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
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 LPT connection.
Printer: EPSON Stylus Photo 830, USB connection.
UPS: LEONICS 750 VA.
OS: Windows Vista Ultimate (boot), Windows XP Pro SP2 (Virtual PC), soon to come Linux SuSE 10.0 (in another Virtual PC).
