[CRAPPY "I CANT AFFORD THE CUTTING EDGE STUFF" PC ALERT]

Gigabyte K8N Pro (sadly without dual channel support FOR SOME ODD REASON)
1gb (2 x 512) DDR400 OCZ Gold edition
AMD Athlon64 3200+ socket 754
XFX GeForce 6800 128mb Dual-DVI
Sound Blaster Audigy2 ZS
60gb IBM 7200rpm
120gb WD 7200rpm
160gb Seagate SATA 7200rpm
300gb Maxtor SATA 7200rpm 16mb cache
LiteOn 52x burner
Pioneer slot-load dvd-rom
-All in an old gutted Alienware case!

For the most part it runs pretty solid but im going to upgrade to a socket 939, which sucks because I will need a new CPU, and will upgrade to PCI-E, which sucks even more because I will have to get a new video card.

So....sucks for me. I need $850 for AMD 4000 90nm, BFG 7800gt OC dual-dvi, and Gigabyte K8NXP SLi. THEN I will need a new case.....and extra ram.....*sigh* being poor is so depressing.

It does alright, but the low amount of ram has hurt my performance at times in a few games. I was considering building an new pc instead of buying an PS3 but I decided on going with the PS3 and see if I cannot get a new HDTV with it.

Yeah......I hope your joking about that. You think that's a crappy computer? try my computer. 266 MHz, 128 MB RAM, ATI rage pro (8 MB), 40 GB HD, normal keyboard and mouse, old motherboard with 2 ISA slots and 3 PCI slots, Sound blaster card, and a old fan.

Well the reason I say it's crappy is because the CPU is bottlnecking the whole system, and an upgrade to socket 939 would improve it, but it would be reversed bottlenecked again because of the AGP video card. Thus, I would need to upgrade to socket939 CPU/mobo, get dual channel ram support, PCI-E videocard. By then though it still wont be good enough for the newest games that come out when I buy all this stuff.

Either way, there's not argument to the fact that my stuff isnt CUTTING EDGE. Im still using nforce3, 6800 128mb AGP, and no dual channel. One day I will have an awesome rig and be experiencing CryEngine2 games in all their glory!

You must have a lot of porn to fill that much HDD space.

Custom built by my stepfather. Nothing fancy, but back in early 2004 this machine would have cost you a lot more than what it did.

512MB DDR-SD RAM.
1.1 GHZ Processor

Not sure about anything else -_-

I got a new computer a few weeks back. Its an HP Pavillion

Pentium 4 at 3.0 ghz
1 gb RAM
200gb HDD

I can't remember what else it has, and I don't know what card it has in it. But it doesn't really matter, because I wasn't planning on using it as a gaming machine anyways.

I am a proud owner of a Pentium 4 Legend computer running @ 2.6 Ghz
2 x 256MB DDR-SD RAM
120 GB Seagate Harddrive (3 partitions)
ATI Radeon 9000 @ 128 MB

It was a top notch machine a few years back when a bought it. Had to save a lot of money but it was more than worth it. It still runs very smooth so I won’t need to be upgrading just yet.

I have a vaio ra920g, it's interesting how sony labels it as liquid cooling but when i open up the case it turns out it's just heat pipes.
