2GB RAM
128 OR 256MB Geforce 7900 GS GO Dual Heatsink (does run a bit hot and overheat maybe add some thermal paste to it) (still have the ATIX1400 to pass on) I forget what RAM specs it has, it was in early 2007 I believe when I ordered and put together this system over the next few months (first half of 2007).
17" screen

As you can see it's been a while since I've upgraded, and many games I run crash on me, some don't fully support this card.....
I think about getting a more portable / small notebook or netbook and projector, and separate system for high end stuff. Or winning? (yes)
We shall see =)

PS. If any mod knows how to undo the boxes my images appear to be shown in, feel free to correct it.

sorry I know this is a little bit off topic but I love the background on your desktop, what is it called?

From my cursory browsing of this thread, I think I might win the "Saddest PC" award :)

My current main x86 machine is a beige (literally) box with the following specs:

Dual Pentium III-S Tualatin 1.4ghz/512kb L2/133mhz fsb CPUs
1.2gb PC133 RAm
GeForce 9400GT 1gb PCI video card
20gb IDE boot drive, 40gb IDE storage drive, 500 and 300gb sata storage drives
DVD Burner
Running Windows XP Pro.

It runs decently, actually. EvE Online plays fine on it with maxed out graphics settings @ 1024x768 :)
At some point I'll have the money to build a newer machine...

Image

My other box is my NeXTstation Turbo Color Unix workstation that I still use daily.
It has a 33mhz Motorola 68040 CPU, 128mb ram, 2gb scsi hdd, and it runs NEXTSTEP 3.3 as its operating system. It was made in 1992. I really do use it every day.

Works great.

Well I usually rebuild every year, but this beast is 3 years old except the video card which I bought last year. With medical school and a newborn, I don't have the money or time anymore to continuously build... If you look closely you can see who I bought my case from :)
