^ (9/7/2010): Ha, I remember when that was the stuff. My water cooling has since leaked and fried my mobo. So now I'm rocking an MSI laptop with an i5 430m :)

Here's the deal: about every one or two months, one of these crops up. To prevent that, this thread will be moved to Other Hardware, and then stickied. Any other dream machine threads after that time WILL be locked.

So, for the (hopefully) last time, have at it!

EDIT: Oh, I forgot to post my specs...
Apple IIgs
7.0mhz 65C816 (Zip Chip)
Apple SC CD Drive
Two Apple 5.25 drives
Two Apple 3.5 drives
Apple IIgs Color Monitor
200MB WD SCSI Harddrive
GS/OS 6.0.1

the only thing i didnt like about the x2 5000 was that it was 2x512 l2 cache as apposed to the s939 x2 4000 and the am2 x2 5200 which are both 2x1mb l2 cache

My dream PC is a pre-built. I just like them better.

Acer AL1706 Black 17" 8MS LCD Monitor. $150

Compaq Presario SR1750NX $510

AMD Athlon 64 3500+ (2.2Ghz) with 512Kb cache
1GB DDR PC3200 RAM
200GB 7200RPM SATA


Now, you're thinking "why a crappy Compaq". Well it isn't.

I would max the memory out (4GB), and install a 500GB Hard drive onto it, and add another DVD-RW. Plus, most importantly, a Video card, and a fresh copy of XP Pro SP2 OEM. I hate that software that comes with Compaq. Lots of stuff, and Norton's included

I agree with you there. My Celeron would be my dream machine if i had the 2GB ram on it.

All I would want in a dream machine is just something decent...like an E6600 or E6700 if I want to waste.
