I had a Pentium 4 rig right up to the end of 2012.. And I still play Diablo II..

 

Ah yes, I have a Pentium 1 with MMX CPU somewhere. Don't wanna find it though.. Does my Sharp PC count?

I have an ASUS Radeon HD 2600 PRO laying around with 512MB of vram... with AGP. I bought it to squeeze some extra gaming life out of an old P4 pc, and it actually worked pretty well.

 

But the drivers man, the drivers. Most of the standard Catalyst installers didn't even recognize the card, was stuck on some hotfixed version specially made for AGP cards of that that type.

This thread gave me a great excuse to tear into my old windows 98 machine and take some photos of the tech inside. First up is some Micron SDRAM 128Mb memory running at a whopping 100MHz! I also took out the cpu which is a 370 socket Intel Celeron 500. Here are some links to the two photos on my Flickr if anybody wants to see them in high res.

Just because you're 12, doesn't mean you can't have old computer parts. I have some Core 2 Duo, and a Nvidia 8800 GTS or something like that.

I'm 15, have a VooDoo3, Soundblaster 16, a Slot 1 Pentium 3, and a laptop that's as old as me. Not to mention my old Sharp PC 4-numbers-I-can't-remember.

Yup, I was 5-6 y.o. so my dad downloaded old emulators and racing games because he didn't want to buy me a gameboy advance. I remember downloading cs 1.6 all by myself and then it all started:D

Finally took apart the Seagate I mentioned earlier and took some photos, The Perfect mirror finish of the disk made for a very interesting subject with a lot of opportunities. Again some links for higher resolution.
