    I hesitate to wonder how much I've spent over the years...just thinking back to the $$$ cost to upgrade my PC to handle Windows NT Preview makes me cry....lol

    Again Great build!

    Dude I know what you mean. Built a amd k62 system with a 20GB 5.25" Bigfoot drive. A diamond agp 8mg gpu. A crappy white box case. Cost me $1300. Lol had a like 16 or 32mb of memory.

    Much.
    I figured it would be an air thing.. Sometimes looks overrides fundamentals. I would still flip it. Lol

    ...at the risk of Derailing this thread entirely, I think my first "from scratch" build was a 386/33DX that used MFM hard disks of a capacity around 40MB, and one of the earliest SoundBlasters in existence. I think I actually had 1MB of RAM, and can recall using QEMM on DOS 3.3 and spending hours "tweaking" my extended/expanded memory settings and moving TSR's up into extended RAM.

    All so I could play Wing Commander.

    I think the thing had a Hercules Graphics Video card, and I had a 2400BPS Hayes Modem attached to it so I could connect to BBS's and eventually, Compuserve, Prodigy and AOL.

    The Raspberry Pi gathering Dust in the corner here is _at least_ as powerful, and the SD card it boots off is almost certainly dramatically faster than that old MFM hard disk!

    But the fun I had digging through Computer Shopper and picking my hardware. What a damned blast.

    I miss those days. Now, it seems so easy to build a PC, that I spend more time thinking about how my cables are routed than how to make it work. Honestly, I think that's why I'm taking an interest in Water Cooling. A custom loop looks challenging in ways that putting a PC together no longer is...

    On the other hand...wow are some of the toys we have these days are cool!
