Post your computers

I searched... Didn't find anything quite like this yet (surprising). Maybe I didn't search for the right words. Let's see where you Foo.

Here's my setup.







Shown:
MacBook - OS X Panther 10.4.8
2.0GHz C2D
1GB PC5300 Dual Channel
120GB SATA
M-Audio Keystation 49e
Dual-head (using monitor to the right)
Logitech Revolution VX

Stack (top to bottom):
Home-build 1U rackmount - OpenBSD 4.0
2.4GHz Prescott
1GB PC3200 Dual Channel
2x80GB

Sun Ultra 5 - Solaris 10 (displayed on screen in first photo)
400MHz UltraSPARC
256MB RAM
40GB

Sun SparcStation 20 - FreeBSD 6.2
2x125MHz HyperSPARC
128MB RAM
2x20GB

Sun SparcStation 5 - OpenBSD 3.9
170MHz MicroSPARC II
64MB RAM
20GB

That's all I have running right now. I have all sorts of other cool things, but they're packed up for the time being. I just added the M-Audio MIDI keyboard tonight.

Alright, I'll add mine. It's about 3 months old. I got the monitor last month (upgraded from a 15" CRT). I put quite a bit of research into building a reliable, capable system, and all the components are a pretty solid balance of cost/reliability/performance:

* 2.1 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo (E6400 Conroe)
* ASUS P5B-E Motherboard with Intel 965P chipset
* 1 GB DDR2 800 MHz RAM (will add 2 GB when prices drop)
* 160 GB Western Digital Caviar RE (4 partitions)
* 250 GB Western Digital Caviar RE (4 partitions)
* eVGA nVidia GeForce 7900 GS
* CoolerMaster Centurion 5 case
* Rosewill 550 Watt Power Supply
* Samsung 18X DVD Burner
* Sony DVD ROM
* Windows XP Pro

* Dell E207WFP 20" Widescreen LCD monitor
* Logitech MX310 optical mouse
* Logitech Z-4 2.1 speakers

My 5+ year old Dell 8100 (P4, 1.3 GHz) isn't shown. As soon as I get the time, it's going to become a Debian learning box.

mine sucks too hard to take photos of right now (I need a new case, and a hardcore internal wire cleanup).

DFI NF4-SLI Inifinty motherboard
Coolermaster 850w PSU (Nvidia Certified for SLI)
athlon 64 x2 4600 (using arctic cooling freezer pro 64 heatsink)
2 x 1GB DDR 533 memory.
2x Geforce 7800GT videocards (both with arctic cooling accelero X1 coolers)
2x 400GB Seagate PATA hard drives (8mb cache)
200GB Samsung PATA hard drive (8mb cache)
Toshiba DVD-+RW 4x (PATA)
SB Audigy 2ZS
Netgear 802.11g PCI card w/ Hawking 6dB antenna


22" viewsonic display
microsoft comforcurve keyboard
logitech MX Revolution mouse
creek OBH-11 headphone amplifier (class A) with OBH-2 power supply
Sennheiser HD-580 headphones

Then there is my carptastic Dell Inspiron E1405....only upgrades is the glossy TFT display, and it has 1GB of ram instead of 512MB.....oh and a crank bros sticker on the back. I regret buying the thing since 2 months later I coudl have gotten one that actually had a real 3d accelerator in board instead of the "Intel extreme suckass graphics decelerator" that came with mine (read, software rendering is about as fast).

Don't have a camera, but my current craptastic PC is:

(Remember, this is about three years old)

2.4GhZ Pentium CPU
512MB RAM
60GB HDD
nVidia geForce MX440 (In an AGP slot!)

various other stuff I don't bother remembering.

As soon as I can, i'm gonna make a new PC, which is going to be:

2.4GhZ....Core 2 Duo CPU
2GB (2x 1GB) DDR2-800 (With room to add another 2GB later)
2x 250GB 7200RPM SATA 3.0GB/s HDD [500GB (Haven't decided weither to JBOD or RAID0 this]
eVGA geForce 7950GT 512MB PCIexpress x16 (With room to SLI in another one later if I feel like)

New PC is going to be around 1600$, add on about another 500$ for GPU and RAM upgrades (which will no doubt be cheaper by the time I get them) and about 375$ to fill it full of HDDs (5 extra ones, assuming the same 250GB model ^_^), which would eb 2400$ ish after upgrades.

2.93Ghz Pentium 4
512Gb 400Mhz PC3200 DDR
80Gb harddrive
2x16oz Bud Light beer cans
1x12oz Miller Light beer bottle
...and a bunch of other stuff

It's a piece of crap, but it has to last me another few years till I have a good job and can afford a new one.

ax0n what recording software do you run?

Do you know anything about the Korg 1212IO sound card by any chance? I am thinking of switching my recording system to Linux. Currently runs on win98 since that is what the card supports. It's and oldie but a goodie.

Boring is as boring does! Now go find some pictures of hot tattooed bikini clad ninjette zombie cheerleaders using computers and post them! Hint: Look in Explody Pups bedside table.

Don't know anything about the card. I use Audacity for analog recording. I use GarageBand for midi recording, compiling analog and midi tracks, and downmixing/exporting to some useable form, and LAME to turn that stuff into MP3s if I want to post to the Interwebs.

I didn't realize that your computer was a Christian fundamentalist. Does it like getting massages too?
