Re: The Quest for Pixel Perfect DOS Emulation

in PC Emulation
Thanks for the reply... I'm still having difficulty getting Windows to "pick" the 60Hz version of 640x480. I've tried using nVidia Control Panel (on the right of the screenshot) and also CRU (left).

Re: The Quest for Pixel Perfect DOS Emulation

Can you get more refresh rates if you instead run DisplayPort straight …

Re: My first attempt at retro PC

Interesting... Maybe there was a later BIOS update (which you already have) which enabled higher CPU speeds. I have a similar motherboard on the same 440BX chipset running at Pentium III 700 MHz Coppermine. If your BIOS allows multiplier of 8x I'd say there's a good chance a Coppermine would work - …
