It has a ALC662 for which I could not find a working driver. The latest on Realtek site recognises the chip but driver does not load...

LAN did not even have 2K driver (2K and 98 both use NDIS 5.0 so there's a slim chance of success)

The VESA driver is only good for very basic things, and even then performance is very low, also no support for resolutions like 1680x1050.

I currently own an Asrock 4coredual-sata2.

For the record, everything works perfectly with Win98 on it (with the exception of the audio chipset - no win9x drivers AFAIK).
It works fine with 2 graphic cards. Right now, Win98 uses a GeForce 6200 AGP and XP/7 a 460 GTX (for those interested, this gives surprisingly good performance in recent games, assuming the screen and thus, the resolution is not too big).

Here's my problem : I tried to replace the 460 GTX with a 760 GTX. Unfortunatly, It freezes on startup (I get no POST display). It seems the 7xx serie is not compatable with the 4coredual-sata2... which means that 6xx serie is probably not either since they are based on the same chip.

I'm thinking about buying a (used) Asrock 4core1333-GLAN or 4core1600-GLAN. They have P31/G31 + ICH7 chipsets and a Realtek RTL8111B/RTL8111C LAN.

Does anyone have an experience with Win98 on this card ?
Will it support my 760 GTX and a 5200 PCI card for Win9x ?

What would be the level of Win-98 functionality / driver availability with this board:


Northbridge: ULi M1695
Southbridge: ULi M1697
Audio: Realtek ALC 660
Lan: Realtek RTL8111B

And this board:


Northbridge: ULi M1695
Southbridge: ULi M1567
Audio: Realtek 850
Lan: Realtek RTL8201CL
