I like the game suggestions, keep them up. One more thing: SIS 6326 or S3 (first gen)?

Look through archive.org's DOS CD archives. Games are sort of categorized on CDs and it's nice to browse through.

Monuments of Mars was my first PC game. :D

I think you should not base your graphics accelerator decision on make, but rather on which has glide support and which has/had better drivers.

This is what I would base my decision on. Because many or most games of that time used glide instead of direct garbageTM. Even the old unreal used glide and only got at a very later time full direct garbageTM support (patch 226i I belive).

Here some very neat info on the 6326 dunno if you already knew that:

And here a perfect Database of games I would play on that old hardware:
