Congrats to build. But man, honestly, I hesitate to call my Core2 era build "retro" and I rather writing it with quotes, because even that is pushing it in my eyes. But to call retro 2 years old platform with still supported system, yeah, that's whole another level...

It's only retro if it can't run modern software. What you have built is a beast of a modern system that happens to be running Windows 7, which is still a mature modern 64-bit OS.

If the only limitations of Win7 are artificially imposed (as will soon happen), then it's definitely not retro. Just unsupported.
I flermmed the plootash just like you asked.

To me, a core 2 system can be retro if you are running windows XP on it and it's hardware is geared to run this software well. Of course, core 2 is really at the edge of what I call retro in terms of hardware, it has only just gone over the hill in terms of capacity from being current to near retro.

Anything running windows 7, can also run windows 10, it isn't really retro. Hell, Microsoft still officially supports windows 7, it is still current.

C2D on Windows XP is definitely a retro thing.
But Windows 7 in couple of years become retro for sure.

Windows 7 is still in use in many places. Retro means that something is in use again (after a substantial period of no use), it's in demand again and people have memories about something. Your pc doesn't classify as that.
