Advice needed - Old computer for old gaming
hottyson posted a topic in Windows 9x/MECompaq Presario 4850 Pentium II 300MHz 384 mb RAM Integrated ATI Rage Pro AGP chipset w/4 MB 52x cd-rom 6.5 gb Quantum Bigfoot CY (3600 rpm?) Wired Ethernet to my router I had WinXP on it but it crawled. I am thinking of putting Win98SE or WinME on it and using it for some old multi player games. So I NEED some good advice. Games: Unreal Tournament GOTY Dukenukem3D Heretic/Hexen/HexenII QuakeIII (if it will play with 4mb video) 1, I wont be using any web browsers on it since it is just for multi player FPS games. Does that mean connected to the internet, I am immune from getting infected by a virus or exploits since I don't web-browse with it? 2, which should I use Win98SE or WinME for my particular computer for these games? and why? 3, should I install any of the unofficial service packs since this computer is just for games? Perhaps someone is using a similar system for the exact purpose that I am. What do you recommend? Thank you!
