/2 and NT drivers are also available on this page. This site hasn't been updated for quite sometime. If it's updated, please, tell me.
I've been using motherboards from GigaByte in the last three and a half years. Their products just keep getting better. Currently, I'm on the GA-586HX which is an excellent motherboard, very fast and very easy to configure. There are only four switches you have to deal with when setting this board up for your processor. If the main GigaByte site doesn't work then you can try the following sites.

Same reason as the previous item. I have a Gravis UltraSound Max and a Gravis UltraSound PnP Pro cards. If you have a Gravis soundcard and want some software for you card, this is
one of the places.
If you don't mind using BETA software, the latest driver for the PnP card can be obtained there. The latest one is the BETA 3 of their new driver. I haven't found any problems with this one yet but admittedly, I'm not an expert on soundcards.
In my opinion, Gravis cards are quality soundcards and have excellent sound reproduction but leave a lot to be desired on their compatibility with games, the demand on the resources and the knowledge required for setting up the card properly under DOS and Win3.1. I have both the Ultrasound Max and PnP Pro. Their PnP cards are much easier to set up but you still need some knowledge on the IRQ and DMA usage on your system to make it work properly with other peripherals. In the new version, the demand on resources is reduced and you should be able to disable the port for CD-ROM properly. If you don't use the IDE port on the card I would recommend disabling it. Currently, it is only possible by using the new version of the card's BIOS.
This site has got quite a bit of information about different types of cache memory. They also have a program which can identify whether you have the L2 cache on your motherboard or not. This is a very useful program if you suspect that you have fake cache on your motherboard. I also have another similar program called cache check. You can download it from here.
Tom's page is an excellent place for information on hardware. This is one of the sites which I visit almost everyday. It's updated regularly and packed with new information. I have never seen anything like this elsewhere on the Internet.
The statement above remains true. I also have to admit that some of the links present on this page are taken from Tom's page. I hope he doesn't mind me doing this.
This is the official site of S3 Inc. You'll be able to find drivers for your S3 SVGA card(s) by following the links from this S3 site. The drivers are written by the S3 Inc and used by many cards. If you use a Diamond card, you should use the driver supplied with the card. Don't use the driver written by S3 Inc. Here is the Direct Link to their download area.
