On closer inspection, I've got a Dell Dimension 2300.

Does anybody know the specs on it? It's completely out-of-the-box.

I'm having a problem with my thinkpad though, since its so thin its fragile, and whenever I pick it up and move it or if you shake it a little bit or do anything to slightly move the top part then the screens LCD gets jumbled and distorted.. I dunno if its just because its old or its because its so damn thin that it picks up sensitivity like that..
I had a Thinkpad 600E and it did that. It's just a design flaw.

NoSub, do a Google on Sandra 2004. That will tell you all the specs of your little machine.

NEVER BUY AN ATI RADEON 9600/9550 SERIES CARD! THEY HAVE LOCKUP ISSUES WITH VIA CHIPSETS! BUY A 9800SE WITH 256-BIT MEMORY, ONE WITH 128-BIT MEMORY WILL PERFORM LIKE SHIT! ALSO, THE 9800SE CAN SOFTMOD INTO A FULL 9800 PRO 50% OF THE TIME!

I would advise you put a Sparkle, ThermalTake, or Aspire PSU in there STAT! Those generic ones have serious problems with high end video cards. If you want to put in better video, such as a Geforce 4 TI series, a Radeon 9550/9600, or a 9500/9700/9800/X800, you are going to need a good PSU. Hell, even a 5200 Ultra, 5600, 5700, 5800/5900/6800 from NVidia need a good PSU too. I have an Aspire 350w PSU. It is seriously a kick ass PSU.

As to saying that you would prefer a Rage 128 over a Radeon 7000, are you nuts?! The Radeon 7000 has three times the performance, not to mention kick ass drivers. The ATI Catalyst drivers are the best in the industry (Especially the new Beta 4.9's.)

This was hard cause I have 5 computers with different brands.

First is the one I use most which is my sony vaio I bought summer of last year. 2.8ghz 512mb ram 120hd 5200 graphics card.

Then I got my Custom build gaming computer which I built. amd 3400+ 1gig ram 120gig hd 9800pro.

After that theres the old PII I still have for what reason I dont know. It's a hp PII 333mhz 192mb ram 8gig hd.

Then last of all I have two servers which I run [email protected] on in my basement. Each have dual PIII 733mhz processors, 4gig ram on both, and 8x10gig hd. :smash:

It is a great computer for word processing and email and stupid ass forums. That is about it. Dont try to play doom 3 or NFS underground on it. You can not upgrade it because of the chipset. Im buying my 11 and 9 yr olds those for christmass probably.
