Now, about the Specs:

-I was thinking about a Pentium 120 or 133, because of GTA for example.
-Hopefully 16MB RAM should be enough
-two HDs, both approx. 1GB
-An SB 16 or Compaq esa1986 or whatever that thing is called (i had it in my first machine, and it sounded pretty good) Maybe I'll add a Roland MIDI card later
I don't know about the graphics yet, so please share everything you know!

This is all I've got so far, please let me know what you think about it!
a computer for old game's eyy

You might be better off looking for a 2GB one then partitioning it appropriately. That is, if your motherboard can handle a HDD of that size.

it should. 133 MHz Pentiums usually come with a 1-3 GB HDD. I even once had one with 4,6 GB, So that shouldn't be a problem. Do you know a good partitioning programm for DOS (Did i mention i wanted to only use DOS instead of some dos-windows combination?)

Windoze 9x bootdisks - fdisk can be used to format in FAT16, AFAIK.
There should also be something like that in the DOS (or freedos) installer.
