I love walks down memory lane! It's been nearly 20 years (Jan 1998) when I built my first PC, a Pentium II 333MHz with an Nvidia Riva 128 GPU. Moving from console with a 640x480 resolution TV to a gaming PC using a 1280x1024 resolution desptop monitor was a thing of beauty to my eyes. Quake II was the first game I played on it, and I will never forget being in awe at how far down the halls I could see and shoot the enemy - the visual quality and depth perception took gaming for me to the next level. I never looked back. The only mistake I ever made in hardware selection was jumping on the RAMBUS memory bandwagon with a Pentium 4 build as RDRAM was abandoned (and wise I might add).
