    OK, here are my specs.

    I started with a Seanix, 1999, but I change stuff each year, and few of the original parts I had are left.

    Seanix Case (No need to change it IMO)
    300W Power Supply (Was running on 200W, was about to toast up my PC)
    ECS K7S5A SiS Socket A Motherboard (About to get out of my comp)
    AMD Athlon XP 1800+ @ 266 mHz FSB (Will seemingly soon go).
    Thermaltake Volcano Cu 6+ CPU Fan (Noisy as hell, will leave with MB & CPU)
    Xelo nVidia FX 5200 128MB Video Card
    Old SoundBlaster Card, no need to change it ATM.
    Original Seanix Speakers (2pc.)
    Original 15 in. monitor (sucks)
    Original Printer (still works well).
    Original MS/Seanix Keyboard
    Microsoft Wheel Mouse Optical.

    Ok all, bow in wonder to the crap-uter...

    -900MHz AMD Athlon
    -640MB PC133 ram
    -Dual 40GB hard drives (I've had the displeasure of losing a hard drive twice...what an accomplishment...thankfully, Flight Sim 2004 + all my SELF-MADE mods never got touched...phew, there's hundreds of hours of work on that one)
    -Gateway EV910 19" CRT monitor
    -32MB GeForce2 vid card
    -Sound Blaster Live! audio card
    -No speakers, they got fried by lightning, so I use the Plantronics Audio 90 headset...great set IMO
    -Standard 32x read DVD drive
    -(the clincher) ... 8x4x32 CD writer. Yep, takes me 30 mins to burn a CD-R, and almost an hour for the -RWs. Sucks.
    -Running on Windows ME, which is as stable as the San Andreas fault. I average 10-15 freezes/crashes/BSOD/CTD per day, and I'm gonna kill someone...

    Anybody who wishes to donate to the Joe Prokopanko fund may send their system to......erm............never mind.

    I'm building a new system based on the Athlon 64 this summer, provided I can cough up the three grand. Getting a job for that one...and the fact that my car now needs a thousand bucks in repairs won't help. Yep, I got run off the road by some drunk at the lake, who didn't even stop. Idiot.

    Anyways, that's my POS. The real bottleneck on it is the flight sim, which has some...erm...custom modifications, like custom traffic, sceneries, AFCAD, etc.... that sucks resources. I get about 3 frames per second if I crank everything. Man, that proggie's hard on memory...cranking everything is asking for the blue screen...in fact, it's like trusting a monkey with a shotgun...


    Anybody have any other horror stories about their system?
    :chemist:
