Upgrades

Post by Elign »

A long time ago, I upgraded my old 486 from 4 MB RAM to 8 MB RAM just so I could play Duke Nukem 3-D (This was around 1996-1997).

Anyone else upgrade their machine just to play a DOS game?

My first machine was already a P100, so it ran most of the DOS games fine.

Mine was exactly same (and to get more to fit).
NO Windows, NO DOSBox, DOS!

Had to buy a new comp to play games at all. I think it was back in 94. 98 or so another new one. I rarely upgrade.

My whole PC gaming experience was built around upgrading processors, adding ram, sound cards, video cards, and joysticks.
