Same here, MII-300 with 28mb RAM (4mb shared VGA), dropped a S3 2d card a Voodoo1 4mb card in, just to get my 32mb RAM back

And it struggled with HL1

Maybe even more because the small amount of ram and the fact that the GPU can't render 3d. So it has to be render in 2d which takes a very long time to do render still
0fps EVER would be the answer. The operating system (MS-DOS probably?) wouldn't know how to handle the installer. Besides the fact the hard drive wouldn't be big enough and the graphics card/chip wouldn't support DX9

My first PC was bought for me in Xmas 1999 for £999.99 from PC World and had a 566MHz Celeron CPU, 64MB RAM and 8MB hard drive and 8MB onboard ATI Rage graphics. It was actually very, very quick and although it had two motherboard replacements between 1999 and 2002, it was pretty good to me.

By the time I played Half Life 1 on it, I'd bought a 16MB Voodoo 3 for around £90 and it played it very well indeed.

I've since revived the computer and I use it for test builds of old operating systems. Windows 3.1 and everything before that loads instantly on the 64MB of RAM.
