              There's something about the complexity of vintage hardware that's just cool.

                        Dude this brought back so many memories. I had an athlon 64 and two BFG 6600GTs in sli. Two 6600s was faster than one 6800 ultra. Dam I miss the good old days. I remember my friend got the 3d1 dual gpu from gigabyte.

                                                    2002 was my year with computers. My computer was "Elitegroup K7S5A with 128mb SDRAM (2 DDR slots available), Duron CPU with 950Mhz, GeForce 2 MX400 video and 20Gb IDE Seagate 5200rpm hard drive. Later i upgraded the CPU with AthlonXP 2000+, and 1Gb DDR 266Mhz memory. My dream was something like GeForce 4600Ti or something like that. I dont remember well. It was loooong time ago :Д

Shame you couldn't have gone for an AGP Radeon of that era or the fastest AGP card but that wouldn't stick to the same year! I have some 9700 and 9800 cards sat here too :)
