Running old dos games on windows 7: Gaming Like Its 1999: Building A Legacy Windows Gaming PC

Some video games become harder as the computer gets faster. This can occur in a variety of situations, from AIs that react far too fast to beat, to characters overreacting to input and running at lightning speed. Because hardware at the time was relatively slow and constrained, game designers didn’t set limitations on how fast the game could run, and as a result, as the computer you use gets faster, the game gets harder. To avoid this issue, you need to be sure your CPU is not too powerful for the system you build. If the games you play on this system are mostly from 1998 or later, getting a 1 GHz or faster Athlon or Pentium III processor is the best choice. From there, drop 200 MHz each time you go back one year.
