I'm interested in Win 3.11. Please PM me. Will it work on a Turbo XT, 2 mb ram? Would love to upgrade.

Windows 3.11 will not run on an XT in enhanced mode. It should run in standard mode, but I am more interested in knowing how you got 2MB in an 8088? :D :D :D

*th-up* Busted. Don't really recall how much ram those suckas could take.

I really did have an XT once upon a life. Ah, the memories of playing a game with ten 5.25" floppies.

On a side note, can anyone hook me up with a P4 system cheeeeep? Currently have an AMD Athlon 1200. Being the loser I am, I bought a copy of Doom 3 and didn't check the sys requirements. Apparently you need the good stuff to run this game. Really wanna play, but don't wanna pay (too much), so lemme know. Ideally, I could reuse some of my DDR ram on a new motherboard and use a no-name 128 mb video card I bought from Future Shop last x-mas.

Apologies in advance for thread crapping in this crappy thread.

You callin' my thread crappy? *uzi*

:D I'm joking with ya...

XT's could have up to 1.0MB max, but was VERY VERY rare.

Check www.logiccomputerhouse.com for great pricing on computer components, and even systems too.

you mean 8086. :)
forget floppies... when I started computing we used to store everything on cassette tapes.

"PRESS RECORD ON TAPE TO SAVE..."
"PRESS PLAY TO LOAD..."

anyway... how much do you want to spend on your new system, I can hook up most parts cheap.

Dunno. Really hoping I could do something with $200 (mobo, CPU and fan), but not sure if that's even reasonable. Not a hard-core gamer, but love the 3D shoot em ups. So it's hard to justify spending too much money just for one game... plus the wife will break out the baseball bat.

Does this (http://torontostreetracing.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=16673) sound like a good deal?
