Sitting behind my brand new puter, I know it's a shame but my 64 mb Pentium 300 had to make room for a Athlon 1200 w/256 megs 19 inch screen 32 mb Geforce2 GTS card 30 gigs of harddrive 52 speed cdrom 12x10x32 rewriter Damn life is good, buying a new puter is as good as buying a new weapon. Kuiper

Yea,I was thinking that CIVILIAN computers went obsolete in about a month with CIVILIAN standards.....If you want to humble yourself a little Kuiper just think that by military standards it was obsolete when you bought it. [:D]

I just got a new one myself Pentium 4 1.7 ghz/512 megs ram 19 inch viewsonic perfectflat 64mb Geforce3 80 gig HD cd/dvd drive 16x plextor cd burner sound blaster live It's sweet, nothing like paying $3000 for something that will only be worth $1000 in less than a year. These things devalue faster than anything else, but I like it!

And even sweeter I got my work to buy me a new notebook computer: Pentium 3 1 ghz/512 meg ram 15" UXGA screen (best there is for notebooks) 30 gig hd dvd drive 32 meg Geforce2 Go (3d gaming on the go) digital sound with dolby surround headphone (yeah, baby) Windows 2000 professional I use this baby to serve dedicated Counter-Strike games at home on my cable modem while I play on the Pentium 4 1.7 ghz. I also use this to watch DVD in airplanes and hotel rooms. Officially I use it to dial in to our mainframe to fix problems when I'm at home or out of town.

I thought you were going to claim a one-hole, 200 yd., five-shot group. I have a POS Compaq. 475 Athlon, 128 Mb RAM, 8 gig HD, Zip Drive, no DVD, 15" NEC MultiSync monitor from about 1995, Microsoft Ergo keyboard, Logitech mouse, scanner, HL-5 laser printer (B&W and hardly ever use it). I put out web sites and newsletters with it. I could spring for a DSL connection, but I get my ISP paid for by one of my web site clients. It works for me. But what you have is pretty spiffy. I think computers are going to go modular and be readily upgradable real soon.

Geez and I though I was on top of the technology giant. [:o)] My fastest desktop computer at home is a Dell Pentium Pro 200 with 64MB of RAM. [:(] I'll gladly take any of what you all consider "old" and use it upgrade my system at home. [:D]

My dad still uses a 166MHz.

AMD's soon releasing a motherboard that handles dual Athlon processors. Can you imagine TWO 1200mhz processors, along with say 512mb of RAM?
Link Posted: 6/7/2001 10:09:13 AM EDT
Woh that's some hardware.

I just got: The new Shotgun News The new SWAT magazine That gives me a good 2 hours of sit-on-the-can-until-I-can't-feel-my-legs-anymore quality reading.

Did you need a special permit for that assault computer?

"Athlon 1200 w/256 megs 19 inch screen 32 mb Geforce2 GTS card 30 gigs of harddrive 52 speed cdrom 12x10x32 rewriter" Keep one of your rifles propped in the doorway where you keep that thing. Never know when you might find it "self aware" one morning, and attempting to take over your house!
