    I'm not going to offer you sympathy. If it works, it works, regardless of how old it is.

    Dropdatwat told me you need to upgrade at least every 5 years (AT LEAST) for your computer to work

    Even if you are posting ironically, you shouldn't listen to autistic attention seekers.

    I still have a machine from 2007 running regularly.
    I've swapped the main drive for a cheap SSD and installed a couple of spare 2 TB drives in it, and it is still fit for purpose.
    My late 2017 coffee lake rig on the other hand, that piece of shit gets swapped out with a mid level threadripper rig in 2020.

    I miss the times when about $200-250 was enough for a top of the line video card instead of $700-1000 every two years. Updated to Phenom II 965 x4 over the old Intel X5460, as it was sitting at 70C while idle and it wasn't worth a drop of thermal paste. Considering to try out that microwave build and a switch to a monitor that fits inside, would be easier to transport as well.

    and things improved so fast that average RAM literally doubled every year. like if you look at 90's computer things you keep hearing jokes about computers becoming obsolete in a week

    Mate, you were a glint in the milkman's eye back then.
    My dad's Pentium based 200MHz workstation worked at at around 4k € in adjusted for inflation, came with 32MB of ram and a 12MB Voodoo2 card back in spring of '98.
    The company he and his colleagues bought their computers from was shuttered before he ever saw a bill, apparently due to some very creative bookkeeping by the owner who fled the country.
    Later that year I was king of the hill with DUAL Voodoo2 cards in my rig, as I liberated the one in my dads rig and stuck it in my own, with the proviso that I had to let my dad play his flight sims on my rig. This configuration was rendered obsolete almost immediately. And you still weren't born yet.

    I know the price of capable computers for general gaming has fluctuated over the years. I only read about Voodoo cards from old magazines and how Quake 3 melted most of the pcs.

    My first computer I owned was some HP I got before the towers fell, at best I could play Quake 2 on software mode, but barely able for any other 00's games with 3d. I've got bad memories of waiting for Serious Sam: First Encounter to load for 20 minutes. Then I got some used pc with Athlon and Ati 7000 something, but was way behind the curve of tech when Doom 3 and HL2 were to be released. Only the big boys could afford to play them and we the rest were just watching in awe. God I miss those Liero Xtreme clan matches

    You're a little kid, nobody cares what you read about the nineties or early noughties.
    For everyone who was sapient back then (I'm guessing you were about as sapient as a ficus plant by 2007) you just come off as a boorish twat.
