My comp is a heavily upgraded Dell Dimension 4400....

-P4 @ 1.6 GHz
-512 mb DDR RAM, dual sticks (upgraded from 256)
-Stock mobo
-Dual CRTs, one 17" the other 19"
-GeForce 6200 AGP graphics w/ 256 megs, no turbo-cache nonsense, also an upgrade
-Dynexy 5.1 sound card (piece of crap upgrade I got on Black Friday)
-Stock keyboard & mouse
-40 gig HDD @7200 rpm, 80 gig slave drive upgrade at 7200 rpm for media
-1 speaker (the other one no longer works) plus my own stereo
-secondary Iomega ZipCD650 external CD burner "upgrade"
-stock PSU (not sure of the wattage)
-upgrade to a PCI USB 4-port hub so I finally have USB 2.0 Hi-Speed instead of "slow-speed" USB

All-in-all, this PC sucks, I usually get less than 20 fps on all recent games even with relatively low settings, plus the CPU skyrockets to 100% usuage from something as simple as playing a song or watching a movie or opening firefox lol. This rig would take hours to complete SuperPi.

Good news tho, I'm saving for a new pc, my budget is 1500 - 2000 USD.

Make a new thread in the Buying/Building General PC's section, we'd be glad to build for you!

Default Re: What are your system specs?


I'm pretty much a newbie at the computer hardware arena, but it is a new interest for me.

My current primary desktop PC system is as follows:

AMD Athlon X2 dual-core 4200+
2000 MHz front side bus, L2 cache 512 KB x2
320 GB IDE HD 7200rpm
2 GB PC3200 DDR RAM, (4-512MB sticks)
Double-layer 16x DVD +/- RW drive
16x DVD-ROM drive
eVGA 7600GT video card with 256MB DDR3 VRAM, PCI-E x16
Sound Blaster Audigy SE card

HP w19b LCD monitor, 19", 700:1 contrast ratio, 5 ms, DVI connection to PC
Philips MMS321 2.0 speakers

PC with all upgrades: $730
Monitor+speakers: $300

Total system cost: $1030

I use my computer for spreadsheet (I use OpenOffice), internet, and Autocad (2005 LT). I am also hoping to learn some 3D graphics software on it.
