I didn't think we'd end up with this question for a while, but it seems we have a time traveller. One of the goals of Stack Exchange is to create content that is useful to future users.
there's a clear path from specific question to specific answer, a useful artifact on The Internet for the education of future readers. - Shog9

Eventually, we are going to have questions that are "old" and recommend "old" hardware. Using the time travel question as an example, any hardware recommended is multiple generations out of date today. It's asking for 10 year old hardware on a personal gaming computer. How do we handle a question that has not aged gracefully and is no longer useful because multiple generations of hardware have come out since the question was asked?
