Try and top that, well at least the amount of fans, hahahha!!!
At least I have one thing to brag about.
Well, they ain't obnoxious, but here goes:
Stripped down hulk of a PII350 with no PSU
V2 sli rig.
It doesn't do anything as you'd imagine.
Mntsnow is clearly the winner, hands down.
Nice systems... is there a rehab group for people that loose their babies!
full size ATX case A-bit got STOLEN
20 gig hard drive maxtor got STOLEN
19 inch Sony Monitor got STOLEN
32 megs v3800 asus video got STOLEN
amd k6III 450 with special cooling fan got STOLEN
A-bit motherboard got STolEN!
That's it I can't continue the message.
Yesterday, last night someone broke into my house and stole my baby! they just stole my computer, nothing else!
Low-life burgling scum really p!ss me off!
Geez this is so pathetic! This is a testosterone-filled mine-is-bigger-than-yours contest. Posting your machines for bragging rights, Okay man, brag to all us random ppl all over the world, and see how much we care. Maybe I speak for myself, but I just think you're silly.
I think it has more to do with the fun you have with it!!!
Just to see what people got standing around.
Nothing else, and certainly not pethatic, as you say it!!!!
So just join the fun and brag a little yourself, or maybe you have such a system you would be embarresed to talk about???
Don't be ashame, you can't help it, just save some money for a new power thingie!!!
Yeah it's just a bit o' fun comparing systems. My system hasn't ran for ages - it's just a stripped down hulk and I'm still including it.
C'mon F=ma, doesn't everyone love a pissin contest??
Size does matter!
1GHz Athlon processor
Seagate 4.3GB primary drive
Hot-swap removeable secondary drive: right now Maxtor 13.6GB
300W Redundant PSU
Inwin Mid Tower case w/4 fans (2 in/2 out)
HP 9100 CDRW
3dfx Voodoo 3 2000 AGP
3Com 10/100 Enet NIC
Adaptec 2630U SCSI card
Sound Blaster Live! Value S/C
Zoom Model 2929 56K Dualmodem
NEC Multisync 90 19" monitor
IBM ruggidized keyboard
Logitech wheeled mouse
Altec Lansing surround sound w/subwoofer
HP 970Cse printer
APC Matrix UPS 3000 (10 systems supported by this UPS)
The above system is my personal workstation, the others are used by guest employees and consultants.
I've got three other identical workstations except they have 750MHz Athlons, and I've listed the remaining 6 systems in the past so I'll save characters here.
My next buy will surely be most obnoxious, a rack-mounted Proliant server!
But it occurs to me that the hardware is NOTHING without solid, versatile software. I've got about $20-25K of software on my machines...I need ten (yes, 10!) copies of OS's and Office. The expensive stuff is the CAD and design software...sometimes as much as $10K per seat. Obviously a business expense, it becomes impractical for a home user or tinkerer.
Jeez, I'm going to need a sysadmin real soon!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
