I already have a Pentium III Windows 98 PC for all my high-performance DOS gaming and stuff. I'm planning on getting a 286 and a 386 PC separately at some time, all with their own period-correct OSes and software and stuff.
And in between I want to make a 486 PC with DOS 6.22 and Windows 3.11, MAYBE Windows 95 if it works out.
I have a standard AT tower case and just shopping around for a motherboard, and there seem to be some very expensive, presumably highly sought after boards, and a bunch of cheap, presumably inferior boards too.
So if I were seeking to build something aimed primarily at running Doom, 6.22 and 3.11, and leaving more demanding stuff to my Win98 machine, would it really matter if I just got something like this as opposed to hunting down some hyper-specific optimal SIS or Opti chipset?
