Given OCN's demographic, I was surprised to see so many people posting 286, 386, 486 machines, or even earlier.

You should really force AA

The face on the 3dFX card looks like the face on the cover of Stalker SoC (or the other way around I guess).

First PC I owned and gamed on? Great thread.
Intel Pentium 100MHz way back in '96. I've owned a fully operational gaming machine since then. Old school PC builder gamer.

First computer I gamed on was a friends Amiga but I didn't own it. Another friend had a Vic 28, the one before the Commodore 64! 286 earliest PC I saw.

My first "Gaming PC" was actually a Commodore 64 (although I had a VIC 20 before even that! (That qualifies, doesn't it?).

If you want to be "technical" about it though, my first Gaming PC was a Compaq 386DX 20 with a massive 40MB HDD, and a whole 4MB of RAM.

Wolfenstien, anyone!?
