thinking of the "ultimate" retro x86 PCs - what bits to seek/keep ?

The ultimate gaming 486 would have an EISA+VLB motherboard. EISA for SCSI 
caching controllers and 10/100 Ethernet cards, VLB for high end video cards, 
plus room for an ISA sound card.

The ultimate work 486 would probably be an IBM PS/2 Model 90 or 95 with 
exotic MCA cards. Or the same EISA + VLB as above with different cards.

To be honest I have a few different ultimate 486 setups so there isn't one 
ultimate to be had.
