  1. Hey techies,
    I've recently acquired a bunch of old motherboards, RAM and modem components, and I want to be able to do something cool with them as a little project but this is my first venture into anything like this - I'm fine with investing money into this as well.

    Any ideas?

    Thought these were interesting in their own way.

    @cliffordcooley That would be the most uncomfortable chair ever!

    There isn't much you can do with old PC parts. You can see if you can get a working system put together and then put 98SE on it and you'd have a solid early 90s-early 2000s gaming rig.

    True! Think of all the fun you could have by sitting in it, for just one day out in public.

    To the upside, it definitely would get you off your a** and out of the house....;)

    I wonder how many poor PCs gave their lives in vain to create that monstrosity?
