Default How good are you at optimizing computers?

Just wondering, cause I got my old pc to play dvds and high graphic video games, use a scanner, a printer all without chopiness or with long loading times with piss poor specs. Here they are:

Company who made it: Maxtech
Intel Celeron 400Mhz CPU
48MB of memory
4MB onboard video card
SIS 620 motherboard
Windows 98 1st edition

And then I look around hearing people complain that their computer sucks or it's so slow...you just got to know what you are doing!

I'd say i'm pretty good at optimizing computers too.
I got Doom 3 to play on an old AMD Duron 800mhz (very slowly)
Got win xp to install on an old pentium1 166mhz (again very slow)

No, not really. I use Nero and ndvd for playing dvd's, and have direct x9. Yeah, the scanner is older, but it's not bad. It's a Visioneer usb touch scanner...the printer is kinda old, one of those walmart specials on lexmark!!
