I want to build a PC; not like a gaming rig, but instead, a computer from scratch.
There's a great set of videos here), but instead of the MOS 6502, a clone processor to make computing history, a 486-based processor. I automatically assume it would be easier if I used a processor with a DIP 40 socket instead of something with a ton of pins. It both just has less pins, which would be easier, and would be much easier for prototyping. I also need something power-efficient, because I plan to eventually put it into a laptop form factor.
Not related to my processor question, but also, if there is a better site to post this question, please tell me. I barely ever ask questions on Stack Exchange. Anyways, suggestions are greatly appreciated.
