I want to buy a graphics card for real dos and ocassionally windows 98. I know its too new for DOS but I want a card which would get high resolutions if it would land in another computer later. But lets get to the problem!
First I thought that radeon 9800 pro would be great because of its perfect low resolution upscaler. The image on radeon is very very sharp but some people say that its not compaitble with most dos games so now i question myself is it worth buying it. Are there any real examples where 9800 pro has compatibility issues with dos? Up to this day I played many dos games on my radeon 9200 in it works perfect, didnt catch any incompatibilities so why 9800 gets such opinions?
From the second side i thought I might buy a Geforce ti4200 but the upscaler here is really bad. The image is smoothed out and pixels are not as sharp as on radeon. But some say it works on everything, has vesa 3.0 support (which i dont know where I might use it for, and dont know what it really is 😜 ).
If I should choose ti4200 then which version? agp 4x 64mb or agp 8x 128mb?
Please help and write as many considerations I should take into account choosing between these three 😀
