2)- To enter, either post a pic of your current setup or list the specs of your first machine to the best of your knowledge (I can barely remember the first computer I had besides that it was a 486DX2). This is so people without a camera can enter as well.

oh my.

Well it was a A7N8X board or something along those lines
with a AMD Anthlon XP+ 1800
A whopping 512MB of ram,
20GB of diskspace,
Floppy drive bay
128MB Radeon AGP

my first PC that was mines,

the other pc that we shared was a Pentium 3 with MS98

I'll do what I can...........Athlon 650, 64MB of ram , Abit mobo, Riva TNT, 40GB HDD Maxtor? 450 watt PSU? Some creamy white/peach color case. tongue.gif, 56k modem NO IDEA what brand. Oh and a JIGGAWATTZILLION AOL discs............though I was a Juno/Netzero customer before SBC.



VERY slightly off topic but about the AOL discs, I ACTUALLY found a use for them!!!!! At my age at them time (14) I really liked Monster Rancher and thought it was awesome so I bought the PSX game and in it there was an option to read a given disc and unlock a monster. I LITERALLY spent my entire Christmas vacation getting discs (All ISP, all music, all dvds, ANYTHING burned) from all of my neighbors (apartment complex for a total of 20 units), all of my friends, and family , and had over 2k discs sitting in my living room and I would read and try to unlock that damn Phoenix.


What a wasted Christmas that was.........NOT!!! I got three phoenixes. tongue.gif Man it was fun to be young.



My apologies for the side rant to all who read it. biggrin.gif

First system was a Hp a6000n w/ upgrades only to the RAM, video card, and HDD. My first REAL rig is my sig rig. Will never buy a pre-built ever again in my life(well, Macs are an exception rolleyes.gif). It was a 11th b-day present so at the time, it was amazing to just have my own personal computer to use and NOT share biggrin.gif

-AMD Athlon x2 4200
-Asus M2N68-LA
-4GB DDR2 800
-BFG 9500GT
-Generic 300w PSU
-Seagate 400GB 7200RPM(that I still use today for storage tongue.gif)

It actually ran everything I wanted it to at the time(and early-mid 2011 before my DIY rig too!). MW2 at high @1280x1024, CnC(Generals-Kane's Wrath at same settings too, and POTCO.

Thanks for this awesome opportunity! My older brother could definitely benefit from this. biggrin.gif

This is awesome, would be cool to experiment with/give to a friend with an older rig.

I'll do both as I don't have a good up to date photo and the camera is dead.
EDIT: No photos of the current rig, only changed to a single 7950 from dual 6850's.

The rig in my case, so many cables as I have red cathodes that are sound activated, it's a bit cleaner since then seeing as I've got a single card. As for the generic cables i had to put up with what I could get locally.

The RAM clearance, kind of happy I got Samsung RAM over G-Skills.

The mammoth Thermalright SB-E, the securing mechanism looked so impressive that I was happy to pick up the board/CPU by the cooler and it didn't move at all.

First rig that I can remember was a P4 @ 3Ghz running with 1GB of RAM across 4 sticks, onboard VGA i think and stock cooling. We got it cheap from a bulk place in Sydney.. (our computerman found it) and about 3 years later we found out that it was a ghost PC running servers for virus' and such I believe or something. We went from windows 98 to windows XP in a flash when we found that

First rig was built from thrown away computers in my apt. building. I have no clue how I managed to get anything to work thinking back considering I didn't know about compatibility or support or anything. If it fit, it worked I though.
120mhz CPU
8mb Ram (upgraded to 32mb later)
no clue the IGP
1.17gb hdd. I remember not having anything besides a few songs saved, and I could only DL a single movie at a time. So I'd DL a movie, watch it, delete, then DL another. Memories. I then moved up to my brothers crashing IBM. I had that one a while. IBM Netvista 2257-72U. I don't think I'll ever forget that model number. Put 4 CPU's in that thing. And played CR on it many nights.

So yea, I'm in for this. Could give one each to my bro and sis, gonna try building them computers. Can't see how people can live without a computer in this day and age.

Good luck to all. and Thanks OP for being so generous biggrin.gif

4 CPU's at once or? and what is the story with "Not forgetting the model number"?
