Mine's as follows:
  • Intel 8088 (8-bit!) (you're probably too young to have heard of this, Steve)
  • 4.7Mhz
  • 128Kb ram (I never knew what to do with all that memory over 64Kb Undecided)
  • CGA graphics with 16Kb ram
  • 10Mb hard disk
  • 5 1/4 floppy
  • 15 (4:3) CRT (IIRC)
Now that's a list to drool over Wink
OK, so I may not own this anymore, but that was my 1st.  Donated to me by some rich uncle or someone like that.

Inside. Got another TB or so of old drives just sat next to it, 320gigs etc, pointless things. Im using most of the space in that main pc and the media one as well. This is my media case, looks quite nice under the tv. It has a twin pvr tuner in it but no use here as no tv signal!

Dose anyone know what socket 939 AMD CPU's are still available? I want a dual core one but can't find any, as this socket seems to have died since i built the PC about 3 years ago!

I like! I wanted something like that, but originally i built mine up as a gaming PC and couldn't find any that could take full size graphics cards. Hardly ever played any games on it either Undecided
