[WIP] Project Nalu, the retro gaming box.

28 September 2016 - 09:42 AM

Project Nalu, Retro build: A system from hardware from 2001-2004 (single core / agp era).
I've started in my spare time wanting to go back and play some older games. But I found getting them to run on modern systems just doesn't give the same nostalgic feel. So I 
decided to build one a system based on parts from that era.
Back then right before the X2 & duel core era took off, I rocked and Athlon XP 3200+ & 6800 ultra AGP. So that was my base starting point. That was the level of performance I 
was aiming for. I didn't want to just buy the first items I found on ebay either, as most hardware from this era was very prone to short life spans. So the part search began...
