you can get a program to slow down modern pc's just for this reason. you can still play those old dos games... not only that there are repositories of them all over the place - "abandon ware"?

if it runs too fast, you just need to find an app to hamstring your cpu... limits the program to .1% utilization or something etc etc.. it works for as far back as c64 games, so it will work for old dos programs too...
