??? - Cyrix 486DX2 for a little while, then AMD Am486DX4 (too young to remember, possibly around 1996)
1998 - Intel Pentium MMX 200MHz
1999 - Intel Celeron 400MHz s370 (kept it for years)
2005 - Intel Celeron D341 2.93GHz (what a difference!)
2007 - Intel Core 2 Duo E6550
2015 - AMD Athlon X4 860k

All of these bought new. The E6550 has since been upgraded to a Q6600 and then to a modded Xeon E5450, both bought used relatively recently.

Not too many, most of my CPUs were cheap second hand deals. 🤣
Still:
2001 - AMD Athlon Thunderbird 1200C (still running fine)
2005 - AMD Athlon 64 3000+ (Venice, s939)
2011 - AMD Phenom II X4 955 BE (C3 stepping that ran at 4GHz at stock voltage)
2014 - AMD Sempron X4 3850 (always wanted an AM1 machine for the collection)
2015 - Intel Core i5 4690S (main rig at the moment)
2017 - Intel Core i3 6100 (internet machine for the parents, had to be Skylake because they still need Windows 7)

- i486DX4 100Mhz
- Pentium MMX 166Mhz
- Pentium II 233Mhz
- Pentium II 350Mhz

1999: Intel Pentium III 650E
2003: AMD Athlon XP 3200+
2007: Intel Core 2 Quad Q6600
2008: Intel Core 2 Duo E8400
2014: Intel Atom Z3735G

Around 2006 I also built as new, a system based on a Socket 754 AMD Sempron 3000+ and later upgraded to an AMD Athlon 64 3200+, but whilst bought "new" it was comparitively older tech and built on the cheap as a cheap HTPC system.

^Mega points for sticking with AMD all those years. I jumped ship when my 6400+ was stuttering like crazy in S.T.A.L.K.E.R and Crysis with a brand new and expensive 8800GTX, and AMD's quad core parts kept getting delayed.

A lot of you guys are crazy, buying a new CPU ever year or sometimes 2-3 times a year. Crazy crazy. This is my list:

1995 - Intel Pentium P54C 100MHz (came with the Packard Bell system with Windows 95)
1999 - Intel Pentium II 350MHz (Windows 98)
2002 - AMD Athlon XP 1800+ 1.53GHz "Palomino" (first Window XP system)
2005 - Intel Pentium M 2.1GHz (came with my Dell Inspiron XPS Gen 2 laptop I got while being in the Army)
2009 - Intel Core 2 Duo 2.53GHz (built my mom a Windows Vista PC and it ran perfectly - no bad-mouthing Vista!)
2010 - Intel Core i7-860 2.8GHz "Lynnfield" (my first real gaming rig, with dual GTX 480s in SLI)
2015 - Intel Core i7-6700K 4.2GHz "Skylake" (paired with a GTX 980ti)

For the record, that Core 2 Duo Vista system ran perfectly all the way until Vista was forcefully shut down by IE being out of date, Chrome being out of date, etc. That CPU went into a newer system that now runs Windows 10 and I sold it to my best friend. Works perfectly fine for him.

The i7-860 STILL works like a beast. My mother is now using it for her computer and the rest of the family there while I have my 6700K.

Of course, that list doesn't cover the new CPUs I've purchased this past year for retro systems, that includes a Katmai 600MHz Pentium III and a Barton 2.1 GHz Athlon XP 3200+.

i rather die than use Intel in my main rig. There is nothing wrong with their processors (except Netburst), i just cant stand the way they handle things (demands, monopoly, prices, etc)

dont forget that we have i3 with 4 cores, i5 with 6 cores, i7 with 6 cores/12threads, i9, etc because Ryzen. If it wasnt for Ryzen, Intel could still selling i7s with 4cores/8threads like high end at crazy prices...

I'm only listing ones I personally owned and used when they were still new. I had a Vic 20 and my first PC was a handed down 286 but they were my fathers and I didn't start using them until I was old enough.

The first 3 all used the same case, first was a family PC.
1992 - 486DX 33 (Keydata brand, family PC but I lived on it virtually 24/7, my father paid many thousand for this)
1996 - Pentium 133
97-98 - AMD K6-2 350
2000~ - Athlon 800 (thunderbird I believe, I still have the processor). First processor I paid for myself, ahh the good old burger flipping days.

In college I used laptops
2002 - P4 Northwood 2.2 ghz (Alienware Area 51 Cyborg Green --- Biggest waste of money in my life). Ran Morrowind very nicely though 😎
2004 - AMD Turion ???? (HP laptop). I used this all the way up until 2010. Was too busy for computers.

Back to desktops:
2010 - AMD Phenom II X4 955BE
2014 - AMD FX 4350

These don't include the family computer when i was growing up (only computers that were my own). I remember using my 486 into early 2000 to browse the internet and play some modern games (like Diablo battlenet on dialup)

1998 - 386DX40
1999 - Compaq 486DX2-66
2000 - Celeron 633
2001 - Pentium 4 1.6GHz
2004 - Athlon XP 2500+
2006 - Athlon64 X2 3800+
2009 - Phenom II X4 925
2016 - Core i5 6600k

If I remember correctly:

Desktop processors:

1993 - AMD 486SX-40
1995 - Cyrix 486DX-33
1996 - AMD 486DX4-100
1997 - Cyrix 6x86 P150+
1998 - Cyrix 6x86MX PR200
1999 - Celeron 300A (@450MHz)
2000 - Pentium III 600E (Socket 370)
2002 - Athlon XP 1600+ (Palomino)
2003 - Athlon XP 2600+ (Barton)
2005 - Athlon 64 3200+ (Socket 939)
2007 - Core 2 Duo E6400
2008 - Core 2 Duo E8400
2011 - Core i5 2500K
2014 - Core i5 4690K (in my current PC)

Interesting trivia: I had several models of 486 processors, but never had the most "classic" one, the DX2-66. Also, I never had an actual Pentium (P54, P55), instead I blindly bought into the Cyrix 6x86 hype.

Mobile processors:

2005 - Mobile Pentium 4 HT 3.06 (a little furnace, from a Toshiba Satellite A75 whose fan sounded like a jet taking off)
2008 - Core 2 Duo P7350 (from a late 2008 Macbook)

Yeah, I've only owned two laptops in my entire life, the newest one being a late 2008 Macbook. I just find them uncomfortable to use for extended periods so I don't feel compelled to buy one, instead relying on the ones I get from my work.

around 1992 - 286 @16mhz - if I recall correctly. Huge AT case with power switch on the side, "Casper" color VGA monitor;
>>>
1993 - 386 @16mhz - in compact Escom enclosure. Same monitor.
>>>
1994 - 486 SX 33 - IBM PS/1 machine that I can't find anywhere. No photos, no model number - it must have been some odd model. Later added Aztech 4x CD-ROM and some Highscreen digital CRT with built-in speakers. Had no use for them as I never had a sound card.

1996/7 - Pentium 133 with 32mb of RAM. My father's obsolete office computer that he got uprgaded to P2 266

Newer ones I consider pretty modern stuff.
