How much better will upgrading to an I9 fix things? https://www.amazon.com/Intel-i9-9900K-Desktop … ps%2C147&sr=1-3 This is my chipset series:
I have an I7 and can run Win 98 just fine up to Pentium II 233 but when I use my live host CD things stutter (on certain programs) and I need the CD for some games that ISO's won't play which say 'Please Insert Disc' even if the ISO is loaded. So I'm looking to upgrade my I7 rig to I9. Any suggestions? Also: Dad is usually our fix it guy but he hasn't done anything like this in eons and not used to gaming stuff but looks at things with me so we did our own research and many say I9 is not any better for triple AAA games but what we are doing is NOT triple AAA games. This is PCEM were' talking about and no references.
Everyone says PCEM cannot do Win 98 but they are DEAD wrong and I do it all the time I prefer it over 95's suckyness: I have a VHD to prove it but the problem remains I cannot use my HOST CD very well and I don't know if it's down to emulation vs my host CPU. T
Oh and to some extent I can even do Windows 2000 for a few things that don't work on 98 due to being too old such as Sim City 3000 Unlimited which now I can do proper mouse speed! IE: The map doesn't jump all over the place! If you try Sim City 3000 Unlimited on 98 it says something about expecting a newer windows version error so I use Win 2000 so again how much will upgrading to this help me?
