Hi all, I've switched back and forth between Win95 and Win98, finally simming with WIn95OSR2 w/ all updates. The only benchmark I used was QuakeIII, and 3DMARK2000. 3DMARK2000 doesn't work in Win95 for me, so QuakeIII proved to be the final point for me. I scored 63FPS at high details @1024x768x32bit in win95. In win98, a piddling 51FPS at most. However, I liked the fact that 3DMARK2000 worked, so i stayed with Win98 awhile, until I got this CDVOLTRACK blue screen of death error. I dunno what caused it, but it made me go back to Win95 in a hurry. It happened everytime I booted up.

My sys specs:
AMD 800 @ 2/5 cache 1.8 volts
MSI K7PRO
128MB PC-100
Seagate ATA 66 7200RPM 10.2GB HD
1.44 Floppy(Generic)
CL PC-DVD 20x/2x
GeForce SDR 145/200
TB Montego
Alpha P7125 w/Global Wins
1 5.25 Dual Bay Coolers
1 80mm Case Fan
CompUSA 250 WATT PS

Should I get a new powersupply, and THEN upgrade to Win98?

TIA,
Paul
