Prometheus is a multi-purpose PC that was originally built to serve as a gaming and entertainment machine. It served well in this capacity and played all the hottest titles of the time. After a couple of years, it took on the server role as well as maintaining its gaming and entertainment duties. It spent almost all its life paired with a Sharp 46″ HDTV. It has gone through a long list of operating systems during its lifespan – Windows XP, Vista, 7, 8, 10, CentOS 7, Ubuntu 16.04, 18.04 and 20.04. While it can still game today, its not the spring chicken it used to be. Prometheus was converted to a headless dedicated server in 2019 and still goes strong today. Prometheus currently hosts the virtual machine that runs this site. This amazing machine has served well over a decade! While it has seen parts come and go, the core components (CPU, RAM, Motherboard, Power Supply, etc) have never been changed. The only components to have ever failed in its long lived service are a couple of case fans.
And YES, it CAN still run Crysis!
