So, in trying to build a great Windows 98 machine, I've come into a few issues. Namely with ATI videocard compatibility in Windows 98.
If DOS is not part of the formula, and neither is A3D, is there any game or games that absolutely require Windows 98 to run?
I'll be using a P4 3GHz+HT Prescott ASUS P4P800 rig with an ATI x1600 AGP and hopefully Windows XP SP3.
The original Quadro 980XGL nor the ATI 9800Pro just didn't cut it in XP games like Half-Life 2 or Far Cry, but i also want to preserve the ability to play older Windows 98 games without too many hassles.
