Sheesh, I would love to have a desktop like that...

Sun, 15 Jul 2007, 14:02
im getting another 7600GT OC or i might get two 8600's and im getting either a 6000+ X2 or AMD's new WIP(Phenom) True QuadCore And im getting two 24" widescreens also And a bigger hard drive.
Sun, 15 Jul 2007, 16:23
Damn! thats a good desktop! Id have insane computers but i dont really have the money. Plus, i think that its a good thing for programmers computers not to be to crazy because if we have such amazing computers our programs may not run as well because the avarage person dosnt have 3 gigs of ram and cant handle what ours can.

Stuff... Yeah...

Firefox [Latest Version]

It's been modified so its dead quiet. Hardly a hum. Which is good at night. The mouse clicking is louder than the tower, heh.

Quit posting and try Google.

Notably, under the table is an accident waiting to happen. Plus I'm pretty big Naruto fan so I have 2 of the 6(?) head protectors <-- very cool!

Good man Instinct for not smoking, what ever you do, don't take up the habbit. I'm experienced enough to know that it's hard to quit. I quit smoking about 7 years ago, and it can take up to 15 years to clear out of your system completely. I used to be quite slim before and during when I smoked, when I gave up I became extremely overweight. That's what happens when you quit smoking on willpower alone.
Mon, 16 Jul 2007, 15:38
haha I wish! It's a logitech dual action.

Damn, you guys have nice setups.

File Server:
- Intel Pentium III 933Mhz (Coppermine core, 133Mhz FSB)
- 1024MiB SDRAM
- MSI-6198 Mainboard
- 8Mib Trident Blade 3D Video Card
- Seagate Barracuda 7200.7 40GB IDE Hard Disk
- Western Digital Caviar 40GB IDE Hard Disk
- Windows XP Home Edition
I've just ordered a new 250GB hard disk and a SATA controller for this computer, so soon it'll have much more storage. At that point, I'll also install Debian instead of WinXP.

- Apple iBook G4 (1.33GHz)
- 768MiB DDR RAM
- 40GB Hard Disk
- Airport Extreme card, DVD Combo drive, etc.
This computer isn't technically mine (as in, I don't own it), but the difference is fairly minor, since nobody else ever uses it.

I'll be posting pics of my bedroom (read: computing haven) later on, when I can be bothered. Also, these are just the computers in my bedroom. Another 3 are running somewhere in the house, and probably 2 more are in parts.
