Currently I have a PIII rig with the following specs.
Asus P3B-F slot 1
Pentium III 500Mhz Katmai [clocked to 333Mhz for DOS games, possibly changing to PII 400Mhz for more slowdown]
NEC DVDrw optical drive
Yamaha YMF-V724 PCI with SB-Link
Nvidia 4200 TI 128MB AGP [to be used with Windows98SE or Windows XP OS)
Voodoo 3 2000 PCI [<--removing this] to replace with the CL-5446 card]
Gotek Floppy reader
2x IDE2SD adapters, 1x as OS SD card and other as secondary slave.
MS-DOS 6.22 with Phil's MS-DOS starter menu
I am going to try the CL-5446 for older DOS games.
1) Do I need to install any specific drivers under MS-DOS 6.22
2) Has anyone tried to upgrade this card to 4MB instead of 2MB as stated here http://old.vgamuseum.info/palcals-collection/ … d5446-hc-a.html ? Also what type of RAM is suitable to fill in the empty sockets, are they really rare / hard to find ?
3) I have never seen any video gameplay with this card, seems a bit underrated and not even here on Vogons could not find many related posts, even though it is highly recommended due to high compatibility with DOS games. The only video I could find is by Phil here https://youtu.be/N_5suEoXTc8
