    So a virtual PC isn't working, I need to build an old rig that Windows 98 will run on pefectly. Can anyone give me ideas on what graphics card I'll need to make a decent rig? I can do the Mainboard, CPU and RAM no problem, I'll just find a decent P3 board and CPU and I've got some old SD RAM laying around somewhere.

    Update. My uncle is giving me an old P2 rig which should run 98 just fine. However, I have two quesitons about it:

    1: Would SDRAM run or would I need to get older Memory?

    2: Would a GeForce 3 run?

    It will certainly be SDRAM (be careful though, DDR is also called SDRAM so specifically look for the stuff with 2 notches instead of 1)
