Yo OCAU! So this is gonna happen over the Christmas break but I need to start prepping early I have, in my collection, more or less one PC from each generation of hardware. But they're all a bit all over the place, and I often upgraded the hardware in them with more modern bits and pieces which don't suit the original era. Of course, I can google/wikipedia for launch dates, but launch dates aren't really when we were all putting these parts into systems. I want these rigs to be a reasonable reflection of what was "common" at the time; not only in terms of hardware but also the OS and software/games they were running too. So, let me know what parts you had in yours, what OS you were running, what was typical, etc. Especially for the older stuff as I acquired it all a good few years after it was mainstream and it was often already upgraded. As we go, I will be posting up a separate WTB thread for things I'm missing, and likewise a FS/giveaway thread for stuff I don't need - one of the main reasons I want to do this is because I have boxes upon boxes of stuff that I've been saving up in case any of these systems don't work / need parts. Once they're all done, all that has to go (2 kids, no space etc) Without further ado, let's start right back at the start!
