Looking at the specs: is there a reason why you don't install Win95? With a 233-MMX and Voodoo1, you can play lots of games from up to 1997/8 without problems. But not when using Win3.1. The hardware is a bit wasted for that, especially the 6MB Voodoo1, which not a single 3dfx-ready DOS game can make use of (they are designed for 4 MB). Not that there are that many DOS games with 3dfx support at all, anyway. Same goes for MMX, which neither DOS nor Win3.1 can use. Such a system screams for games like pod, NFS2SE, and the like.
But I already have a Celeron-433 for Windows 95, so replacing Windows 3.11 with 95 on my Pentium-233 build will result in having two Windows 95 rigs and zero Windows 3.1x rigs. Should I just order a Pentium non-MMX 200 MHz CPU and get it over with?
[realizes that the P1 rig is dual-booting with Windows NT which supports programs that benefit from MMX CPUs] Yeah, I'm not so sure, I guess I should've thought twice before posting. 😦
It is also my concern how well can i utilize my Canopus Voodoo 1 6MB with Win 3.1? And NFS II SE is on my list to play. Loosing MMX also not good, i did not think for that. However for Windows 95 I plan to build an another computer with Voodoo2 SLI and Pentium II overdrive 333MHz.
If you insist on running both Windows 3.1x and 95 on one system, what's stopping you from dual-booting? There are some DOS games that support the Voodoo but nothing for Windows 3.x, so it's not a total waste for DOS, I believe the Windows 95 boot loader allows you to dual-boot with a previous version of DOS so if you have MS-DOS 6.22 w/ Windows 3.1x on one partition and 95 on another, you have the option of dual-booting so you'll have an excellent system for covering two generations of Windows games.
