    I have pretty much all that hardware sat here in various forms, though the good old Raptor X was a nice surprise, as i still have mine! Shame you couldn't have gone for an AGP Radeon of that era or the fastest AGP card but that wouldn't stick to the same year! I have some 9700 and 9800 cards sat here too :)

      For some reason I enjoyed this build. It even made me look up the old tests on the ABIT BP6 with my overclocked Celerons @ 500MHz that ran the Quake dedicated server. I'm so old...

      Purchase a wavetable synthesis soundcard... and compare the sound on old games to the new onboard sound... it will blow your mind. ;)

          Linus should dye his hair grey, get those round glasses and do a father-son video with Alex.

                        I would suggest use a thermaltak P5 for the case, you can mount the hard drive for display reasons and also can mount a quad rad

                                                  it can support a dual floppy because on one floppy header you can connect and configure 2 floppy drives

Mine has a pentium 4 but no graphics card, and i don't know if it even has intergrated graphics but the motherboard has socket 478 on it too. I salvaged the parts from two old pcs that i found. It runs linux because i cant get any version of windows running on it (including XP) lol

                                                                                                I have an old power supply too and it doesnt even have a 4+4 CPU connecter, just a 4 pin lol
