A build from New-Old-Stock just to try and keep things even between the Intel and AMD builds.
This one is featuring a Prescott Pentium 4 running at 3 GHz and also has a rather unsual nVidia GeForce 3 Ti 200 64MB made by ASUS that features Video Capture abilities.
Unfortunately, this is a rather underwhelming machine for 2004 and I think the SIS 661 chipset is mainly to blame.
My other build from 2002, an AMD machine two years older runs circles around this machine, the GF3 could only must 8508 points in 3DMark2001 and the X800 more than doubled it with 23919.
Even with an 80mm intake and an aftermarket Akasa fan, the CPU still reached 60C and higher so I 3D printed my own custom 120mm fan bracket to go in the PCI slot area just to try and increase the airflow, but honestly what it really needs is a non-2000's PC case with ample intake and exhaust setup.
