This is a new project. Still in Quest of a great DOS computer.
I want to build a DOS gamer dream machine from around 1995
I am not looking to build a period correct computer but instead a versatile DOS gaming computer to
play old and modern DOS games in good quality.
I want to base it on the Pentium 75 or 133.
I think this maybe around the time that the Intel CPU reached it's most versatile point.
It could play old DOS games and Modern DOS games.
You can run this Pentium CPU at normal speeds or at 386 speeds.
Allowing you to play a large assortment of DOS games.
This CPU could also run Win95 and WinNT-4.0
Which was the turning point when the Pentium CPU began to dominate all of the computer market back in 1990's.
Here are the parts I have so far.
