(re: Building Old Computers For Sierra Gaming HELP!!!!) Well, to get this thread a little back on track — I have built a computer for old-school Sierra gaming as well. I have a Pentium 200, 50 meg RAM, 1 ATAPI Creative CD-ROM (50x I think), Soundblaster 16, 3 1/2 + 5 1/4 drives, 1 350meg hard drive + 1 100 meg hard drive running Dos 6.22 + Win 3.11 for Workgroups. It runs great — I finally have all the gear/know-how to get my Sierra games running perfectly! And so much fun to build!
I also have a 486SX, 25mhz, 8 meg RAM, 100 meg hard drive, Soundblaster Pro, 2x Proprietary Panasonic/Matsushita CD-ROM w/Interface Card, 3 1/2 + 5 1/4 drives.
Both computers have slow, useless modems! Wish I could get them connected to the net with Winsock and surf in style!
