Planning an old DOS/Windows machine. 98SE should allow me to play DOS games (MS DOS 7), still have some modern functionality and allow me to play windows 95/98 games.
Looking for as cheap as possible. Not looking for "Upgrade Edition" as i want to do a clean install.

You can also do a clean install from an Upgrade disc but you will need a copy of Windows 3.1 or 95 and to insert it when it prompts you to conform with eligibilty

Turned out to be just regular win98, so still looking for second edition.
