What was your first processor...? - Page 2

post #11 of 631
First custom one was an E8500 I was given,
First computer I remember was a 3.0GHz P4 with no HT.
Before that we had a Pentium III or maybe a Pentium II. I bought a Pentium II for $15 one time to see what the boards were like back then. It was also good for spare parts (RAM etc).

It was in the Apple Classic, like from the 1980s. I was born in 88 apparently we still had one laying around and it became my first computer.

Started with an old 120mhz CPU with 8mb Ram system... 1.14GB HDD was pretty sweet... Not really, this was when the 3800+ was golden... I then moved to a Pentium II 500mhz, then a 950mhz Celly, then a 933mhz Pent III. Those were all scrapped systems I recovered as my frist comps as we couldn't afford one in my family when I was young. I then bought my first real system, and I went with an AMD 5000+ Black Edition and was blown away at what a "real" computer felt like. Was quite impressive, that and my 4670 which was my first real GPU capable of playing more than flash games. Good times...

Now I'm on a Athlon II 635 and missing my 1090T. Though I'm lucky I never blew my mobo out with my 1090T at 3.6 on a 4+1 phase with no heatsink redface.gif (I knew nothing of motherboards back then, I figured, if the socket was the same, it would work, and "VRM? huh?" lol so newb)

Since your young and possibly new to building rigs, not sure, my advice is to really do a lot of research on what platform you want to go with and your upgrade path, as you want to get a very good quality mobo and PSU, you simply cannot cheap out on these components if you want a solid rig that will last and be able to take an OC. I went through a bunch of cheap $50 boards before I smartened up and bought something good. Though compared to some of the boards people on here have, my lowly M5A97 still seems cheap heh.

Good times...

My first was an IBM Aptiva. Came with 120Mhz Pentium and had ram specs in the single digit MB's! lol I maxed the ram out in it and believe it or not was running SLI Voodoo II cards in it and it was capable of playing Quake 2, Quake 3 Arena, and Unreal Tournament. The game I played the most on it was Worms Armageddon though, spent many all nighters playing that game! Also loved Warcraft 2!

My first mod box as well. Painted the inside red and also painted the psu shell I still have the motherboard from it and recently decided I should frame it and mount on my wall when I get time. The case was pretty neat for it's time, clicked the blue button and the face slowly slid down to reveal the drives. I also rocked an 19 inch Triniton CRT.

My first built pc I had a AMD Duron 1.8ghz Applebred overclocked to 2.0ghz, this was when the AMD 64 3200+ was the one to get back in the days. I then moved to the Opteron 165 to Q6600 to i5 2500K.

Yep, well... I guess most PC newbs must share mistakes 'cause I just recently purchased a motherboard. Only to read, and find out that it's VRM is 4+1. Never heard of that till researching! Hehe... Though, I think I'm going with the FX-6100 which I've been told can be OC'd well on that board. The board by the way is the AsRock 990FX Extreme 3.

First PC had a crappy 300mhz Celeron. My first custom build had a 939 Athlon 64 3200+ OC to 2.4ghz. Damn I loved that chip smile.gif
