    Download BonziBuddy then delete System 32, for the purposes of planned obsolescence Microsoft puts a 32GB garbage folder on every Windows install to gradually slow down your computer over time

    >old school gaming pc
    what era? XP / Vista will only take you so far back, win98 can take you all the way back to the early 80s.
    i'd suggest a SCSI to compact flash whatever you decide to do with it.

    I recommend getting Batocera or EmuElec running on it, then you can emulate older consoles or computers depending on your preference. For computer stuff definitely check out MSX, PC-98, and Sharp X68000 at some point, there's a lot more out there than just DOS.

      thanks for the recommendations, I definitely want to look more into the MSX. I found a collection of Compile's Disc Station Magazine CD-Roms on archive.org and have been enjoying myself going through them so far.

        There's also FM Towns which I've never been able to emulate, and the Euro computers (C64, ZX Spectrum, Amiga etc.) which have a very active homebrew community, but I still kind of prefer the Japanese computers.

      It's possible someone wiped their ass with that PC before throwing it out. You might have aids now.

    XP and 7 "retro" gaming PCs are a meme. They work fine on modern Windows. There's also hardly any PC games from that era that are better on CRT.

      I can name multiple games that only work properly on 98 and XP. Go get the game Nocturne running on modern windows without literal 10 minute load times for the menu.

        >98
        When did I said 98? I said XP and 7. Btw 98 stuff work great in Linux.
        Nocturne Release Date October 28, 1999
        You can't name XP games without fixes. Also games released during release date of XP are technically 98 games.

    What are the components? If it supports XP I'd install XP and buy a cheap EAX sound card off flea bay. Proper EAX doesn't work correctly most of the time on modern windows. Plus a lot of games just run easier on XP over newer OSes.
