    I'll go first.

    Pentium 4 CPU - 2.0 ghz ; 1.5 GB pc3200 RAM 400 mhz ; 500 GB internal HD (EIDE, 8MB cache, 7200 rpm) ; 232 GB External HD (WD MYbook) ; e-GeForce FX 5200 video card (DDR, 128MB)

    I've got two writers on it. One is mostly for read only I guess, but it can burn at 1x... and the second is a "SONY DVD RW DRU-720A ATA Device"... that's what the computer lists it as. Turns out that it's 16x. They likely come a lot faster than that now. I haven't shopped one in quite some time. I looked on the web. Looks like writers like that aren't anything special. I got this thing 3 years ago. I'm still happy with it even if it is a bargain bin item now.

    Hell, it can't match my junior gamer wanna be video card, but dammit, I can run windows vista ultimate without a bunch of bull****. :irked:

    Anyone done any hardware upgrades?

    I have few of them (Macs and PCs), but my primary one is a Vista Ultimate PC that built myself this year from parts I ordered from Amazon and NewEgg:
    2.4GHz Intel Core2 Duo
    2 GB RAM (667 MHZ)
    300 GB SATA HD
    NVIDIA GeForce 7600GT (256MB VRAM)
    DVD-RW (don't remember the speed)

    I'll probably buy a new Mac laptop later this year after Leopard comes out.

    looks like I built mine a month or so after you built yours - lol


    2.6 GHZ Windsor dule core
    2 GB RAM (800 Mhz)
    4x 250GB Western Digital Caviar SE hard drives in a Raid 5 array, lot of overhead nets about 800GB usable array space, but it is smoking fast and in theory secure.
    2x DVD burners
    using the intergrated GeForce 6100 on board the Gigabyte M61P motherboard
    still chugging along with XP on this puppy.


    seriously I built mine in mid/late March I bet you built yours late Jan or so. Basically a Newegg only machine.

    Guess I'll be the first to put an AMD on the board

    17" Samsung 710N
    AMD 64 X2 3800+ (~2GHz)
    2GB PC3200 RAM
    1x 500GB Samsung SATA, 1x 200GB Maxtor SATA, 1x IBM 80GB IDE
    1x DVD burner
    1x Geforce FX 7800GT
    Windows XP

    I use flashmemory sticks these days, so I don't remember the speed of the DVD burner. I'll probably stick Vista on it soon.
