We all love technology, and even today some of us get misty-eyed at the things that blew us away in our formative years.

Good article, please keep them coming Tom!

I always wanted a Q6600 but whenever I had the opportunity I always upgraded my GPU instead so for many years my rig had a P4 3.2GHz in it, back from the day of owning a 6600GT up to a HD4870 and then I squeezed in a second hand Core 2 Duo, 1.88GHz if I remember right?

You know whats missing these days, a white motherboard, remember the one Sapphire made for Crossfire, although it wasn't so great compared to the Asus boards in terms of performance and overclock-ability.

Edit: Do you think there is any chance you could throw together an old rig using these old bits and see what performance they can delivery in todays games, maybe a quick RushKit video?

Edit: Ooo oo! and the Asus 6800 with the blue LED's, always wanted one of them too. :P

I think it's a great idea. Going down memory lane. Prices of components back then. Even systems.

It's good to see some of the older stuff, not much has changed since Sandybridge and things have been a bit stagnant. But form the Pentium 4 and the x38, P35 and up to the 775 chipset there was quite a lot of changes with motherboards, CPUs going to dual core to quad core, RAM going from DDR1 to DDR2 and DDR3.

Motherboard design was certainly a lot different a few years back, with crazy heatsink designs, with weird RAM slot and PCI/E slot colours.
Graphics cards that looked like VHS tapes, and all crazy kinds of things that you don't really get today where the same design is used over and over and only what is underneath in the hardware is changed.

You know what, I might have a look on there too. I don't know why but I always wanted the 6800 mentioned above, it seemed like they just dissapeared of the face of the earth even before they 6600/6800 were done (I think).

OMG is that it? I thought it was sexier than that lol.

You've got to build a rig with the stuff Tom, just give us a quick look round to admire it.

My brother in law still has his Asus P5B Deluxe, Core 2 Duo 1.88GHz, Artic Freezer 7 Pro, Asus 4850...might make an offer!
