Hey /g/, I'm about to sound like an emotional grill but whatever.


So I recently dug up my old gayming rig from when I was 9. (Dell inspiron 530)

I haven't been a mustard race gaymer for a while. Upcoming meme star citizen looks cool and interesting, as well as all the supposed DX12 stuff coming down the road.


So I need a rig.. I'd like to simply upgrade this one for nostalgia purposes. Is there any way of simply installing a new mobo? I know there are form factors involved, according to Google the motherboard form factors is Matx. What socket/cpu do you recommend?

Yeah you could put a new motherboard into that case, but it would be a stupid idea.

Those cases have shit air flow, and any decent hardware is going to run really hot. Plus it isn't going to have shit for features compared to a new case, stuff like ssd mounts, tool less mounting, decent cable management, ect.

Is is possible, I saw some "stealth" rigs here. i7 & 980 SLI in a 2001 desktop case.

You'll need to buy everything new, also the PSU is too old and possibly shit.

I did similar for myself, upgraded a Phenom I rig with Phenom II, SSD and a GPU. But if you want to get into DX12 you need a real station, at least 2nd gen i5 and a 900 geforce (or similar).

I had an R4 for a work computer when I was a SolidWorks jockey, and have a Define XL build at home. They're great cases, good cable management, low temps, and nice and quiet.

Literally what I'm doing, I have a Dell 530s that I upgraded from 1 to 6 gb of ram, and I had an hd 5450 in it until it started overheating and I replaced it with a gt 640 that my dad found in a trash computer. 4gb of the ram also came from the trash computer, and my brother gave me the hd 5450, got the computer itself from my uncle, and had a hdd that I stole from my old school laptop as a secondary until it failed a couple months ago. Spent 10 dollars for the initial upgrade of two 1gb sticks of ddr2. My pc is essentially Frankenstein but I get 30fps in most games.

Sometimes those old cases can be used for modern builds if you use modest, energy-efficient hardware. Right now I'm doing a build with a beige case using modern but efficient parts: i5-4670, GTX960, etc. It's not a high powered gaming build, but the parts suit my needs just fine.

When I look at pics of the inside of that Dell case, the only issues I see are a lack of an intake fan, and no standard mounts for 3.5" drives. Depending on how much time you want to spend, I'm sure you could come up with workarounds to solve these issues but you'll need a drill/dremel and some creativity.

This shit thread actually brings me back a bit. Back in the days when I had my brand fucking new voodoo 3. I was gearing up to play the most amazing game I had ever played at the time, I believe it was Star Wars Dark Forces II. Yeah I have no idea what those frame rates were but it didn't even matter because as Kyle Katarn, I was fucking up alien scum and sith alike.

This also kinda reminds me the first time I ever laid eyes on a 1080p screen. I was walking through Microcenter and had to do a double take because of how clear the images were. It looked like real life.

And don't even get me started on the first PC game I ever played. Fucking Commander Keen. You guys wanna get uppity about frame rates, that shit probably ran at 5fps.

Kids these days will never know what it was like to game on a CRT at 600 x 400 resolution.

This is probably why I have to wear glasses today.
