          I want to see you showcase oldschool hardware audio like EAX and A3d and compare them to modern equivalents to see if we've actually moved forward or not

            SLI the 6800 Ultra's! I had an AMD FX55 with Asus NExtreme 6800 Ultra's in SLI back in the day! It rocked Doom 3.

                      Thought that Mobo looked familiar, I have an Asus p4c-800e deluxe MB with a HIS HD4670 agp card, 3.5 gb ram (4gb was fine for a while but too much for the 32 bit board/operating system and blew up when I was 3d sculpting) 2 X 1tb sata Hds and Windows 7 ultimate 32bit (certain programs require win7 over Xp to run) installed. She is still running awesome, Crysis runs pretty well on it in low mid some high settings. I kept her in operation because it was my first PC build and I had built it with my friend who is no longer with us, can't get rid of it even in 20 years if she's out of operation she'll still be a display piece in my humble abode.

                                That Alex guy is such a moron. He’s so incompetent, so inept, I don’t understand why you hire these people. Dennis the low IQ thief that barely speaks English. The extremely disrespectful and lazy fat guy that looks like a giant 12 year old with glasses. This is a dumpsterfire of a crew.

                                  Nostalgia to the max!! I built my first rig around 2004, so this was a particularly 'romantic' stroll down memory lane. Love it!

                                  Edit: Maybe I'm mistaken...but I believe the 6800 GT/Ultra was a little bit older when [that] Doom was release, so the benchmark might have been a little unfair, but what a fun build. Great work guys!!

                                  Edit 2: No Audigy 2 sound card install??? XD

                                        Valve still provides the downloads for Windows XP compatible versions of Steam, also you can run Windows 10 on this if you install Windows 7 32bit and using the upgrade option instead of clean install but good luck with drivers

                                              I have a big atx case even predating that.. its like even bigger but my mainboard still doesnt fit.. but this motivates me to work on that.. I will get it to work with my old hardware somehow.. like my first gaming build... budget gaming for the amount of money I had at that time.. but still.. SLI 660Ti will be cool I guess

                                                            Doom 3 was brutal on hardware then but funny thing is if you edit the config file and increase the "image_cachemegs" & "image_cachemix" to 768 & 768 even low end hardware of 2004 like that Radeon 9200 and Geforce 5 5200 5500 they'd run at 60fps on high quality or 30fps on ultra and made the high end hardware like the 6800(normal) GT and Ultra and the X800 X850 X850XT X850XTPE run it 60fps locked 1280X1024 effortlessly at ultra and could probably push 1600x1200 as well.

                                                                                      Btw, when I was using the same platform, my strongest AGP card was the ATi Radeon x1950 Pro 256mb 256bit.
