Nostalgic PC Hardware Section

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

With Retro PC's and hardware collection on a major uprising. It would be a really great addtion to the LTT forums to have a dedicated section for all thing Retro hardware related. 
 

TechPowerUp for example has several dedicated thread where users submit retro hardware photos, builds & their personal retro collections. 

I know I personally having my own large collection would love a place to share high res photos of hardware, that isn't just in the general Graphics Cards or motherboard sections.

it would be awesome to see something like this:

- Nostalgic Hardware General
- Members Retro Collections
- Retro PC Build Logs

Well, the threads nice. but its a single thread. So my original idea still stands. Some seperation would be nice to make it easier to browse things like builds, photos & collections etc.
