It's just my weekend rig this is my main system. Older but still powerful.

I am just really interested in older/budget stuff for some reason. Far more intriguing to me than those build with $1000+ CUPs or GPUs.

Both are nice user.
I'm getting ready to build a Win98 retro machine, went with:
P4 2.8 Ghz Northwood
MSI i875P motherboard
1 GB DDR 400 Mhz dual channel
GeForce 4 Ti 4200 64 MB
SB Audigy
250 GB SATA HDD
beige case

Only need to buy a new PSU, already have all the other parts. All in all it cost me ~8€ excluding the PSU.

and it seems you go for estetics too. Props to you.
Got the 2600 this month before it was rocking a i3 2120 which held up surprisingly well.

My bad I thought it was used sarcastically. I guess it makes sense that people would want to know about decent budget builds for modern games. Whoops =(

I've also been thinking about doing a Win98 machine, that era of machines had a lot of competing parts with a wide array of architectures/drivers/protocols that games had to do a lot of shit to get the compatibility down, which also means that a good deal of them don't really do so hot running on modern hardware now that the market's pretty much just intel/nvidia/amd. I do hear that pentium 4 doesn't have very good DOS compatibility though, which is why it's cheaper than a 3

That depends solely on what you want to play. It's amazing for late era SVGA DOS games like System Shock and Descent.
It's way too fast for most of the older games like Wing Commander 2 or Sierra adventure games.
Come to think of it it's not terribly different in terms of compatibility to a P3 machine, you definitely shouldn't go over a P2/K6-III for older DOS games.
One extra thing is the lack of ISA support, but most later era games work fine with PCI sound cards.

1050 doesn't need external power, so it'll be fine. You may need a low profile card if your case is small form factor.

Isaac Martinez

this is good advice, the low profile which I'm using only draws 75W from the PCIe slot, and the computer only has a 240W PSU so I was worried as fuck but it works
can play New Vegas on maximum settings at 1080p 60fps so I'm happy so far, plan on upgrading to an i5-2500K @3.30Ghz, not sure if my CPU is too hot already though, it sits at around 36-40
whole thing only cost £280 in the end

I had a 980, but it died and now I have to use an old 770 on it's last let's and when it dies I'll have to use my 560ti. Crypto mining was a mistake.

I think you win if you are not using that ironically.

Also why not more RAM and a bigger HDD?

Very nice.
Does the board support overcloaking though? If not and or if your PSU is too weak for it anyways just go for a 2500 non k or i7 2600.

The 750ti is a fine little card even now and beats the GTX 1030 in most games.

Bought a refurbished Optiplex 3010 for $120 and slapped a 1050 in for another $120.
Optiplex already had 8gb RAM and I just threw all my old HDDs in there.
It's NICE

Recently got this board + an i5 760 for free and I am blown away by how nice it runs.

Planning on giving it to my gfs parents who are still using an old workstation pc with an Athlon 64 6000+, GTS 250 and 8GB of DDR2 ram
