My First PC!!! What was yours? - Page 30

post #291 of 393
My first computer was a Compaq Presario 7480! It had an AMD K6-2 processor, 128 MB RAM, a 6 GB hard drive, and it ran Windows Me... I still have it, but it needs a new motherboard:

It's so bloody hard to find spare parts for old computers these days :@

My first pc was an Acorn BBC Micro Model B 32k. On this monster of a computer I used to play such graphics heavy games as Frack and Chucky egg!!!! Until, on one sad day, on returning from holiday in Wales! I turned on my state of the art pc and heard a fizz and a futt and found that a mouse had nested snugly next to the CPU. Alas I never Chucky egged again!
I take solace in the fact that the mouse got its just deserts
, death by electricution![

Ah,yeah,well,my very first "PC" was a Spectrum ZX 48k back in 1983... (OMG, I am old). Not much room for pretty much anything other than air particles,let alone a whole mouse...

My family's first computer was a Digital (DEC) Pentium 75MHz [P54C] model from sometime the mid-90s, 1994/5 maybe?

The first computer of my very own was a Dell Dimension XPS T450, which as the name might suggest was a Pentium III 450MHz [Katmai] from September 1999. Came with 64MB of SDRAM and a 3DFX Voodoo3 video card and it still works!

A 286-20 with Math coprocessor! (1988?) The hottest iron money could buy at the time.
The second was a 386-33 with 750M hard drive (1992)

Looking to upgrade now from my I7 930 at 2.8 GHz

Mine was P4 dual core 1.6 with msi G31 board, 512mb ram and 160gig wd sata drive. Came standard with windows vista starter. By far the worst i've owned... I had it 3 weeks before the board blew. I still have it, more surprisingly

My first computer was a big pile, but I absolutely loved it. It was the first real 'gaming' desktop that I purchased on my own.

Intel Core 2 Duo e6400 at 3.0ghz
EVGA 780i Motherboard
Patriot Viper DDR2 800mhz
Sapphire HD 4830 512mb DDR3
Random 250gb HD
Random ODD
I believe the PSU was a Rosewill 500w
