I have a SBC with P233MMX (but have also a K6III 400 if i need) with Alladin V and a graphic card C&T 69000. That card, is good enough for retrogaming '90 era?

I means: no 3D games or only software render 3D games, if i remember wheel the real heavy 3D that need a 3D accelerator come out in a late PentiumIII/Pentium4 era. Before that age, only the CPU render the scene.

I've looked into these cards and they are interesting for DOS AFAIK. VGA Museum has some Quake benchmarks, it does pretty well if I recall. Separte cards for the consumer market are rare, you do see them offered as pulls from Siemens / NCR / medical machines, hence there is little info concerning games. I think it will perform well speed and compatibility wise.

1998 AGP/PCI laptop chip with some dedicated LCD driving circuity. VBE 2.0 compliant apparently so should be fine for DOS and 2D Windows 95/98 gaming.

And my use/scenario is correct in your opinion?

Yes should be fine I think. How much memory does it have? I think I read it's limited to 2MB... So that might limit you in resolution options.
