So i decided to take-a second look at my retro build plans and now i seem to be stuck between sticking with a 486DX-33 / DX2 or moving to a Pentium (around 100mhz at most. Don't want to go too crazy.)
Stuck because i love the extra retro-factor of the 486 and compatibility with more speed sensitive or older games and peripherals. But I like the Pentium since it feels more like a "one-and-done" solution that would just run most things i'd throw at it acceptably.
I suppose i should base it on games, but i figured i might as well get some second opinions before i drop cash.
Here are some games I'm interested in running:
Silpheed, Thexder, Sim Games, FMV(7th Guest, etc), A-Train , Transport Tycoon, Theme Hospital, Epic Pinball, Duke Nukem 1-2, Alien Carnage, Hugo's House Of Horrors \ text or graphical adventures, Wolf3D\Doom\Rott, Windows 3.1, Inertia Player..
Don't plan on running anything like Quake, nor Windows 95 / 98. Duke Nukem 3D at playable full screen frame rates would be quite nice, but isn't necessary? I get conflicted with this one 🤣
Thought's I'd just gather some outside thoughts!
