i don't think these have that.

dell sx260 sff
dell gx280 sff
dell optiplex 755 sff - i know that doesn't.

those are the oldest i have stashed...

i never know what i will pickup down the road, but normally i straight recycle anything pre core2duo.

will keep my eyes open.

1990-1998 is a wide range, can you be most specific? what exactly are you looking for? ISA slots? PCI Slots? 386? 486? Pentium 166-233,

1990 the "mainstream" was 386 class systems
1991 the "fastest" pc available was a 486dx50
1998 the Pentium II was just released ( starting at 233mhz )
