Hello :slight_smile:

Here’s mine, roughly four weeks old after a complete system meltdown destroyed my old one:

Case: No-Name midi sized tower black/silver

PSU: ENERMAX EG465AX-VE(G) (450 watts)

MoBo: ASUS K8N4-E SE, Nvidia nForce 4-4x chipset

CPU: AMD Sempron 2800+, not overclocked (and to be replaced by something faster soon, probably a 64 bit/3700)

RAM: 3x 512 MB KINGSTON DDR1/400, together 1.5 GB (and to be 3x 1 GB soon)

VGA: ASUS PCI-Express with ATI Radeon x300 GPU, 128 MB, TV-Out, hooked up to a 19" ACER LCD and a 21" Sony TV set

Sound: On-board (that’s fine), hooked up to the Sony home stereo system, superb sound!

LAN: On-board 10/100/1GB

Modem: 1x internal PCI modem Connexant WinacHSF (sooo old but still working), 1x wireless modem-router D-LINK DSL-G604T which is hooked up to the LAN and wirelessly to my boyfriend’s laptop. Internet sharing works fine, haven’t yet figured out how to get them to transfer files between them.

HDD’s: Internal 1x 120 GB Maxtor, 1x 40 GB Seagate (Master/Slave IDE 1), external 1x 120 GB Maxtor identical to internal one in USB case for backup purpose

ODD’s: 1x ASUS DVD-E616P (reader), 1x LITE-ON DVDRW LH-20A1-P (Firmware H0A) (burner) (Master/Slave IDE 2)

Other “drives”: 1x Apacer 6-in-1 memory card reader, sitting in floppy bay and connected to internal USB header, 1x Floppy 3.5", sitting in the other floppy bay and connected to - duh, floppy connector :slight_smile:

Keyboard: “LASER” with lotsa extra buttons that actually work without any drivers, PS/2 connection

Mouse: 5-year old optical “Logitech”, working EXCELLENT, best mouse i’ve ever had in my hands! USB connection.

Joystick: YES! Cheapo no-name PS/2 style joypad, USB connection, works fine for the only game i have installed - NEED FOR SPEED UNDERGROUND!!

Extras: 1x USB-IrDa dongle - infrared is still used sometimes for transferring files from phones without bluetooth. 1x USB-Bluetooth dongle (on back of the machine) for file transfer from/to phones WITH bluetooth. 1x PCI-USB 2.0 card - you can NEVER have too many USB ports! 1x USB-Data cable “Nokia DKU-2” for phones that have PoP-port connector (Nokia serie-60 supported). 1x USB-Data cable for various Samsung phones, used for file transfer between the computer and my Samsung SCH-S179 CDMA phone. 1x Serial-IR adaptor (IrDa incompatible!) to be used for file transfer between the computer and the Casio camera-watches that my boyfriend and me own. 1x “SmartPanel” which is used only to read the temperatures of CPU (sensor attached directly to CPU, under the HS) and main HDD. The fan speed knobs are dummies - not connected, as are those USB connectors (no free header on MoBo). 1x triple-fan HDD cooler (that “grille” on the front) behind which the main HDD does it’s job (lost one due to overheating in 2001, swore “never again” and used this device ever since… it’s easy to have the machine run hot when the ambient temperature is constantly 30+ degrees C)

Scanner: MUSTEK 600 CP, unsupported by Vista but working in XP in Virtual PC :slight_smile: LPT connection.

Printer: EPSON Stylus Photo 830, USB connection.


OS: Windows Vista Ultimate (boot), Windows XP Pro SP2 (Virtual PC), soon to come Linux SuSE 10.0 (in another Virtual PC).

Kind regards…



Thanh-BKK, I like your system…very nice! :slight_smile:


Thanks a lot :slight_smile:

It was a completely unplanned investment - my old system which had been performing flawless for well over five years died suddenly and dramatically, so i had to go for a new one - found that there was no more MoBo for my socket “A” CPU, that new MoBo’s also didn’t support my SD RAM any longer and that new MoBo’s also don’t come with AGP slots any longer… so it was just anew case for the cosmetics and a new PSU for future upgradeability, plus that internal card reader device (previously used an external USB one) and there i had a new system… i used the old HDD’s and DVD reader drive, alltogether that system which i built up myself did cost me close to 12.000 Baht, ok i could sell off some of the still functioning old parts (CPU, PSU, those SD RAM modules) so alltogether i had to lay out some 9.000 Baht (little over 250 us$ equivalent) - for that price you’ll get not even a lowest-spec brand name machine here and i can say that i have high-quality parts in mine :slight_smile: Had to pay almost three times that on top for the Windows original Vista Ultimate but it was worth it - i am looking for at least five years with that OS.

Next i am looking to get more RAM and a faster CPU for better performance in the virtual machines - no more messing with boot managers when i can have all the OS i want under a stable running Vista. So the final spec will probably change to 3 GB of Kingston RAM and an AMD Athlon 64/3700 (the fastest whatever i can get for socket 754), and i might drop in one of those 500 GB hard drives for good measures too, i’ve got four SATA ports available and want to do something with them. That’ll be 500 gig for data and i’ll give Vista the whole 120 GB to use for itself and the virtual machines, of which i will have several more then (hello Ubuntu, hello OS/2!). The 40 gig one keeps it’s current function - bit torrenting only, i want to have that hard drive intensive task away from the system drive.

Looking to a bright future (yes all the new devices have 3 years warranty as opposed to brand-name systems where you get one year only) here…

Kind regards…

your Thanh


@Thanh-BKK - that’s a really nice PC you have there :wink:

What software are you using for the display of your CPU/Mobo temperatures and so forth?


Many Motherboard manufacturers have a utility for this (Asus has PC Probe, MSI has PC Alert, etc). Probably the best general one is speedfan. It’s free. :slight_smile:
