Your computer specs.
« on: February 17, 2003, 06:59:09 AM »
I think this should go here, I don't see where else it would fit.

Anyway, just post the specifications on your computer, any peripherals you want to add about your computer, your operating system, etc.

Here's mine:

Computer type:  Apple G4 iMac
Monitor: 15" Apple Flat Panel LCD Display (built in)
Processor: 800MHz PowerPC G4
Hard Drive:  60GB
Memory:  512MB SDRAM
Operating System: Mac OS X (10.2.4)/Mac OS 9.2
Disc Bay:  Apple SuperDrive (CD-RW/DVD-R)
Internet connection speed:  Cable
Screen resolution:  1024x768
Peripherals:

Apple Pro Speakers
Apple Pro Keyboard
WACOM Graphire 2 tablet (used also as mouse)
Hewlitt Packard Printer (I don't remember what kind, it's upstairs)
Fujifilm FinePix Digital Camera

Well, that's mine.  I don't want this turning into a flame war, or "My computer is better than your's" topic.
I'm a Mac boy.

You know this is a poll post, that is disapproved of in the forums.

Mine's a Compaq model.

I don't see how it's a poll.  There are no choices.  And it shouldn't result in a flame war.

It is a poll because you are polling for our computer specs.  But it shouldn't result in a flame war, so who knows what will happen.   Now, is that 800mhz a dual proc unit or not?   And if so, do you have problems with some software not knowing that?

It is a poll, but I'm letting it go to illustrate something to you guys.  See, a computer has to be VERY FAST to accomodate top games today, resulting in a cost upwords of $1000, all to do pretty much the same things you can do in a $200 game console where the games can be optimized for the hardware.  When you can't count on the hardware in a machine, you have to shoot for the lowest common denominator to get sales.  Historically, even passable console games outsell GREAT PC games, and that's exactly the reason.

True enough Rick, but a lot of us don't build uber powerful computers to only play games, a lot of us do it because it is our hobby. I mean is there any real benefit for the effort put out to build a computer? Other than it is fun, I am not getting anything more. I could buy a OEM PC for probablly half the price I am building my current rig, and mod that case if I want to. It is really become a game in itself, case modding OCing, showing it off at LAN parties, etc. It is just a fun little hobby a lot of us have gotten into, and although most consoles are thousands of times better deals, they don't offer the same flexibility. I would say I spend almost as much time on the computer games as I do on console games, but that is just one category of it. I spend many more hours on the internet, and many hours messing with the parts in my PC to grab a little more juice from it. Anyway, enough of my rambling, where are the rest of your rigs?

I've got a P3 600 MHz
256 MB RAM
7500 RPM Maxtor 40GB HDD
Geforce 2 MX 400 64 MB
not sure what the rest is composed of but
Speakers: My $400 Panasonic Stereo with Dual 6" Subwoofers, 450watts max power, makes Quake 3 BANG.  =-)

I have a question for anyone with tech knowledge.  My tech here at work said that I shouldn't buy a new motherboard/CPU/RAM combo to upgrade my computer.  He said I would save money by just going to Dell, HP, or Gateway to buy a brand new computer, which I don't want to do.  Out of all the ones I've seen built, you can't add much software to them before they start to crawl with lag.  So, should I spend $400 to upgrade the motherboard/CPU/RAM on my PC, or just spend a few hundred more and get a whole new PC?

Also, my other speakers blew out (hence the stereo hook up), and I was wondering why.  I live by an Air Port, and was wondering if I needed shielded connectors because of the RADAR.  Sorry this is so long.
I think, therefore I wish.  I wish, therefore I'll never get.          

Life is long and hard, so rock out with your cock out.

You could probablly save a little bit of money from a major distributer, but they charge mucho money for upgrades. If you are going to buy your own and build, do your shopping around. Look at pricewatch or pricegrabber find a site with service and good shipping and buy from them.

What mine has:

CPU: AMD Athalon Thunderbird 1GHz
Memory: 256 MB SDRAM
HDD: Maxtor 30GB HDD, Maxtor 40GB HDD
CD-ROM: 8x8x32 CD-RW
Video: nVidia GeForce4 MX440 64MB DDR memory
Sound: Philips Rhythmic Edge sound board

Don't go with a major distributor, as it's much harder to upgrade and repair them in some cases.  I browse through pricewatch.com for good deals on parts, and I'd recommend them if you're looking for parts for good prices.  You could find a good CPU/Motherboard combo there, even complete PC deals.

I'm something of an exception to that rule though.  My computer specs are fairly high, and I am capable of playing any game out right now.  I really only have a few games I actually play on my PC though.  I am a console gamer, and proud of it.  I keep a tuned PC around, so that I can have my bragging rights, and when I go to do something, it doesn't take 3 hours to do it.  I just like to tweak my computer is all.  I like tweaking it more than playing games on it.  

The only PC games I have bought recently are PS2 ports actually.    (Silent Hill 2, and Shadow of Destiny)  The next game I want on my PC actually has really low system requirements too....  (Master of Orion III)

-AMD Athlon XP 1800+ (effectively 1900+)
-256MB DDR RAM, Crucial Micron (@141)- I really should upgrade this...
-Epox 8-HKA+ motherboard (Forget exact model number, truth be told)
-80GB 7200rpm IBM HDD
-Soundblaster Live!
-Altec Lansing ACS-48 Speakers
-KDS RAD-5 15" LCD

-Lite-On 40(W)/12(RW)/48x CD-RW
-Lite-On 16x DVD-ROM
-Windows XP Home
-300 Watt PSU
-Microsoft Intellimouse Optical

That's basically it I guess. Those Altec Lansings are the best value 2.1s ever(20Watts/channel, 40 Watts sub), it's a shame Altec stopped making them. (And that no company makes 2.1s with those kind of power ratings these days...)
