The computer I currently own is about 4 years old.
1.2 GHz Intel Celeron processor, 256 MB SDRAM (only after salvaging one 128MB stick from a friend's trashed computer), 40 GB HD, Generic HP CD burner, 17 inch monitor (again, salvaged from friend's trashed computer), 4 MB onboard graphics (disabled and replaced with a 64MB nVidia GeForce 2 PCI graphics card), onboard sound card with two shitty little speakers, 2 USB 1.0 ports.
Initial cost of PC: $900
Total amount of money spent on upgrades: $100
Current value of PC: probably less than $300

I really... REALLY hate HP. Next computer I get I'm going to build myself.

I got you all 0wn3d.

IBM PS/2 Model 50
286 10MHz processor
1MB RAM
20MB hard drive
MCA architecture

And yes, it still runs. I fired up the original Wing Commander on it about a month ago... choppy, but playable.

However, it actually has something "good" about it, which takes away from it's total suckitude. It came with an IBM M-type keyboard... quite possibly the best damn keyboard ever made.

Well yeah, I mean if you ever need to stop a bullet, beat an elephant to death or have a penchant for spilling shit in your keyboard that one will do. So what if it weighs more than most desks can handle?

:D

Dude, I'm impressed that you could get all that shit to fit in a Dell case. Who's the jackass that designed that stupid fucking butterfly case in the first place? You need two hands just to press the fucking buttons and two more to pull the fucker open.

Wing Commander owns all. That is all.
FreeSpace 2 > FreeSpace 1 > Wing Commander Series > Super StarFox > StarFox 64 > Shadow Squadron (Sega 32X)

All the space sims I played. I grew up with those things. That, Descent, and Sonic. OH, AND VIRTUA RACING DELUXE!

90's Gaming > All Gaming Eras

2002 > All years for gaming

2004 > All years for FPS titles

That's just my personal countdown.

The 90's owned, because everyone was ripping off of each other, WHILE innovating.

Wolf3D, then Doom. Then Descent, which was never a Doom clone, then marketed as one. It was a flight sim/80's action arcade game hybrid.

Then, you had the KING of all gun-totin FPS's: Duke Nukem 3D!

Strippers, hookers, and aliens, oh my!

The automatic pistol is almost as fun as the Doom shotgun, which as almost as fun as Descent's Plasma Cannon. That cannon shot so fast it made you swear you were piloting a Ferrari.

Damn, we need the 90's back. I'm gonna go build me a time machine!

Please explain how 3 pieces of consumer grade electronics makes you an audiophile.

I've seen you post repeatedly about how you're an audiophile, as if you're trying to convince everyone that you actually are.

Here's a tip... audiophiles actually use audiophile grade equipment because they know it sounds better.

Get out of consumer grade, and you'd know that.

You're telling an unemployed 16 year old to get out of consumer grade?!

Wow. Like I can afford that.

I am probobly going to buy a Rotel in the summer, and as for Paradigm, they are VERY high grade consumer.

In fact, they make a set a $3000 speakers my father and me were amazed with. The sound was so warm and balanced, it was unbelievable!

Such deep bass, tight midrange, and crisp treble, all coupled with crystal clear sound, to the point where all you truly heard was the music, and not a bit of anything else.

You have to admit, the Atoms are killer speakers for $180 a pair. I hate listening to MP3's on them, the experience is tainted. They expose all of the flaws in that format.

I'll keep the Santa Cruz because it's better for gaming than an M-Audio, IMO. It's 3D stereo enhancement kicks ass. It really gives me the edge I need in UT.
