Post Windows 98

Can a 3.GHz Intel Pentium 4 work with Windows 98?
Can 1024MB RAM work with Windows 98?
Can a ATI Radeon 9800pro work with Windows 98?
Can a 160GB HDD work with Windows 98?

Thanks.

Windows 98 does have certain limitations but most can be overcome. Now with all that highspeed hardware, why are you still running Win 98? With that said, I still run it on one of my computers but my other two have Win2000 and Win XP. The only reason I haven't changed the Win98 computer is there is just too many programs, hardware that I would have to find the right versions/drivers for and not enough hours in the day/night.

BTW you can find a full copy of WIn XP home OEM at some online sites, for cheap. When you buy the bundled package... In the site listed below is a cheap mouse and fan with XP OS.

It's all legal. check out http://www.ncix.com/products/index.p...n=XPH-SUN-LOGI

Keep in mind, this is Canadian dollars, which if you are from the U.S. Would be cheaper for you.

Keeps the price of XP down, while satisfying the OEM requirements.

The hardware will have NO problem running 98, however I agree that you'd be FAR better off to go XP or 2K if at all possible... but, yeah. It'll work.
