Default Only the best performance hardware

I just spunked 70 on 3Gb of DDR RAM for my shitty old PC and I'm feeling pretty erect about the imminent performance boost of my RIG.

Is anyone else as woefully old skool as me? I cringe at the money I used to spend to improve my 3dmarks

Not any more, but I do like your sig..... makes me feel all horny.

Current specs are an E2200 OC'ed to 3GHz, 4GB RAM and about 1TB of disk space. Might think about upgrading some time, but the wife doesn't seem to share my passion for all things PC related.

How many graphics cards can you fit in that thing? I was amused when I discovered those clever GFX boffins found a way to fleece people twice

could get 2 but I only use 1... an 8800GT. Plays all the games I play fine, so don't see the need for anything else just yet.

More interested in keeping the noise down as the 'puter lives in the living room, so got a nice case for it... this one to be exact

Last updated my PC in 2004 Currently running an Athlon 2.5@3.2, 1 gig ram, 120gb SATA, Rad9800Pro. Was good at the time. My laptop now pisses on it from a great height, though the 23in Widescreen makes it good for watching porn. And I have a beer fridge and a shit-hot stereo in the same room so do regain some man points.

Scariest thing is, my install of XP was put on in Sept 2004 and is still running, albeit slower than it should!

Mine hasn't been upgraded in years!

3.4 Northwood running at just shy of 4.0. 1 gig of Ram and a 6800gt, 200 gig hdd. All packed into a little shuttle I have sprayed matt black. Its sexy. I want a hoojum cubit though... http://www.hoojum.com/new/html/cubit5.htm

But if I went and spent a load of cash on it the misses wouldn't be best pleased. Also I am skint now after spending 360 on a sofa and coffe table. They were bargains though.
