I'm kind of surprised an OS as bloated as Win10 will even run on something like this.
No, specs like this are better suited for a lightweight Linux. Sure, a lot of AAA games aren't going to be supported, but what AAA games would you even play on a machine like this anyway?
Isn't every install of Win10 bloated?
I think it can go up to about the PS1 era.
My PC was built about a year ago, but it'll most likely still be able to run TES VI.
Windows/386 (AKA Windows 2.1) will run, so there shouldn't be much of a problem putting Minesweeper on it.
If you put in 360K more RAM then you could even install Windows 3.1, which had it included.
Sure it can. IBM even shipped a similar machine with it included back in the day.
It's an EVGA unit, so it's probably not that bad. A better one would be advisable though.
Still more interesting than the 568758900 8700K/1080Ti builds out there, if only because it's on AM1.
That's a really cool monitor setup. And this is coming from a guy with 4 monitors.
Wow, how'd you manage to fit it inside such a small case?
Wow, a Linux machine, you don't see that often. More specifically, a Linux machine that isn't running some descendant of Debian.
You can literally run it on the CPU a hard drive uses to manage its cache lol
I built my first PC at 13 too, but damn, you've got some serious skills. I just did a normal build for the most part. Sure I had a couple fingers disabled, but here you are soldering and stuff.
I mean, they featured a build titled 'Literal Garbage', so I think the bar's pretty low at this point.
A trash heap held together by multicolored zipties. I like it.
I see you too name your computers after elements.
Was that a typo, or are you just a time traveler?
Yeah, it's got the old PCPP on the second monitor on one of the pictures, so definitely old.

The memes have gotten too spicy for me. I just can't keep up.
WOW! Four hundred and eighty whole pixels? Mine can barely do 3!
You know your budget is high when your limit is 'parts on the consumer market'.
Actually, it's probably just because you're running a 32 bit copy of Windows.
I like how you misspelled as and PCPP censored it.
oh man dual monitors this thing must be a beast.
The day I decide to update my part list.......
Got a timeframe for when it'll return?
How did you even find this place?
Probably cheaper and he didn't need the extra PCI-E slots.
Ryzen definitely would have been the smart choice here.
+1 for LGA775
Was the old computer an HP Pavilion Slimline 400-334?
Honestly you should've gone for Lubuntu here. Runs way better on ****** PCs.
That is one expensive graphics card.
120GB should work fine.
Just buy one and put it in one of the 3.5 inch bays.
That is an odd choice of processor.
Honestly I'm pretty surprised that can run Minecraft.
Those prices actually aren't that horrible. Except RAM. That one's bad. I assume the reason for no SSD was that they're even more expensive than up here?
Was the Slimline a 400-334?
has a 480 so just goes home and turns settings up
GHG did that with a Pentium D 945.
It was......... interesting.
Isn't it beautiful?
No, the best way to make a sub-$100 PC is to start with an Optiplex from the Core 2 era and add a GPU and some RAM.
Damn, budget builds are as old as PCPP itself.
First Nvidia build on PCPP.
And here I thought I was special building one in 9th grade at 13.
Keep Core 2 alive!
