I finally have an ASUS P5A motherboard that works so I am going to do a build with it.
This is the same model board I had back in the day when I was running a K6-2 550 at 660Mhz (120x5.5).
I'll post pics when I get the rest of the parts settled and have it put together.
Recommendations for video and sound are welcome.
This will be a DOS / Win98SE build.
Specs so far:
Case - In-Win S500:

PSU - Seasonic SS-500ET (Will probably stick a lower wattage in here but they are all in other cases right now)
MB - ASUS P5A v1.04
CPU - AMD K6-2+ 570 - Might change to a K6-3+ 450
CPU Cooler - Antec branded thin fin heatsink with inlaid copper base. Was meant for S370/4672, but works perfectly fine for Socket 7 though I did have to trim the PSU ATX plug for clearance.
RAM - 256MB PC-133
Video - Voodoo 3 3000D (Dell OEM version of the V3-3000.. I think)
Sound - Not sure about this yet. My original build would have had an Opti 930 based card with onboard wavetable. One of the few pieces I kept from back then. Pretty sure I used that card starting with a 386 system... or maybe it started in a 486 system. Picked it up used at a local electronics store - Elliot Electronics in Tucson, AZ.
