    Have been given a number of old games ie

    grim fandango
    alone in the dark 2 and 3
    LBA 1 and 2
    time commando
    full throttle
    and a number of lucas arts classics

    I have looked at dosbox and after i download it I get lost trying to figure it out. So I thought I would buy a PC from ebay to play them.
    Unfortunately most dont seem to know if the above games will play on the systems they have for sale ????.

    One fellow said he would make one for me for $100.00 if I gave him the specs. So can somebody give the the best specs to play the above games

    I think to start off win 95 or win 98 / pentium 4 / 32 MB video card and about 2 GB ram I dont know what else I need. Can anybody help out.

    If I were you, I would build a basic home system with Windows Pro. You have the advantage of playing older games and a more advanced system. Though it may cost more, you may find Windows 95, 98 even ME, to be way too ancient. Unless you have grown up with those operating systems all of your life I'd understand.
