Oh my gosh, the 7300 LE can run minecraft? That card could barely run Doom. Are you sure you are correct.

My dell optiplex has a phenom x2 in it with the 7300 LE. I couldn't even open up a web browser without it getting overheated.

Intel 486DX2 was my first. I played a lot of chips challenge, and that was about it. Lol.

Wow, this is back in the early 90's. I loved the vintage tan color everything had. My nostalgia is commended.

Oh yeah. Before I upgraded my graphics card, I saw my 7300 LE idle at 65C, and shoot up to 80C before throttling soon after. Once I gained more knowledge of computers, I took the heatsink off; The thermal paste was completely dried up, and there was a physical, very obvious gap where the gpu wasn't even in contact with the heat sink!

I loved how it had two clips on the back of the video card that you squeeze together just to get the heatsink off. It isn't the best card for any computer, not unless you are trying to emulate older 90's games.

My first system was a Tandy and whatever GPU and CPU that thing had from the factory. Fast forward a few years ( like 15), my first CPU of my first PC build was an AMD Phenom x6 1055t, with inboard graphics, then upgraded to R9 380 after a few years.

 

Since I was stuck on integrated for such a long time...
