I built mine at the beginning of the year:

CPU: AMD 2800+ overclocked to 3000+
Mainboard: Gigabyte GA7N-400-pro2
Ram: 1 gig DDR @ 400 mhz in dual channel
Video: Radeon 9600 LE, 256 DDR 2 ram
HDD: 2 x 120 gig @ 7200rpm in RAID array
Moniter: 19" CRT
Sound: Yamahar DS1 card, 4.1 speakers (but i much prefer headphones)

digital TV card
gigabit ethernet
52x32x52c Cd burner
16x dvd reader
zip drive

i think that's it, i'd like to get a real 3000+ proccessor, or whatever is the latest 32 bit AMD processor, but i won't do that for a while, especially since i don't have a job, and i have exams and stuff.
I will buy a dvd burner soon though, but apart from that, i'm happy with my system, a graphics card upgrade could happen next year though, but i'll see.

Even though it's new, I have no idea what my motherboard is... other than that,

Intel P4 3.0 GHz with hyperthreading (The store apparently put a 3.2 in there, but Windows reports a 3.0 and a 2.99).
512 RAM
80 GB Harddrive
Radeon 9200 SE
LG CD-RW 52/32/52
Win XP, no service packs.

The laptop is much older:
Intel Celeron 300 MHz (or thereabouts, can't remember the exact figure offhand)
128 MB RAM
6 GB Harddrive
An unlabelled CD ROM drive
MandrakeLinux 9.0 , default kernel, glibc... soon to be switching to something newer. I can't update glibc without problems, and I can't update my kernel or install Firefox without a newer glibc...

Beneath the US Government sticker, one can read the label, Dell. It gets worse from there. It's a latitude with a attitude, and luckily I can administer justice when it needs it!

Newest box I just bought (I remember most of the stats), this one's for work though , but I've got it at home right now installing software and benchmarking, it's a beast.

BoxxTech Integrated system, Full Tower case, 550W P/S
Dual Opteron 250's
IWill dk8n NForce NUMA motherboard
4 GIG Low Latency Registered DDR400
Adaptec 2200S 64-bit PCI SCSI Raid Controller
2x73 Gig 15,000 rpm U320 SCSI drives (RAID 0 - 146 GB)
Raidcore 64bit pci SATA raid controller
5x250 gig 10,000 rpm SATA Drives RAID 5 (1 TB)
ATI FireGL X3 Graphics Card
2 x NEC FP2141SB 22" Displays
Motherboard Gigabit ethernet
Soundblaster Audigy
Cheap speakers
Logitech cordless rechargeable Mouse/KB combo

Windows XP Pro, Windows 64 going on this weekend, probably Suse's 64 bit version of Linux in the near future.

I've got a couple other dual processor boxes at work (dual XEON-2.5's), fastest system I've got at home is an Athlon XP 2400 (liquid cooled overclocked) with 1Gig DDR400, 500 Gig HDD, BFG Geforce 6800 GT OC, 19" LCD, 15" LCD, Audigy, Monsoon speakers, Logitech rechargeable cordless combo, it's nice but underwhelming after playing with the opteon system.

I am no comp'wizzie so I will only post what I know:
Geforce 2 MX-400
256 RAM
17" monitor
Plextor CD burner
Win 98

Yes it's pretty old but played Doom 3 on it so it's a legendary system for me. Also I have Cable Modem wich is pretty good for me. I think it's time to upgrade tough. [img]tongue.gif[/img] What do you think?
