            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

                                                  I have pretty much all that hardware sat here in various forms, though the good old Raptor X was a nice surprise, as i still have mine! 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 :)

                                                    For some reason I enjoyed this build. It even made me look up the old tests on the ABIT BP6 with my overclocked Celerons @ 500MHz that ran the Quake dedicated server. I'm so old...

                                                    Purchase a wavetable synthesis soundcard... and compare the sound on old games to the new onboard sound... it will blow your mind. ;)
