I'm going to start a build log for a main 486 rig. The planned specs are:
CPU: Intel 486 DX2 66 (SX955) with Write Back cache.
Motherboard: QDI V4P895P3/SMT V5.0 (OPTi 895) 3/6/1 VLB/ISA16/ISA8
Cache: 256kB 15ns
RAM: 2x 8MB 72-Pin SIMMs
VGA: Number Nine #9GXE64 Pro VLB 4MB (S3 Vision 964)
Sound Card 1: Sound Blaster 16 CT1750 (v4.05 DSP) *I'm going back and forth between this or another SB16/AWE32 variant.
Sound Card 2: Gravis Ultrasound Classic
Sound Card 3: Either MPU-401AT or Keropi's Clone
I/O: Longshine LCS-6941 VLB
Components not listed are TBD. I'm likely going to use a 1GB HDD or CF.
My biggest problem right now is the case. As is typical, finding a period correct case is either challenging or expensive. I found one close by that I''m going to try to get. Maybe I'll get lucky.
