    I'm going through dad's old computer parts and want to rebuild a 90's gaming machine. There's a lot of crap in store, so I tried to do as much research as I could on the parts, but I'm still not entirely sure. So I'm going to list the specs, and I need some opinions! If you're familiar with late 90s gaming, hopefully you can judge whether or not this would have been considered high end at the time. Alright...

    CPU: Intel Pentium 3 450 (450 MHz)
    Memory: 128 MB
    Hard Drive: 20 GB
    Video card: ATI Rage 128 Magnum (32 MB VRAM)
    Monitor: 1024x768 LCD
    Sound card: Sound Blaster Live! Value 5.1
    OS: Windows 98 SE
    Motherboard: Some generic Intel board.
    Case: Some old beige case.

    There it is! I'm looking to play old games like Quake 3, Unreal Tournament, etc. Should I expect to get decent framerates on the highest settings with these specs?

    You will be able to run those games fine. You are above the minimum requirements. I can not exactly tell you what framerates to expect, but they will be at a very playable rate.
