    Default Computers!

    What kind of computer do you use? What operating system? What Web browser?

    one of my pcs is winxp pro, athlon 1900+, 512 pc2100, etc etc. my laptop is 600mhz, runs fedora core rawhide. my computer at work runs fedora core rawhide as well, but i dont' remember it's stats (1.7ghz, i think). i use firefox on all of them (although i'll sometimes use epiphany on the laptop).

    oh, both the laptop and the desktop also have zeta beos on 'em, but i rarely boot into them.

    amd athlon xp 2400+ running stock because the multiplier is locked
    1024 mb ddr ram
    sapphire radeon 9800 pro 128mb
    nForce2 motherboard

    i put in a new northbridge fan after the stock pooped out, much to my dissatisfaction. northbridge cooling, i found, lowers system temperature greatly. put in a custom fanjob on the side window before i went to college. pictures upon request i guess.

    I'm picking a new machine next week from Florida. She bites. Once, if ever, I finish assembling her that is.

    Mobo - GIGABYTE GA-8KNXP Ultra-64 mobo. It's a mobo chiefly for servers with a U320 card on board for SCSI drive. I'm still not settled on that since it's retailed at over 400$. But I was looking around at either PCI-X boards or mobos who carry U320 card and found no better solutions. Any suggestions?

    Drive - Seagate 37gig 15 000 rpm SCSI drive for boot. And a 250WD 8mbit cache drive for storage on top of that.

    CPU - 3.2ghz P4 of the 478 socket 1mb with H/T. Couldn't find a board with U320 card for AMD technology. And for once that the AMDs actually stopped being so insanely fucking hot--most clock at like 35celcius wow! It's a pity because I spent a lot of time debating the benifits of a HT vs amd64 and now all my efforts are put to waste by the manufacturer who chooses not to offer me but one option.

    Video card - 256mb x600 ATI. I was gonna go for 9600pro but the x600 dropped so much in price lately that I figured I might as well grab it.

    Sound card- I'm really clueless about sound cards. I'm guessing a standard sound blaster live will do. Though perhaps I should consider something more 'exotic' since I listen to a lot of music after all.

    Monitor - Any 19" LCD with a response rate of under 15 (preferably a 12) is good. And I can always plug a couple of my good ol' CRTs for gaming if it comes to that.

    The rest of the comp is pretty much standard.

    As for the comps that I currently have, I won't bother with the old ones. But here's my Vaio - http://www.ciao.co.uk/Sony_VAIO_GRT9...643564/TabId/4


    Oh yeah and i'm switching between win2000 and XP for the OS and Opera for the browsers. Fuck firefox.

    Yes, yes, all this means that I have one huuuuuge penis that I want to show off.
