Sure, why not? Here's an old Pentium (Malay ES). Probably still works after all these years.

And lastly, there's the quaint old vanilla iPod!

master chief was fully upgraded with the newest geforce 9600gt from 2008... the plastic was still fresh... he was ready to take on anybody
Image

he even heard fearful solid snake was backed up by the cell processor...
Image

so he called up the athlon mothership...
Image

solid snake was squashed... KIA
Image

looking for more opponents he traveled to quakeworld...
Image

he ran into an annoying critter that just wouldn't shut up so he chased it to its island fortress...
Image

calling up the indigenous mice he had saved in the last world war... they made short work of the critter...
Image

he thought he was unstoppable....
Image

until he met scott equipped with the cyclone geforce GTX 460
Image

what happens next? upgrade master chief with the GTX 460 to make it a fair fight to find out....

http://web.ics.purdue.edu/~mille352/IntelInside.jpg might be a better view of it, I'm new here and don't know how well the forum handles image resizing.

Featuring an Intel Core 2 Duo 4300, AKA why one should be patient when re-applying thermal paste.
Also featuring a fellow grad student who's already too smart. He really doesn't need the boost in brainpower.

Here's my entry "it's a jungle in there"

Note the classic Radeon 9800xt, which at the time was an awesome upgrade from the previous R8500 that I had in this build from the late '90s. I was trying to find the old box with the monster 3d card in it, but who knows where that went...
