The PCs in my house are networked together and they all use 98SE.
Would an Athlon 64 3000+ play HL2 better than an Athlon XP @ 2.4GHz?
if i'm wrong, someone please correct me...but i don't think your XP drivers would work on 98SE...however it can the other way around.
i know for some ppl it's harder do change over to a new OS when you've been used to a certain version.
but even though the system requirements for HL2 state that it will run on Windows 98....it doesn't say it will very slowly like @ 2fps...or something.
you might want to consider at least just upgrading the "gaming" system to XP...you can just purchase the "Upgrade" version for $99 anywhere. you will see so much improvement w/ media related programs running XP.
you have a decent card there..but the rest of the system's prolly bottlenecking it entirely.
and...i also have an AMD 64 3000+ and it plays great.
can't say if it's better or worse than an Athlon XP @ 2.4gHz though..sorry.
