I’m thinking about building (or resurrecting) and old PC for a bit of retro gaming.
I’d like to run DOS/Windows games from around the late 80’s up to around the mid/late 90’s.
The PC I’m going to build this around is an old Mesh PC which I heavily upgraded between 1999-2005. I can probably revert it back to original specs if it helps.
- Intel PII MMX 350MHz
- 768MB RAM (can reduce if required 128MB originally)
- Matrox G400 MAX 32MB (originally Intel 740i 8MB)
- Hard Drive – Not sure, but I have a load which should work, around 40-250+ GB – maybe even the original 8GB one.
- Sound Blaster 64 / Audigy Player (can’t remember which)
I don’t have an original CRT monitor anymore, but hoping my 19” Widescreen will suffice?
Just looking for some advice on the best hardware and software config to run old Games etc and which platform is best. I was thinking probably DOS 6.22 (separate partition) and Windows 98 SE (DOS 7.1).
