Good lord, those prices - if only that equipment had cost so little back then!snip
Those were such good motherboards, and nice work getting it flashed - definitely need for those added features for tweaking.
I remember when the TNT2 was impressive, haha, how times change, and even by 2001.
That is quite the official build, and it sounds like everything is legit from that era, circa late 1990s to early 2000s - very nice work!
Yeah, tell me about the bloat...
I remember when the Linux kernel 2.6.32 would load within 30 seconds on a single-core Atom system, and now with Linux kernel 4.XX, it seems to push even higher-end systems more than it should - just so much code needs to be loaded for everything to work, plus the additional features.
Hell, I am running just Chromium with only 8 tabs open on the Jaguar system in my sig, and it is using ~427MB of VRAM just for that - crazy!
Thanks for the great memories, and for sharing, I'm really impressed and would definitely like to see some pics of your new build if you have some time.
