Pentium 3 850Mhz with 2x Noiseblocker NB-BlacksilentFan XS1
Matsonic Hybrid Motherboard Slot 1 / Socket 370 (VIA Apolo Pro)
512Mo SDRAM PC133
Graphic card AGP Nvidia FX 5500 256MB
2x 3DFX2 SLI
Yamaha OPL3 sound Card Audician
PSU Corsair RM750

And I put a "SSD Pci slot Rack" 😀 I can easily switch between some SSD I've prepared.
I used SeaTool to limit the SSD Capacity - From 256GB - to 120GB for Win98 and 32GB for DOS ( Even if I only created a 2GB Partition on it )

I've some games under windows and some other for DOS.
But my main pleasure is more to get my hand in the stuff ( both hardware and software ) and make them work 😀

Nice setup the option to run Slot or 370 CPU's makes it unique.
Personally I'd add a better soundcard for Win98 something like a SBlive or Vortex.

and if its more the hardware side you enjoy setting it up on the network can be fun/challenge and makes transferring files a non issue

I'm trying to use floppy / CDr most of the time, even trying to avoid using an USB Drive.
I used to have a BNC NIC on my historic W98 computer 😉
