YEAH! Old Skool! :(
Hey your computer is like mine! Old,slow,playing FPS at 8 fps,almost the same size of Hard drive as me.

Why did you put Mghz? is it in MHz or GHz?

My computer has 0 KB of L2 cashe and 16 KB of L1 cashe :cry:

Somehow I don't think he could run an OS let alone get on the internet with 1.3 Megahertz. And only 16kb in the LI cache? ouch
When computers were that slow they ran DOS in black and white colors. I think he meant 1.3 GHz not 1.3 MHz.

The cashe is low and I tried to run Grand Theft Auto Vice City on this computer! I guess what I't said "You don't have enough VRAM to run this game". Could you run GTA VC on a 32 MB of RAM and 266 MHz computer? 8)

You might be able to actually RUN the program. I tried to run UT2004 with a 1 GHz Celeron; 128MB of RAM slower than 100 MHz, and 8MB integrated graphics. I had to turn all the options to the lowest and turn off all the optional’s to get it to go a 15fps lol

I can play 3d games but at a high price. Unreal tournament 1 (1999) runs at 15 fps at the settings at the lowest. It takes 2 minutes to get in the menu and 20 seconds to load a level. Games like Simcity 3000 and The sims run fine on my computer.

I can also play PS1 games on my computer at normal frame rates (depends what game) at low graphics.

I would have gone for the dual core Athlon 64 4800+. Seems a little bit slower now, but in the end it'll be faster. Anyway, that PC must have cost at least $6000, if not more

Whoops, yeah I meant Ghz....never made that mistake before! :roll:
It's really time for a new system, looking over Redjag's site and sorta building in my minds eye, something along these sorta lines.

Athlon 64 3000
Nforce4 SLi
600W powersupply
512 Mb DDR400 RAM
160 GB S-ATA HDD, with 8mb cache.
And some sorta fairly meat and potatoes graphics card, maybe a geForce 6600 or something similar (suggestions?).

Essentially a base to build on in the future (I draw your attention to the SLi chipset and 600 watt powersupply), and costing in the region of about £600, something that'll handle most games relased in the last couple of years if I don't mind playing them at lo9ish) settings. But I'm not a big tech head, this look worth my money to any of you guys?

I'd say for that set up (even with SLI) 600W is a little overkill. If you had 4 DVD burners, 5 HDD’s, two 7800's in SLI as well as an Intel with the rest of the slots, now that’s a different story. I'd say you'd be fine with a 350W+. Other than that it looks great. You might want to buy a 3200 Athlon 64 or more though because it's not that much more expensive.

Gives me room to breath if I want to install two 6800's or even, if I win the lottery (heh), two 7800's , and it's surprisingly inexpensive. Besides, the company I'm looking at will only supply an SLi system with either a 480 Watt or a 600 watt power supply.

Nice hard drive storage you got, gotta love those raptor drives :D. All it needs is a next gen video card and athleast an A64 3400 and still good for a year or 3-5 (depending on what you use it for)

I don't really need a good GC card, I have my PS2 for that and don't really get into many PC titles,
I use my mirrored array for my Movie/Music/Photo libraries. they get quite large and with the mirror it provides a decent failsafe against dataloss

The raptors are for my OS & App's with the 2Gig of RAm coupled with the Raptors it runs beautifully, I run Win2k3 Server and it is great to work with, I have very few problems!!!

I need high ram & fast disk access cause I use VMWARE GSX server to run Linux/Window versions for learning my MCSE & Linux programs, plus working remotley for work.

I plan to upgrade to a Athlon 64 soon, but im lazy I can't be bothered spending a couple of hours upgrading it, plus the 2800 is running fine, with 2GB of Ram I very rarley have a problem with bottlnecks.

How can you have a 30 inch screen? that's as big as my T.V or is it a T.V and your using it for your computer?

No its a flat panel monitor. You can get even bigger ones if you have the cash.

Are you joking? You call a 30" T.V screen small? And where can you get a 30"+ Computer monitor from anyway? I've never seen one In my life!

I have a Dell Dimension 8200.
-2.0 ghz pentium 4
-256 mb ram
-40 gb hdd
-cd burner

Next time around, probably this fall, I am going to build one myself. I have to keep it relatively inexpensive, so I can afford a nice tv for my PS3 next year. So I'm afraid no 7800gtx :( I'll most likely have to "settle" for a x850pro, they have those for $300 on newegg, by the way.

Just go to your local computer store, most small places custom build computers, but you have to know what you want to put in it.

I custom built my comp around 2 years ago.

I have a Thermaltake Xaser III Case (Black)
Athlon XP 2.4GHz
1GB RAM
128 MB ATI Radeon 9800 Pro
120 GB HD
DVD Burner
9 Case Fans
Blue Cathod Light
Plexiglass side panel

I had to cut costs somewhere so I am still using my old monitor from my first ever system. Its a 17 inch monitor but it still works fine so why replace it I guess.
