Let me just baffle you guys with my ever upgrade project.
Case= Evergreen Bigtower AT (Upgraded it myself to ATX6 years old). Aopen 300 watts powersupply
Speakers= Pioneer Powerbass speaker, stolen from a miniset, hooked up to my pioneer VSX-804 4x70W cmos receiver/amp (handmedown), use connected through digital in on my minidisk deck.
Monitor= Sony CPD-E500 21'
Mouse= ms. intellimouse explorer 1.0a (prolly beta)
Joystick= ms. Sidewinder forcefeedback pro (old one)
Gamepad= ms. Sidewinder gamepad pro
Keyboard= ms. Natural keyboard Pro
Motherboard= Aopen AX 34 pro (Intel 815)
Processor= Intel PIV 1.7
Cooling= The one supplied with my processor (Intel)
Memory= 512 Texas Instruments, cas2, 133 (B grade, quite old)
Video= Gforce 3 Ti500
Primary-master ATA 100: WDC400AB 40Gig (5400)
Primary-slave ATA 100: WDC600AB 60Gig (5400)
Secondary-slave: Hitachi GD-2500 DVD drive
SCSI= Adaptec 2940AU PCI (Yes, there is an ISA version also)
ID0= Plextor PX-40TS cdrom (40x)
ID1= Plextor PX-W8220 CDrw (20x8x2)
Floppy= A mitsumi, still left from a 468-33DX
AGP / Gf3
PCI2/ SBlive! (CT4620) the 1st one
PCI3/ AVM ISDN-controller B1
PCI4/ 3com Etherlink 3C905C-TX
PCI5/ EMPTY SBlive digital out thingy
mouse + keyboard + gamepad
COM1: Smart Card Programmer: Real handy creating you're own coffee cards for school.
COM2: Realmagic IR thingy for remote control. Came with my dvd kit, sold the kit kept the remote for Winamp.
MIDIout: An MT-32, a real gem if u like old games. Requires VDMsound though, SBlive has no dos support, windows XP has timing issues. I wish I could keep my old Mobo.
Printer and stuff is on my dads PC, Dad's pc's are great for backups.
Running: WINXP-pro. Got some real old stuff here, but there's no need for replacement yet, I think it's better then average.. it's no l33t box, though I can overclock this babe to 2230MHz. It will get a bit hot then. I rather stick to 1.7 and let the thermo control fan slow down a bit.. It's real quiet.
My next buy would be a PIV 2.4 (northwood), if the price is right that is.
(Everyone should mention their next buy/upgrade in their specs post!)
