I'm thinking 32mb ram or more but seriously the prices guys have you seen them on ebay? I'm not after the best I just need something to run on signed drivers for direct x with windows 98se that can run dos games and play some 1990's games what if it was just a motherboard with integrated graphics i got a pentium 4 motherboard its got vga FOXCONN 651M03-6L a socket 478 intel cpu thing its got 2.2ghz pentium 4 and 2gb RAM i actually have better ram coming and a chipset cooler as well. SiS? last time i heard about them was back in 2005 when i owned a sis 6326 4mb pci card the chip was designed for agp 🤣. I don't know what the sis built in this board has signed booty or not. SiS Mirage walks towards it .... seems shady .... not shaders i wish i had millions to buy the best of the best i really do
If you shop around you can get some nice bargains on old PC hardware, also check on facebook groups that's how i got my Voodoo 1 and Voodoo 3 cards for decent prices.
There's loads of Geforce 2/4/MX cards on ebay and loads of Radeon 9200s or TNT2 cards if you want to go older although of course it depends on your location.
An ATI Rage 128/pro can be had for pretty cheap.
You'll find that a lot of integrated graphics chips are not very good with DOS support and pretty terrible in general for windows titles (not always the case of course) They'll mostly be S3 or SIS, on later boards you'll find some nvidia / ATI integrated graphics which will fare better in general.
