Let's Build A 2005 Retro PC: Athlon X2 3800+ - Nvidia 6800 GT - Classic Hardware For A Classic Era!

Published on

We're building a range of classic PCs to revisit some of the great games of their respective eras - and now it's time to construct a 2005-era machine to tackle some of PC's genuine greats: Doom 3, Oblivion, Far Cry, Half-Life 2. Join Alex Battaglia as he puts together this PC time capsule - and we answer the question, can it run Crysis? (Spoilers: absolutely not).
