Do you remember way, way back, when AMD and Intel were trading punches in the CPU battle? We thought it would be neat to go back, waaay back, and build the sort of machine I would have built back in the day - so we did!

  • I have a CIT gold think it says pentium 4 on it lol but is 600w and has lasted me since 2012 has one too many Molex connectors on it though, but like once every 2 years it makes a grinding noise and just needs a little oil and is good for another 24 months, it is so good i am going to buy another one when it finally breaks, only has a 6pin gpu connector though but im sure you can get adaptors same for switching molex to satas, i know loads of people that spent top money on PSU,s and after a year there is a fireball coming out of their PC.

  • AMD never had any chipsets at the time. The chipsets were either nvidia, VIA and ATI , I think, Also was there something called ALI. if I am getting it right was Acer Labs . (Yeah their aladin used to be a legend during socket 7 and K6-2,3 whatever.) I do have a couple of AMD k6 and a few athlons cpus from those times, one was even a so-called black edition. I think it was over-clockable or something. The issue was and is that AMD motherboards and processor and even those Radeons were not very RELIABLE. And once they fail there was no one to honour warranty in India. Intel on the other hand had two things going for them, They marketed stuff well, they did not burn out, Also when they do the warranty guys kick in fast, dealers are all over, Also for the most of market, mean those who don't throw away the pc in an year or two running after frame rate etc, Intel offered and still offer a reliable system, Secondly Linux support was no no on AMD at the time. Trowalds called ATI the worst offender in those times, Even though the title now goes to Nvidia, To make the story short once Redhat 7.1 came and openoffice came in, I just gave up completely on AMD and went Intel way, as for me nothing has changed till now, Even now we can see ryzens freezing the kernel . Hardware standardization has a big part in success, I also remember some Cd-DVD drives bricking when using the pure ATAPI driver on , what was it Mandrake linux?. Later found the drives dont follow standards and they stopped working when ATAPI driver loaded or something like that. Intel was for most of the time linux compatible, At least from kernel 2.4 and later we did have some hardware acceleration for desktops, now all those works out of the box.

  • After my Pentium III with Voodoo 3000 died in 2006 I've been an AMD guy. The year after the computer I built was in an Antec case as well, an AMD Athlon II with Nvidia 8500~ 8GB ram, and Foxconn MOBO. I got everything for around 150$ after haggling on Boxing Day.

Was over the moon to be able to replace my 286 running DOS 6.22 with a 486 SX-25 - was good fun getting the old ISA MFM hard drive controller card / drive working on a much newer system whilst 14 year old me saved enough money to get a VL Bus multi I/O card and suitable IDE drive :-)

  • 2005 was the year I built my first PC. 9th grade. Beige box. Similar mobo (non SLI, slightly older socket). First CPU was an AMD Athlon 3000+, follow up build upgraded the mobo and got a X2 dual core (which was pretty new tech at the time). Wild seeing this created now.

Fastest GPU in the word back then and also the first GDDR 5 GPU on the market. faster then anything Nvidia at that time. Was a nice pc. it ran everything i wanted. Gamed as 1680*1050 resolution. played Crysis 1 at Ultra Settings 60FPS lol. was a good pc back then.
