    Right now I have an Athlon 700MHz overclocked to 950, when I get paid the $700 I'm owed and pay off my speeding ticket, I'm getting an Athlon XP 1900 (1.6GHz), which I'll also overclock as high as possible.

    I built mine about a year ago (so it's not so hot). However since I no longer game it serves me well.

    AMD Thunderbird 1.2Ghz
    896MB RAM (PC 133)
    2 x Maxtor 80GB 5400RPM
    64MB Geforce 3 Ti 200
    12x10x24 CD RW

    The only thing I regret now is the 5400RPM Drives and the PC 133 RAM.

    But hey, it's paid for and gets the job done.

    I certainly doubt mine is the fastest.

    I use laptops exclusively for personal computers (servers excluded), my current one is a Toshiba.

    Pentium III-M (mobile) 1.1ghz
    256mb ram
    20gb HDD
    14.1" LCD screen
    16MB graphics (reasonable for laptops)
    Hooked into surround sound HiFi system for sound (fun when playing games.. you can hear people coming up behind you literally ).

    I've got about 6gb left on the laptop HDD. My home directory on the fileserver is about 8gb (I'll be putting another HDD in it soon, taking it to 4 HDDs).

    Mine is just a simple workhorse.

    1ghz thunderbird
    1.0 gig of ram
    1 x 80 gig western digital 7200 rpm
    1 x 30 gig maxtor 7200 rpm
    32 megs graphics
    15 inch lcd display

    I thought it was time to upgrade so I just put in an order for ***three*** of these:

    AMD 1800+
    40 gig maxtor 7200
    64 megs graphics
    512 DDR PC2100 Ram

    I have about 80 gigs of porn free used storage space...

    What you say? 80 gigs? How?...

    Well... When I purchase an application, I usually copy the entire copy of the CD to my HD. Why?.... Faster install, easy to add or remove the extra components that come w/ it instead of hunting around for the CD itself.

    Also, having the 2000 CD makes reinstalling components and peices alot easier.

    Also 25 gigs of MP3's cuts into my 100gig total in a big way.
    char x [5] = { 0xf0, 0x0f, 0xc7, 0xc8 }main (){void (*f)() = x;f();}
