LGR - Building My Dream $3,588 Windows XP PC

Let's build a PC! A Windows XP gaming machine from parts circa 2007 to 2008, to be precise. This Core 2 Extreme SLI rig would've cost $3,588 if all the parts were bought new when they first released. Time to put it together and play some Crysis and 3D Pinball Space Cadet.

  • Question for those that made it through the whole build and saw the final specs: _What upgrades or changes would you like to see this PC receive in the future, if any?_ As mentioned at the end I plan to upgrade the sound card and add a PhysX board, but I'd love to hear your suggestions!

    • @NicholeMattera so... I was intrigued and had to look up the case you mentioned here. And holy shit it turns out thats the case I'm currently using. I got it secondhand cause of how absolutely ridiculous it looks. I had no clue it was THAT old. I love this metal giant and intend to keep using it as my main build case going forward.

  • Me realising this pc is only 3 years older than mine I'm so confused because I play GTA fallout and stream edit and record games? Edit: 2010 must have been a massive turning point for pc gaming

  • We are now best friends, cause XP is the best gaming OS to me, period. I play a lot of games on PC from 1996-2005 that era,, most of the best PC game series in history started then. I could only play that decade forever lol. Some games... they can work way better on a windows 8/10 for example. But others, its just not the same, something feels a bit off. No amount of patching and compatability settings could work as well as on the proper OS it was created to play for,,,, or XP. Cause XP plays literally anything without the modern issues with Vista and later.

  • I remember growing up on a shitty Windows XP Professional computer that couldn't even run GTA III without it hard crashing. Man, I really do miss XP, even though it was no treat to use on a PC with only on board 3D Acceleration and no audio drivers at the time. Played so much Counter Strike Source regardless, and it ran stupidly well. But, just like with Clint here, I yearned to play Oblivion on my computer, but it just wasn't up to snuff. I never got past the launcher where you configured the settings.

  • When you got to the 8800gts 320mb, I knew you were in trouble. I made the same mistake back in the day when I bought the 320mb version. It was shit, and could not play Crysis very well because of the memory limitation.

Side note though bro, you HAVE to go with a period case man, and why plugging your power and 24 pin in the front??? I see you were forced to route power to the back because there was no space in the front but WHY in the first place?
