Slot PIII with L3 cache chips, and more interesting MK 61 programmable soviet calculator, and yes you can play games on this. (I think it is counts as computer, MK 61 has cpu, math co processor, ram)

I was darn close! A die shrunk 7600GT from what I can recall, good GPU back in the day but now a Haswell IGPU would outperform it.

 

That was a big shocker to me a couple years ago, finding out that the integrated graphics in an i3 4130 would trounce a 7800GTX or a 9800GTX. I couldn't fathom CPU graphics killing a discrete card but here we are.

I can't help you buy something if you don't list a budget or intended use.

I can't help you troubleshoot if you don't list your specs/config.

P.S. Pictures usually help.

I have six built Windows XP systems in my basement workshop right now for an upcoming classic LAN party.

Was used for DICE benching to control condensation from just going everywhere.

That particular one is a rare LP NF3-250 Socket 939 board.

Well if old CRTs count...

 

I took a photo of my desk back in 2008(on a similar era phone... The first Galaxy i think), then made it my desktop, then took a photo of that and made it my desktop, etc. etc. for about 3 or 4 iterations. Then i used printscreen to save this.
