I still have one of those boards!  Ran a minrcraft server when it first came out.  8gb of ram and 2x 3.8ghz xeons made a nice home server.  At least when MC came out.

My Uncle's 20 year old Duron 1000 based desktop, which started having issues 15 years ago. Bonus points for the near cap lift off:

I'm going to be re-capping it, and swapping it for my Abit VP6. With it's dual PIII 1000, 2GB RAM and a Geforce 6200A (current card is a 64MB Geforce2 MX400). It cost him $2300 back then to have it built. And that's with 128MB RAM and a 40GB Deathstar.
And the cards:

Might just be the labeling being strange for whatever reason?

A bit back, I posted one of my older systems, a Shuttle XPC SG31G2.

For fun, I maxed out everything I could on it.

Core2Quad 9550

120GB SSD

DVD-RW

GT 1030

4GB DDR2 RAM

Windows "9" (windows 8.1 industry embedded pro, with a win7 skin on it)

 

Hooked up to a 28" 120Hz 4k monitor.

 

Doesn't play 4k (not strong enough, wasn't really surprised TBH)

Anyway, don't really have a use for this, I just like building systems.

Sans the 4k monitor, whatcha think it's worth, in USA money?

Unfortenately I haven't got my first PC anymore, a 486 dx2 50 that ran 24/7 for years as  server without a even a heatsink on the CPU (we were living wild in those days 🙂 ). But from my own 'museum' some specials: an old Sony mini laptop (PCG-141C) with a Transmeta Crusoe processor (co developed by Linus Thorvald!)  and my Nokia 770 internet tablet with a foldable keyboard and the navigation kit. 

It all still boots and is complete.

 

The Sony originally came with Windows ME. I replaced that straight away with Gentoo Linux with Openbox and it worked well to watch .avi's in the train.  Unfortenately the HD in the Sony crapped out. At first is was dead when I booted it today. Now it is awake and makes a terrible noise. I tried to remove it as I don't have a spare IDE 2.5 inch left, but is is a bit too hard to get to, so I'll just leave it.

On the picture there is also a PCMCIA card for LAN and... 56k6 modem. Don't have the cables anymore that came with them so it's useless now.

@Bitter actually sent me the BFG version of the 7800 GTX. I love that thing, and it's very useful nowadays for its DVI outputs and in retro rigs.
