    Okay I don't know if anyone has done this before, but everyone can post their computer's stats in this thread, argue over who's is the best... :p

    I'll start, and there's no competition with this one:

    Pentium II 333 Mhz - Only the fastest - In 1996
    384 MB RAM - Actually, I guess this is pretty good lol
    10 GB Hard Drive - The biggest, the baddest, and the best
    5 MB Video Card - Perfect for playing 3 high res games at once - from the 80's

    As you can see, it's gonna be pretty hard to beat that :p

    Mine is OK, it does what I need it to. I don't want to argue.

    I got a better idea:

    Why not start a poll for CPU speeds? CPU's are a good judge of computer age and efficiency and I am actually curious to see what the median processing speed is amongst members. I propse the following categories:

    • 100 mhz to 400 mhz
    • 400 mhz to 1,000 mhz (1 Ghz)
    • 1,000 mhz to 2,000 mhz
    • 2,000 mhz to 3,000 mhz
    • 3,000 mhz +

    BTW mine is a 1,100 mhz

    Jim, I think this is more of a thread of 'how pathetic is your computer' :D


    My beloved Magitronic just went to that 'pile' in the sky :(

    I guess socket 7 really is dead
    It was a Gigabyte Ga5AA motherboard
    K6 500/2- AMD chip
    512 mb ram
    cheapo sound card
    64 mb video
    40 and 20 gig hd's

    and stuff


    It worked well as a surfin box and general duty
    sadly the motherboard went bad :(
    cheaper to start over with a $20 box from a Lexis Nexis auction

    LOL! In that case I can haul my old box out of retirement. It's a Pentium 166 mhz. A 1996 model. It's a socket 5. It has a Quamtum Bigfoot 2.2 GB 5.25" HDD and was upgraded to 64 MB RAM When I got it. I now have the RAM maxed out at 128 MB and have added a 4.1 GB slave drive. One day when I'm bored I'll see if I can turn it into a router.

    Current tower:

    1,100 mhz Duron
    768 MB RAM
    8 MB ATI graphics card soo to be upgraded to Radeon 9200 128 MB
    40 + 20 = 60 GB HDDs
    52x CD-ROM
    40x12x48 CD-RW
    PSU upped to 400W
    USB 2 PCI card added
