Thread: Diy Curiosity Question...

  1. #1
    How many here are operating on a machine they built themselves - and what are the specs?? Starting off, I've got a MSI MB, 1800 Athlon, 512 RAM, 200 Gigs, VIA 266 chipset, built about a year ago.

    This made me think I clicked on the wrong link. Doesn't this belong in the lounge?

    Just for kicks I'll give the specs of the one I'm on tonight: pentium 166, 4gb hdd, 64 mb ram

    I appreciate the classics

    Well, how about you give the specs? That's what this topic is about.

    Gigabyte MOBO with integrated LAN/Firewire/USB2.0/AC97 sound/RAID+SCSI/AGP 8x/Dual Bios
    Athlon XP 2200+
    512MB DDR 266Mhz RAM
    80GB Hard Drive
    32/12/32/16 CD-RW/DVD Combo
    Radeon 7200 (He refuses to upgrade that POS)
    Boston Acoustics 4.1 300W Speakers
    Sound Blaster Live
    Dell P780 Trinitron flat screen CRT
    A whole mess loud of fans, lights, and heat sinks.

    His computer is God.

    LOL, glad I'm not the only one. I bought a full tower, but I wasn't happy with the air flow. It had all these little dimples on the front plate, so I took a 1/8" bit and turned them all into holes. I've got four fans (five, with the CPU fan), Nvidia GeForce, Sound Blaster Live, TDK internal CD/RW, Sony DRU500A external DVD burner. Dell created a monster when the salesgal misled me into thinking I had off-site warranty for 2&3, when it was "parts only." By the time I had replaced all the parts, I thought "Hey, this isn't so hard." BTW, Jetje, where does your nick come from.
