What if you build an awesome gaming desktop, but put Windows 95 on it?

Enjoy the good LucasArts games... If you can get your hands on them... I guess?

I'm not sure if it'd even work, multi-cpu support was only in the NT branch. And, of course, you wouldn't be able to find win 95 drivers for anything.

Good luck finding drivers.

Came in to say no drivers. Your computer would barely be functional

Does Windows 95 even support PCI-e graphics cards? I honestly don't think you could get it to load.

You can buy a $500 console and a $500 computer and have two crap machines, or you can spend $1000 building your own computer and have the best of both worlds.

Also no more than 512 mb of ram, and no more than 33 gigs of hard drive space.
