Finding myself going a little nuts trying to decide how to split my games up over multiple machines which would be "ideal" for each game, I realized that I was over thinking this hobby. After going through the list of games I'm actually wanting to play out of my collection, I've decided that I can consolidate my hardware needs into a single machine and be done with the headache.
The machine in my signature listed as "Halcyon" was a good trip down nostalgia lane, but it's just one machine too many for me right now, and it's been put up on ebay. I'm going to be working off of the other machine in my signature, which should serve me pretty well for what I need.
The range of games on my to do list only go back as far as maybe 94 or so, and no newer than 2000. I'm going to be swapping out the Radeon that's in it now for a FX5900 Ultra which is already on its way from ebay. The FX should be better for the earlier DirectX games and should handle DOS needs just fine.
Has anyone else found themselves in this situation? Am I just going through one of the normal phases of this insanity we all share before relapsing and going after the cool hardware again?
Halcyon: PC Chips M525, P100, 64MB, Millenium 1, Voodoo1, AWE64, DVD, Win95B
