I have been wondering past few days if the system I'm building would be better served with having 98 or XP as the OS.
I still have a bunch of parts to get but I've nailed down the main 4:
Pentium iii 1ghz Coppermine
DFI CS61-EC Motherboard
512 PC133 SDRAM (Max the above supports)
Nvidia Geforce 4 Ti4200
Sound Blaster Live SB0220
I do have a few older pre 1995 DOS games I want to play but considering I can use Dosbox for those (right?) I'm wondering if XP would be a better fit than 98 considering the majority of my library playing games up to Freelancer, KOTOR and possibly World of Warcraft Vanilla. Will be running a good amount of console emulation too.
Will the higher requirements of XP have a negative impact or will it not really matter?
