I propose a rule: A P4, DDR1, or 40GB HDDs and anything newer should not be considered retro.

Why not PC100, P-ATA 66?


Soft and clean.

Sure. I had a PIII with PC100 RAM until 2008 when I got a P4, which I had until 2012.

STOP COPYING MY UPGRADE CYCLE!!! ;)

I think my current computer is a weensy bit better than yours. (As in a lot.)

 

Was your P3 like the one in the picture above or was it like the newer type of CPU with the pins and goes into the motherboard with heatsink on top? Mine was a 766MHz with a 64MB Radeon card. Hours of playing 18 Wheels of Steel.

lel meh. Was using MMX but wasn't mine, was my father's... so... My cycle looks like -> PIII up to 2003; Athlon XP 2600+  up to 2011; Athlon II P340 X2 (lol yeah, a laptop) up to 2012 <- This is the only PC I threw away... I don't want to talk about it (It's a scary story of electricity and smoke...); i7 3610QM up to 2013 and in that same year got my i5-4570 :3

Mine was the old slot style. And I'm thinking about getting a GTX 650 Ti and a Phenom II X4 925, so we'll be even, except I'll have 2GB of RAM.

Also have a gt6500(i think) in an old pc.


In the grim darkness of the far future, there is only a GTX 1080, just a single 1080, where my glorious PC once stood....

For that is all I need, For the Emperor of Man, Jen-Hsun Huang, protects. We march for Nvidia, and we shall know no fear!

I wouldn't say "old", but I have an E8400 and a GA-EP45-UD3P sitting underneath my bed and I think I will be rebuilding the beast once again. I'm still going to need an operating system and a case for it though. I used to have a QX9650 and an EVGA 790i SLI board with 3-way SLI 465's, but it fried when my OCZ psu exploded.

We got rid of most of our old P2 and P3 systems in our basement a couple years ago but now we have a lot of P4 stuff, a tiny bit of Core 2 Duo stuff, and a bit of AMD stuff. I think we still have some old RAM sticks in the closet.. (Like before PC100)
