    Whoops. I was one of the bidders on it but just got out bid. Go for it. I talked myself out of it.

    NCASE M1: a crowdfunded Mini-ITX case (updates in first post)

    Honestly, I hope the next one will be called the M2. Keep it simple. Reminds me of BMWs. Feels right.

    NCASE M1: a crowdfunded Mini-ITX case (updates in first post)

    For what it’s worth, I think the case still looks great. It’s iconic, and I find most flat face cases boring. But as you say, to each their own.

    NCASE M1: a crowdfunded Mini-ITX case (updates in first post)

    Quoted for posterity and not as a dig at vipz. This case overcame all of the hurdles to be in production for 8 full years. What a run. What an amazing run…

    so i finally won a newegg shuffle but lolz at the msrp

    NewEgg has fallen so far from when it was the go-to for PC hardware. Such a shame. I have a the exploding Gigabyte PSU from when I ended up with their 3070 combo.

    Great news everybody! RTX 30 series hashing limiter partially defeated!

    News like this makes me want to turn off my PC, go outside, and do something productive while that giant glowing thing in the sky is up. What do they call that thing?

    NEW CPU Benchmark for Gamers and Overclockers 3-D Mark

    Everything from the 9900K and later there is little return. Ryzen is even worse. A few hundred MHZ for hours of work to get it Prime stable. But I still like a challenge so I went SFF. Right now I have a 5950X undervolted being cooled by a Noctua L12S in a 6L case (CCD MI-6). It’s not the...

    The Post Your Old/Retro Builds Thread

    Here is my latest pick-up. My personal unicorn. A fully functional Acer Aspire from the mid 90s with matching monitor. I also have the keyboard. These things were poorly built,beautifully stylized, and hard as hell to find. I plan to upgrade it with a faster CPU, max RAM, and Voodoo2. If it...

    3dfx Making a Comeback?

    LOL. I was trying to find a decent PCI Voodoo card for a retro build today. I have a pair of sealed, new-in-the-box Voodoo2s, but I don’t want to open them. Actually, if NVIDIA did run of Voodoo5s with an AGP and PCI interfaces, I would buy one.

    Got My New Mac...

    Oh boy. LOL. That’s an oopsie. I started on Macs so when my friends talked about sound cards and Dos I was clueless. I decided to keep this as 68020 CPU. If I need faster I have a 180mhz 603e MacClone. What I am doing is maxing the ram (10MB), VRAM (512k), and installing a math co-processor...

    Got My New Mac...

    Mostly for collection. It's a unique design from a unique time. You could use it for basic office work if you don't need the Internet. Technically, it's impossible to remotely hack as it has no modem or network connection. 😝 I could also throw an Apple IIe card in it, or a 68040 card. But...

    Got My New Mac...

    Mac LC that is! Estate sale. Best I can tell, this system was bought, upgraded to 4MB of ram, had old Mac SE files transferred, and then boxed and never opened again. It came with the System 7 disks but it's running System 6. I've already ordered 512KB of VRAM and 8MB of DRAM in order to upgrade...

    Atari Gaming moving away from free-to-play and mobile games

    My first gaming experience was on the original Atari 2600. I had a few good times playing with my father. However, I don’t have any real nostalgia for the games. Growing up, we were always looking for the next system to give us something other than colored blocks and whatever passes for the...

    Arm Is RTX ON! World’s Most Widely Used CPU Architecture Meets Real-Time Ray Tracing, DLSS

    My only question: Will it run Zelda BOTW at 60FPS in at least 1080P? I wonder if Nintendo could integrate something like a 3060 into their dock and still have it seamlessly switch to handheld.

    Steam Deck officially announced by Valve

    Well, Steam crashed when I tried to check out. I did manage to pre-order the 512GB model about an hour later. So probably 2022 will be the ship date for it. I'm looking forward to this little mini-rig. I'm also looking forward to using it as an emulator.

    Happy Quakiversary!

    The Riva 128. I had one with a P2-300. That was a funky card for it’s day. I never did get Quake running on it though. Had a V2 by then.

    Happy Quakiversary!

    Same day I played Quake LOL. I tossed an AWE 32 Gold in that rig and it sounds great with Duke. Now Doom on the other hand, well I actually really like the PS4 port due to them using direct capture forms a Roland MT-32 for the music. Hmmm…. I think I’ll play some Mech Warrior 2 today….

    Happy Quakiversary!

    I had a Pentium 120 (HP desktop) at the time Quake launched. I was at an Electronics Boutique and the manager, who was a friend of mine, let me have a copy earlier than launch to try it out. I played it, and thought it was good, but Duke Nukem was better. LOL The last time I played Quake 1 was...

    GDM-FW900 CRT (needs repaired)

    CRTs…. I miss them. The FW-900 is the ultimate one. However, if you are into retro gaming, a CRT is a must. I have a 36inch WEGA CRT for my retro systems. I also have a Trinitron 17 Inch monitor for my Windows 98 rigs. The response time, feel, and image is just better on them. Even my CX48 OLED...

    Windows 11 May Not Run on Early Ryzen, Threadripper, Skylake-X, or Any Pre-2016 Intel PC

    Wait… what’s happening? I’ve been busy the last week installing Windows 98SE on various retro machines and fighting with Voodoo drivers… Windows 11 is already giving me the same feeling that Windows Vista did. I’m going to wait and see.

    Your daily reminder to not trust "Free" games from the interwebs

    No. It’s been linked to crappy communities, poor mechanics, hackers, tweeners screaming in headsets, Linus tech tip videos, and the desire to use a controller instead of mouse and keyboard. Immediately delete it from your hard drive and install Battlefield 1 or Titan Fall 2. We need players…

    I think we need to see what the Sony fridge offers before we reserve the MS one. I heard it will have a smaller motor, but it will spin a lot faster. It will also have several drink racks specifically designed for some exclusive bottles that will only fit in the Sony fridge. Nintendo won’t be...
