That would be my Western Digital HDD from 2004. It is my main drive but for Christmas I got a 970 Evo. The only problem is that my motherboard is too old (2013) to have an M.2 slot and the BIOS doesn't support it either which means I can't use it as my boot drive. My monitor is a 22" Dell from 2009 and my graphics card is a GTX 760 released in 2013 I believe. So you could say my PC isn't really up-to-date but it's still going strong and I'm trying to the best of my ability to save up for a new one.

I recently had to gut my PC as my RAM died and it was due for an upgrade anyway.

I think the oldest component is my WIFI card. It's an N spec but that seems to be enough for me.
 
Well... My whole build is old as hell, I'm rocking an Intel core 2 quad Q6600, an AMD HD 5670, on a Gigabyte P35-DS3L and 8 gigs of DDR2 RAM. We built this PC back in like 2013 and hardware is really expensive and really hard to come by in my country so all these parts were already used. But on the positive side, using this PC is really a great learning experience. I was around 13 or 14 at the time of building and I knew the hardware was so old, so I learned how to overclock these components and it give me a deeper understanding of all the graphics options and how they affect performance. Also it taught me how to be patient af.

Technica(read Tesco's own brand) 2.1 speakers with sub-woofer. Had them since getting a new PC when Windows XP came out back in '01. Been used on at least 4 PC's since then, still working fine. The two satellite speakers sit on the desk and look OK, but the sub-woofer sits under my desk and has doubled in weight due to the dust on it, lol.
