Video is ready, Click Here to View ×

I need a mid 2000’s computer to do some benchmarking on some Nvidia and ATI Graphics cards so I finally got around to making this PC work! Stay tuned for several mid to late 2000’s graphics cards being benchmarked!

System Specs:
AMD Athlon X2 4200+
Asus Motherboard
Seagate Baracuda Sata 250GB

And ATI Radeon X1900 XTX

Some Other Parts I…


  1. That's the PC I wanted back then, unfortunately I only had a 2.4Ghz P4 and Geforce 4 MX 440 that I later upgraded to a socket 939 AMD Athlon 64 single core and AGP Radeon 9250, which brought me from less than 10ps to almost 20fps in HL2 and I was very happy.

  2. I have a Radeon X1900 XT Layin around. But was disappointed when I found out the card isn't any good anymore. just doesnt work. I have my good ol 7900GS tho. Also, Metro last light runs on the 7900GS. dont know how. but it does. 800×600 lowest, 0.5 SSAA which renders half res. and got 28-41fps 🙂 love these older cards. And my one Dell that holds my old really low end GeForce 6200

  3. I really love such retro gaming pc and other peripherals. You should start a whole new series on building old Gaming computers their benchmarks, gaming etc.. It will be real fun to watch 😀

  4. Hey Timmy Joe, what is your take on refurbished electronics and PC peripherals etc?? IM curious because you just reviewed a gaming monitor that its affordable but while doing so you passed right through the section on newegg that has open box and refurbished deals like it wasnt worth it to check out…? I myself hunted down an gaming monitor (on a different site), an ACER XB270H …thats 1080p, 144Hz 27" TN panel (with G-sync!!) for $270 CND !!! yeah thats right 270 CANADIAN DOLLAROONIES, for it! It was just like brand new, no marks or scratches, no issues with the display or the refresh rate etc.! ALTHOUGH I knew it was a risk… it payed off so far! BUT note that I actually bought a Predator model before this one that DID have issues but they let me return for full money back so then I got this one from them instead!
