Benchmark Scores I once clocked a Celeron-300A to 564MHz on an Abit BE6 and it scored over 9000.
I try not to let anything get too old, and since I can pilfer anything surplus from work once it's struck off the asset register there's no reason for me to let my home rigs get too old.

In saying that, I replaced my HTPC case in October 2009 with a Silverstone Grandia GD04 because it was short-depth. It has been modded internally a fair bit, but it's still recognisably a GD04 after more than a decade. The oldest thing I still use is one of my wireless XBox360 gamepads. I have no idea which of the four is the original, but one of them is from 2006 when I bought the console. Almost as old is the Noctua NH-U12 bought in 2008 for my Core2 Q6600 build.

I'm assuming my Ikea computer desk doesn't count? - I bought that in 1999.

I have a perfectly working 20" Sony IPS monitor from circa 2004. I don't use it because of its 5x4 aspect ratio and I love watching movies sometimes, so it's shelved.

My Logitech laser mouse from circa 2008 is still working near perfectly despite not looking brand new.

My speakers from 2008 are working as if they are brand new.

I still use the same Logitech Deluxe 250 keyboard I bought in the early 00s - it should be around 20 years old for all I know. I wanna replace it with something similar but Logitech does not sell white classic keyboards any longer. What a bummer.

I've no idea how old my DVD-RW drive is. Last time I used it was probably five years ago. USB flash drives and the Internet have rendered it pretty much useless.

My PC case is old as .... <skipped> It's now hosting the third build. No idea why people swap them all the time.

Other than myself (67) I have a SB X-Fi Platinum in the rig I'm on at the moment and a Logitech Z5500 but I replaced the speakers years ago with much better small Infinity's. I have several functional PC's I built, the oldest is a circa 2000 full tower server case with an Asus A7N8X rev 2.0 and a 3200+ Barton in it. I have a Logitech Z680 paired with a daily driver but the rear RF speakers died years ago so it's only stereo and headphones with it now.

Nanao FX-somethin somethin 1600 x 1200 CRT that has been used for CAD for 22 or 23 years ... sitting on floor cause its heavy and to lazy to drag out. Was $2200 when i bought it
Does it still work? If so, put it on ebay, don't toss it. With that resolution it ought to capture the interest of someone interested in a CRT for gaming (relatively high refresh rate, instantaneous response times). Premium CRTs can fetch quite high prices.

I'm still using my Cambridge Soundworks FourPoint speakers which throw out a surprisingly good sound and I've never found a good reason to change them.
Picked them up in a PC World (Hereford, UK) bargain bin in 2000 for £10 and have moved house five times since then with no issues at all.

I used to have that system! Really liked it too, and still regret that I got rid of it. I modified mine a bit - chopped the wires short so that I could extend them to be the perfect length for where they were installed without bulky mid-wire plugs, and drilled holes in the speaker bases to screw them onto wall mount brackets. Got rid of it when I moved and no longer wanted a surround system, but in hindsight I should just have kept it and not connected the rear speakers. Oh well.

It knocks out a pretty good sound doesn't it? Also, since i also have headphones I really haven't seen the need to change it, not to mention the soundbar we now have for the TV.

Was a OCZ Vertex 4 (MLC 512GB SATA SSD), just sold it to a friend for a good price, so after that, probably my HDD's? If not my GPU, but they're all fairly recent. If we're including monitors and the like, definitely my HP ZR30W, got it for a steal a couple years back and it looks amazing still.

Have one laying around here, bought in 2016 when I built my skylake rig but is currently not in use, instead of the dvd drive I've opted for an extra front intake fan. :D

Also my dad is still running my 2006/2008 rig, E7200, Asus P5Q, HD4870 etc...:rockout:

In my main cruncher, the Corsair AX1200 is the eldest. I bought it back in '09 or '10. It has seen many different configurations over the years!
In my second cruncher, the OCZ Vertex SSD is from 2012 and still going strong.
Then there is the Dell U3011 that I bought back in '09 or '10.

Nah, the physical disk copy of GTA V that I bought killed two of my old optical drives. Ended up using the serial key and downloading it from Rockstar Warehouse. Thought I was being clever buying the physical media because the download servers were slammed on day one but ended up having to download it anyway.

Crucial M550 1TB SSD from 2014 which still has 97% NAND endurance left according to HWinfo.

At the time for $460, it beat the living shit out of the Evo 840 by being cheaper while also having real MLC. It was also the same time where I stopped caring about Samsung SSDs since their real world performance don't justify their premiums and still is.

My Dali Ikon speakers, but I might not even count those for this as the Danish know how to build a speaker properly. It's the kind of speaker that would last close to a lifetime. After that my Topre keyboard, but it has some bits here and there, like the backspace clank-clinking sometimes. Probably going to get a Leopold some time to replace it.
