Scrap from different decades

A friend of mine wanted to put together a wall display with old hardware so the last time I went to visit my parents I payed a visit to their attic.

I found a bunch of old amd boards with bare die processors still in the socket. And one fully build machine running a single core pentium and a Geforce 9400GT.

I took out the board and the gpu and brought all this stuff back home. When my friend came over to pick it up we were talking about gpu prices and decided to try if this bad boy was still working.

I wasn't going to put it in my main build I had just upgraded, so I used some of the old parts to put this together. And yes it works quite well.
I thoroughly cleaned the cooler and replaced the old paste (which was more like dried cement). Runs at 55C.

Also I couldn't find this gpu here so i put rtx 2060 which is in my main build.

Here are some specs on the Geforce 9400 GT:
