I've given up with my HP dc7600 as an XP retro gaming machine and decided to put another one together from various hardware I mostly have lying around
I have an spare Asus P5B Deluxe motherboard socket 775 and got a P4 3.4GHz CPU from ebay for £5. The mobo has 1Gb ram and a suitable CPU cooler, basically I have all the various other parts (hdd, optical drive, case, PCI Soundblaster etc) to put the rig together but was wondering what would be an appropriate GPU for this build? I want to run XP or possible dual boot fast Win 98.
I already have another rig running XP (Core 2 Duo, Radeon X1850) that I want to upgrade to X1950, So I want to make this P4 an Nvidea build
What would be a good match for the Asus mobo and P4 3.4GHz? Doing a quick google the 9800GT came up as an option but is that the best choice? The mobo supports SLI if that is relevant and 2x cards are not too expensive
I would like something 'interesting/fun' to build, configure and run
