Re: 1997 Pentium MMX Rebuild

Hi guys, it's been a while since I've been here. I had to leave my hometown because of work, so this build is waiting for my return. Meanwhile I keep looking for retro stuff for it.

2007 WinXP full NOS build

I love NOS hardware. The unboxing, the smell, it is so exciting! Also I wanted to build some late WinXP machine. So I decided to build a fully NOS system! Fortunately, there is no big problem to find some 2007 new parts. CPU I had 2 options. To go with Pentium 4 541 or Core 2 Duo E6750. New and …
