8-Bit Black Mage (Blast from the past build, 2008)

This was my first pc build and I thought it would be neat to have all my builds on here and see my progression as a modder. I'm sure the mods are confused by me requesting to have my 11 year components to be added to the library! This was about 2k wooden cubes and 2 months of work. I won a few pc mod competitions with this and got in CPU Magazine and Nintendo Power!

Heres a timelapse video of when I built it (Note: 480p was the normal resolution to upload to youtube 11 years ago!)

Some of the photos are not the highest of quality due to the year and me not owning a real camera.
