Many months many pennys

This build has been a culmination of my gaming years. Its a celebration of the past and present kings of hardware.
All of these parts have near 20 years between them
Intel Pentium ii 400MHz - Intel i7 8700k
Asus 440BX P2B - Asus ROG Strix Z390mini ITX
3dfx Voodoo 2 in SLI - Asus ROG Strix 1080ti
Case: Phanteks Evolv X
Psu: Phanteks 1000w dual system

I wanted to have the nostalgia of playing Quake 2, Unreal, Unreal Tournament, Need for speed and loads of others with the original hardware that I was using as a kid playing them. I have very little space at home to have more than one pc setup so this is why I am squeezing them into one.
Hope you like my build. Still not finished but after a year and a half and two designs I thought I’d share my failures and lessons learnt
