Creating this thread as proof you don't need to spend the US gold reserves on a 9x/DOS gaming PC. My cheapest is my SS7 9x gaming PC. It has a fairly standard Super Socket 7 AGP Ali5 motherboard, Cyrix 6x86MX @ 333mhz, a Rage 128 (with VGA, video, and composite video output), 262mb of PC100 SDRAM (the 2x 64mb sticks cost 6 bucks, 132mb stick was already installed), some Creative AWE64 card, a 4.1gb PATA HDD, a bog-standard 1.44mb FDD, an ATX 350w PSU, and a RICOH MP9060 DVD drive which Windows 2000 does not want to detect.
I removed the original ASUS 50 speed since the molex connector broke and added the RICOH from a free, dead PC. I also added a 350w PSU instead of a 250w one to make sure I got all the power I needed. I also added a Modem PCI card and two extra sticks of ram. This entire PC was bought and altered for the hefty price of 13 bucks. Note this guy was bought off **ebay** (I kid you not) so it is really unusual to find old PCs so cheap.
What cheap retro PC do you guys have?
