No one that dumb would even know how to find OCN let alone even go on it!
You know i had this computer since 99(from what i can remember), but i didn't actually start using it until early 2000. When i first bought this computer, it came with a integrated sound chip, integrated graphics 810/828 graphics controller, 64 ram stick, and a 90watts PSU. & Windows 98SE. I didn't start to upgrade until early 2003, and no i am not lying. I bought a DVD Combo Drive & a 128memory Stick from gateway in early 2003.
After that, couple weeks into 2003 i started to buy pc games. My first game i bought was Urban Chaos( GTA Killer ) from ebgames for 2.99, and then i bought like 20 more pc games. The reason i never looked into buying any video cards, well very simple: I DIDN'T EVEN KNOW WHAT A GPU/VIDEO CARD WAS
at that time, and no i am not lying. So i was using my integrated graphics for every game i own. Couple days later, i went over to the intel site and downloaded the lastest driver for my integrated chip. This help me play some of the games which i own.
So 2004 comes by, still didn't buy anything for my computer.
Early 2005, i finally found out what a Video card was and bought this one:
After buying this well i could play games better. GTA III was my first test, but it didn't fare too well, getting like 15fps. So i went to the intel site, download the intel application accelerator, use the 4.3 cataylst diamond drivers. And i got over 50fps playing GTA III. etc.
Anyways, early 2006, i bought the 9250. Early 2007, i bought the FX5200, FX5500, and the Geforce 6200 ( BFG ) and EVGA. Only one that work perfectly was the FX5500. I never thought about upgrading my PSU until mid 2007 and you know what i bought a 300PSU and i couldn't fit in my tower. So i have been using the 90watts PSU since 2000 and it still works perfectly.
2008, i upgraded from win98se to xp home edition, and i bought a soundcard, 512megs of ram, dvd writer, 2400 HD PRO, and highspeed USB port. And soon i plan to buy this:
The bottom line = I never thought about buying a more powerful computer until late last year. No lie.
I'm not like other people, i mean i am happy with what i have been using with over the years. When i buy my secondary computer, i will make better choices.
