I apologize in advance if this has been discussed elsewhere on the forum, I did a quick search but couldn't quite find what I was looking for.
I'm doing a retro build with the following;
Asus P3V4X (VIA Apollo Pro 133A)
Coppermine P3 733mhz 133mhz fsb
4x256mb of PC133 SDRAM
Currently it's paired with a 32mb TNT2 M64, but I would like to upgrade it to play some later generation windows 98 titles as well.
I was looking at some of my options on the local used markets and it seems I don't have a lot of choice when it comes to 3dfx cards (they must not have been so popular here..?) so I've been looking at some later generation windows 98 cards such as the Radeon 9700-9800 and possibly agp versions of the x800 since that's the latest that was supported by windows 98 from what I've read.
Do any of these have notable issues with 'most' DOS games? I'm willing to sacrifice a bit of compatibility with some really old DOS titles that rely on certain hardware tricks from older generation cards, in favor of better performance in many later titles.
I used the 9800pro myself back in the day but that was already way past the DOS era, so I do not have much recollection of how it fared in DOS titles.
I'm open to other suggestions however!
