    I have an old i3 2100 lying around. Looking for interesting uses for it.

    Well, my girlfriend just expressed the need for a NAS to store all of her streams and media, so it looks like that's the route I'm going with it. I'll just do an in home server for her to use as backup. I have very little experience with networking, it's definitely my biggest weakness. It'll be...

    ATX vs mATX vs ITX

    I decided to do an overkill XP machine with it. Just need a board and case.

    Looking for the best video card that is compatible with WIndows 98

    I think I'm going to do a socket A/462 Athlon xp build for it. I had a 2500+ Barton chip back in the day, and I'd like to play with that legendary cpu again.

    Xbox Game Showcase Event (ft Nate the Hate) | MVG

    Just knowing it's officially coming after being in development hell was enough. The trailer dripped the atmosphere we all know and love, too. It was a nice teaser for the old school fans. Seeing the village from SoC, throwing the bolt into the electrical anomaly, etc., the music. It just oozed...

    Looking for the best video card that is compatible with WIndows 98

    Doesn't have to be period specific, just period compatible. I'm fine going with later model stuff, as long as drivers work. In fact, I'm a firm believer in "there's no such thing as overkill".

    hd6450 replacement?

    You can probably grab a cheap 750ti low profile.

    S.T.A.L.K.E.R. 2 was the highlight for me. My favorite game series of all time.

    From Intel Earnings: Intel says accelerating 10nm product transition, 7nm product transition delayed

    Their 10nm is really more like AMD's 7nm, but we don't really even know when that is coming.

    I use an Nvidia shield out there. I'd need a video card capable of 4k HDR, as well.

    The problem with those boards may be XP compatibility. I think I'm going to do a windows xp build for retro gaming.

    Hmm. Think I'm going to go for a SFF build of some sort, as well.

    ATX vs mATX vs ITX

    I've had this psu for like 8 years, and I love it. I want to do another SFF build with an old i3 2100 I have lying around.

    ATX vs mATX vs ITX

    I used to have a SilverStone SG03. That's a super tiny and compact matx case, as well. The psu sits on top of the cpu, though. Cable management is non existent, too. It's very pretty, though. I don't think they make it any more.

    ATX vs mATX vs ITX

    https://www.aliexpress.com/i/10000221324472.html Smaller than a lot of ITX cases, but doesn't support a full PSU. If you're looking for compact, you're going to have to sacrifice something. SFX power supplies are great.
