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

I'm not quite sure if it even has a video card, but my super CPU doesn't need one to handle Halo :)
