Maybe you shouldn't have posted your modern PCs in 'Marvin, the Paranoid Android\System Specs' if you don't want to discuss them, instead leave them for 'Heart of Gold\Milliways' if you really need to.

I'm done. If I'm ever the OP I'd prefer you didn't reply to my threads in the future.

Although that's not likely to be a problem because you've pretty much convinced me not to bother. The thousands of nice people here aren't worth the trolls.

That's exactly why I stopped posting. There are a few elitists on here that just have to nitpick everyone's builds for no reason other than to feel they're always right. I once posted a nice PCI-based 486 system only to be told VLB is superior and that I'm an idiot for not building a VLB system. Mind it, this system beat every VLB rig in benchmarks hands down. I think your time is better spent enjoying your retro gear than arguing with people who just MUST put others down due to their own insecurities or they'll blow up.

Is this your first time on a forum? Sorry, couldn't resist 😁
There's always some bad apples, that doesn't mean the community sucks. Just apply ignore (the muted list) as you see fit and keep enjoying the retro stuff 😀

Because the point of this thread was supposed to be my vintage pcs and instead it is a discussion of why I'm an idiot for having enough money to not need to part out my old gaming rig.

It's not about you being an idiot for having money to keep around your previous gaming rig. It's about you being an idiot for wasting good tech firsz and money regardless if you have enough or not second.

I'm sure you can get your point across without calling people names, why not give it a try?
