New Member... New build(s)!!

Postby Artex » 2012-4-05 @ 20:00

Hello everyone! I recently stumbled across this board while in the middle of a nostalgia attack, and I've quickly become obsessed with building replicas of my old PC(s) from way back in the 1995 - 1998 timeframe. I will be putting everything together soon, but here's what I've picked up so far. I'm very excited!!

Both builds will be inside some older (but in fantastic shape) Enlight mid-towers. Just gotta sort out what's gonna go where...

I look forward to sharing more pix as my projects come together!

Some sort of case badge and a whiter CD-ROM drive would really bring out the beauty in that case.

Every time I see an Enlight case, it makes me want to kick a puppy. Other than that, i love the rest of the pictures!
It is a mistake to think you can solve any major problems just with potatoes.

Loved those old Enlight cases, had a couple of the desktop versions in the same design. Shame I had to sell them though to make room for larger things Lol :evil:

Not sure I see the appeal. I've a loft full of crap I should have dumped as I upgraded (still got a crappy beige ... yellow now of course case up there FFS!). To me an old machine is just cranky, difficult, slow and noisy :)

My 386 aside, none of them are cranky difficult or noisy. :D

That's a very nice Orchid Righteous 1 card with mechanical omron relays. Maybe some day I'll get one.. just like how I'll be getting a 3dfx rampage :p (yeah right).
