I had not made a single penny from selling modern or old PC hardware, everything either was traded for something else, given away or kept for parts.
Completed the first Diablo for over 200 times, at one point I could recite every text or speech from the dungeon by heart. Diablo II is a piece of repetitive/neverendless/monotonic crap compared to the first part, only the last hell levels felt right, completed that game once and had enough of it, never again.
Never finished either of Warcraft games, but played World of Warcraft longer than I shoul've.
I find DOOM II superior to the first part, also both DOOM and DOOM II are way more fun for me than all of the Quake series + Build engine games combined.
All of my sound cards used in retro builds are cheap entry level, mostly based on YMF-7xx, ESS18xx or SB16 Vibra with no wavetables. The most "badass" isa sound card in my possesion is AWE64 Gold, which in my opinion sounds awful, compared to the Roland GS General MIDI emulation.
I did not have a complete retro gaming setup for over 10 years (PC+monitor+KB+mouse etc.), sometimes I just pull one of the old PCs from my closet and hook it up to test/install/upgrade/fix/play something.
