Building an ultimate retro PC circa 2005 you would think parts would be expensive.  On the contrary I have been able to find some equipment for pretty cheap.  Take this CPU block from Swiftech for instance,  cost me about 15 bucks.  Does it need a good lapping? Sure enough.  Will I need to open it up and do some cleanup conditioning? For sure.  Going down memory lane and building a PC with every part I would have gotten (if I could have afforded it) feels much like a car enthusiast does when they go to a junk yard and find a replacement transmission for a classic car.  I wish more people were into archaic hardware, its cool stuff!!  Maybe we can start a trend and do meetups or something.  Coffee and Overclocks or some sort.
