Like most things in life there's probably no easy answer for this, but what hardware is required to run games in vesa mode at a decent frame rate?
I ask because I've recently been messing around with early pentiums (started with a 200MMX, now using a P2 300 MMX) to play DOS games and am not getting decent frames in vesa mode, but - based on the time periods involved - I think I should be.
And by vesa mode I mean SVGA resolutions above the standard DOS res for games - I'm not even sure if these things are related?
By decent frame rate I mean 60 fps.
Some examples of the games I'm talking about are:
The relevant specs of the PC I'm using are:
Matrox Mystique 220
I'm interested to understand what sort of CPU / Video card (OS ?) I'd need to run these types of games maxed out.
Thanks for any tips!
