I'm a big fan of retro games, and, playing old games on modern hardware with emulators and all that sort of stuff never really cut it for me. So, about a year ago, I went ahead and bought myself an old retro PC in order to play Windows 98 games.
It's a Compaq EP/P650/10/9/128c. Apparently it's not a very popular model among the Compaq fans, but hey, I'm pretty happy with it despite how unpopular it is.
OS: Windows 98 Second Edition
CPU: Pentium III 650 MHz
RAM: 512 MB (2x 256 MB)
GPU: GeForce 2 GTS 64MB
HDD: Seagate ST340014A (40GB)
Sound: Sound Blaster Live! CT4780
Network: 3Com 3C905-TX
I use it to play Half-Life (WON), Tomb Raider III, Unreal Tournament and Deus Ex so far, but, I'm planning to have way more games for it.
When I first got it, it came with a Matrox G4+ video card, a Compaq CT5805 sound card, a 20 GB hard disk and it had no network card. I replaced them because I figured the video card wouldn't be powerful enough for Unreal Tournament and Deus Ex, as for the audio card, I just don't think it had enough features. If some of you are interested to get the video card and the sound card, just hit me up and we can arrange something.
Here's some pictures of the computer:
Would love to have you guys' feedback!
