    Old Faithful

      Description

      This is a rig I built when I moved away for college 6 years ago - I actually sold my PS3 in order to be able to complete this build.
      It has served me faithfully, and nary a thing has been changed since ~ September 2010, when it was built. The only changes are swapping out an old 160GB hard drive (yes, I used a 160 gig HDD), and replacing a failing DDR3 module. Other than that, this rig has traveled about 2000 kilometers since it's build date and, despite some "gray hairs" here and there, it chugs along as best as it can. I still like to make it sweat sometime, with some (attempts at) 3d modelling or video editing, and of course, gaming. Alas, I mostly tend to older titles as nearly everything that comes out nowadays is beyond my league.
