Generic AMD 64 3500+
1 gig
160 gig HD
DVD burner
nVidia GeForce 6800 GT 256 meg
Windows XP Pro
Sharing 21" Hitachi monitor

Latest game machine.  Splurged on it to play Doom3 and Half-Life 2.  Also got a Z-board keyboard and a Nostromo N52 game keypad.

3DMarks 2001: 20178
3DMarks 2003: 11068

Christed Mar 2004

Dell P4/2.8 GHz
512 meg
80 gig HD
Windows XP Pro
18" flat-screen LCD panel monitor

This is my work machine.  Actually, JCI's work machine that I'm using for web development.

Normally, I wouldn't have gotten an LCD monitor, but the way Dell priced it, it was only about $100 more than a 21" monitor, which would have had a similar viewing size.   If we could have gotten the machine without a monitor I think I could have saved $300-400.  But my dad really likes his LCD panel so he was willing for the company to spend the money for me.  I think his problem with the monitor prior to his flat panel was that his office is lit by fluorescent lights.

The Windows task monitor says that this machine has two CPUs.  But that's not what we ordered.  And opening it up, it sure looks to me like there's only one.  So I suspect Intel's "hyperthreading technology" might be very similar to two CPUs in one package.  That sounds like something Intel's marketing staff would come up with.

MightyGigger Jan 2001

Dell P3/1 GHz
256 meg
60 gig HD
CD-ROM burner
GeForce2 Ultra 64 meg
Compaq IJ900 inkjet printer
Windows ME
21" Hitachi monitor

Not much else special about this system, right now.  It's basically my development machine and game machine.  I'm trying to keep it as free of extraneous software as possible, to keep it stable.  Yes, I know everyone complains about Win ME.  But it hasn't appeared to be a problem, so far.

Running Homeseer X-10 and webcam software.  07/MAR/04 - This machine isn't on much, anymore.  Another of the hard disks has become flakey.  Also, it's just very, very noisy.  So now I only fire it up to run the scanner.
