Greetings everyone, some great builds are posted on the forums and I just wanted to showcase my own rare & classic computer featuring the awesome dual socket ASRock K8 Combo-Z motherboard :)

Me and my cousin are classic gamers and this computer runs great for both of us, the motherboard has everything I need to overclock the AMD CPU and it has the cool and quiet mode., performs high and stable. ASRock and AMD are the only companiess out there that try to make their products last, and this is just goes to show their products do perform high and last the test of time! This is why I chose ASRock and AMD.

Very proud of this build and proud to show it to you



It has the Socket 754 and Socket 939, I am using the 939 with AMD Athlon 64 3000+ CPU overclocked to 2.5ghz


A closer look!



My AMD Radeon card!



AMD Case stickers!

Yes I still have the packaging and accessories :P



Hope you liked it and got some nostalgia! ASRock and AMD are awesome, if you have any questions just post or PM me and I'll reply.

Thanks & good luck to all!

Nice board and vintage setup. The XFX does not blend in that good.

You are using an AGP graphics too, that's a nice touch.

The bad thing - You had a sh*tty PSU before, so the caps are mostly done for it,
You should re-cap to save this board from going dead.

Thanks for the reply, the PSU died and I had to get a new one.

I would re-cap but I am not comfortable with soldering :/

When you show up with a 486 DX2 66. That will be rare and classic. ;)
