galahs Posted February 7, 2007 Share Posted February 7, 2007 I have been asked by a Manufacturing firm to come up with a new computer spec to replace their old machines.They need to machines to run Windows 98 SE and Win2000 (dual boot). They want a fast machine (both Graphics and Processor) for CAD work which runs on both Win9x. They stressed they want it to have the least amount of compatibility problems as they have tried running Win98 on new machines and have had lots of problems.I was thinking along the lines of:CPU: Pentium 4 650 - 3.40GHz (HyperThreading will have to be turned off in the BIOS settings)MOTHERBOARD: ASUS P5PE-WM (865G Chipset, AGP 8)http://www.asus.com/products.aspx?l1=3&...amp;modelmenu=1HARD DISKS: 2 x 120GB ATA130 Drives (I know there is a solution to the 137GB problem but I don't wont to risk it in a business environment)GRAPHICS CARD: nVIDIA 6800 (Quadro doesn't support Win9x) or a ATI Raedon 9800SOUND CARD: SoundBlaster Audigy 2Z or maybe just a SoundBlaster Live (then again the onboard sound is probably up to the task)add a DL DVD Burner and a Floppy Disk drive and they should be set.Thoughts?
