I had an Amiga PC, it was the dogs balls in those days. Well, when I was like... 8? Maybe? I don't know.

If anyone remembers the Amiga, which you will, do any of you remember a game called Tanks? And it was a 2D scroll-er, similar in style to the first GTA. Completely open ended gameplay, you could go anywhere, shoot any wall, fight countless tanks, was absolutely brilliant for it's time.

Ah well, I think, my first Windows PC was an IBM 200 mhz 8mb RAM, 16gb HDD, that was a large HDD at the time. I had dial up with AOL, and it was so bad, I may as well have gone to the library and read the information, and come back, by the time that thing was done loading anything.

Haha!

Shame I don't have any old photographs frown.gif! Ah well! You've all seen what an Amiga looks like!

My first computer was a Sony MSX, Model HitBit-10-P. It was supposed to be the newest and best thing, well it cost enough at the time I remember because I had just started working and I saw this thing and fell in love LOL
It took cartridges for games atc and also run of a tape drive from memory?
I remember back in school some "rich" kids had commodore vic 20's eek.gif They had a blinding 1mhz cpu and 5k of ram and of course a tape deck was definately needed. Was funny because when these things first came out another toy was launched about the same time, dual tape decks and yup video game piracy was invented LOL
After the sony I have had AMD 400's. pentium 133s, etc, all expensive up until the last one I built that only cost about 1700.00 I remember the pent 133 costing nearly 3k eek.gifeek.gif

Original IBM PC. Added a hard card as the first mod I every did. Still have it and it still boots.

As for times changing. I remember working on an IBM Mini that had a 10mb HDD and thinking about how amazing and cool it was that the drive was actually smaller than the box of Kleenex sitting on my desk.

I'm 17 so I wouldn't have experience the super slow day, my first PC was actually decent.

Intel P4 3.2 GHz 1 core.
ATi x800
1 GB RAM
160 GB IDE HD
400 watt PSU.

It was a Dell gaming PC that my father bought to play Doom 3?, NFS Underground 1 & 2, and CSS. I think it was 2004 when this was purchased.

My first comp that I bought was an HP.

HP s3300f Slimline
AMD Athlon 64 x2 5000+
2GB Hynix DDR2 800
NVIDIA GeForce 6150 SE
330 Watt PSU.
500 GB Sata HD.

I played CoD4 on that sucker with 20-30 FPS on 640x480 for 2 years. lachen.gif
