Xkeeper ordered me to make this thread. So, discuss. Useful things, but can be a pain in the ass.

My computer is an old piece of crap that can't game worth shit.

Outside of that it's decent though.

If I wanted I could get a better graphics card and maybe a nice external hard drive. But right now I still can't make up my mind on what I want to spend my money on.

Eventually, if I ever manage to save up the money, I'm buying a whole new top of the line system with none of the cheap shitty parts I used last time. For now, I'd be satisfied with an HD video capture card that actually works, but I want to buy all the parts at once. If I buy some now and others later, I'll have a mix of new and old stuff, which is no good.

Uh... I had a hard time with inserting a second stick RAM (512)...

And I'm planning on dual-booting my computer with Mac OS X 10.4.7, if that's possible. I just need to find a disk or something that that can hold 4 gigs of OS... Or I can just go around Google and save the trouble of screwing things up badly.

I need my own computer, rather than some old computer of my parents that technically belongs to their employer (though the employer is a massive company with millions of computers, so it's very unlikely they'll miss this one, which is outdated compared to what they use anyway)

Unfortunately, all my computers have basically gone down the drain...

Sounds like what happens to me -- all of my computers except this one have been hand-me-  junk  downs that family has given me... most of them were years old at least or needed some serious tuning up.

Then I finally saved (okay, lies) and bought my own new laptop.

Thank god, too, my laptop now is so nice *_*

My computers is rather so-so in terms of performarence (Spelling?). The most note worthy feature at the moment is the 500GB external hard drive. But it also gets random shutdowns every now and then.

I love my new computer. I'm so glad that I'm not using Windows Me anymore. I've been using Me since 2001 and stopped using it at the beginning of this year.

Now I'm using Windows XP Media Edition. It has twice more space than my old computer . Also, GBA emulation doesn't slow down for me on this computer anymore.

I used ME for a while... it wasn't actually that bad (for me), for some reason.

I guess I just never did anything with it besides leave it running...

I need to build myself a new system soon. The POS my father purchased is (surprise) a Dell, and it's not all that great.

I'm starting to miss my old box, too.

My laptop was a high-school graduation present. Kind of ironic, as the main reason I wanted one was to use in school... well, college I guess.

I might just buy a video capture card now and another one later.

Most of my current ones are built to my specifications; I also try to keep the old ones alive, but it's kinda hard to do so in the case of ancient oces with soldiered on batteries.

I have some old ones that I'm thinking I should put back together and devote to cracking random passworded zip files I find on the interweb. But I may be switching rooms soon, so I'd have to turn them off.

I still have the old 200 MHz computer that I first visited the forum with (some of you may remember my posting about it, probably not though)... odd thing is, that computer has had a grand total of zero completely fatal hard-drive wiping crashes, while all the rest of my newer computers have- probably just because it gets used so much less (occasionally I have to dig it out during one of those fatal crashes), but still...

I just built one in my summer program, in fact...

It's got pretty much the same specs as my current one, better in some areas, worse in others. :/

Built two (my Linux box, and the family computer), only time I need OEM is laptops now.
Yes I know it's possible to build your own laptops but that's a clusterfuck to do

And now, for a relevent image featuring computers:
