No idea. Your Idea sounds great, although I'd take a DX2.
Back then my gaming machine was a DX-50 (a real 50, no
DX2-50 :), and it worked great for all games. A DX2-66
is the closest you can get. Of course there's always an
AMD 5x86-160 ... Eventualy the fastest 486 of all times.
I had one overclocked to 200 MHz in a 50 MHz Board.

In fact, when thinking about building a low speed Game
machine for early 90s games, I would go for a 60-200 MHz
Pentium, or at least a PCI bus 486.
