I'm asking because I finally got a Geforce 4 ti4200 (MSI make) and despite my plans from weeks ago, I found out that having both this and a Voodoo 3 in the same comp is not gonna work--even if I could get them to cooperate, I feel like they'd generate too much heat together.
So I'm instead thinking of building two different PCs. One PC will handle DOS and earlier-on Win3.1/95/98 stuff, and this one will get my Soundblaster 16 ISA and my Voodoo 3 PCI, while the other one would get the Geforce and a Soundblaster Audigy ZX.
My main thing is my current PC is 700mhz, but I have an old motherboard in a beige case (that used to overheat all the time which is why I abandoned it, but I might fix that by simply leaving its cover off) that has a 500mhz processor, and since I don't know what this one's mobo is I won't be able to upgrade its processor, whereas the 700mhz comp's Epox-8KTA mobo can handle up to 1.6ghz or so I've read.
Tho, I absolutely refuse to install DirectX 9 on a Win98SE PC (it caused problems last time I did) so I'm wondering if 1.6ghz would be overkill for such a comp or if there's Win98 games that genuinely require such speeds?
Thanks in advance.
EDIT: By the way, the Geforce 4 had three outputs... one was VGA, another was DVI, but then there was one that LOOKED like an S-Video output, but it turned out it wasn't. Or if it was, it had more pin inputs then any of my actual S-Video cables. Does anyone know what that output was?
