[quote="Campusanis"]doomicon, how can you get this amount of RAM?!

And my monitor ownz you: 15" Highscreen. If I put it on 1024x768 with 70Hz or more, I get a loud horrible beep. If I put it higher, the screen goes black. -.-[/quote]

My old compaq 21in is OOOOOLD!!! I awaiting to get a tumor from that beast, and the screen is so rounded it's like looking at a fishbowl!

It's time for an upgrade at home.. but I work with computers all day, so when I get home I don't bother.. I play MxO and that's about it. DoW Winter Assault occasionaly. Maybe if I used it more.

I remember a time when I had 4 networked computers, and my buddies would come over, have some beers and play Tribes, Unreal, Quake, you name it... until the weee hours. now since I've moved to St. Pete, don't have the room in the house. Right now I have my Intel box for games, and my Sun Box (Ultra 10) for occasional work related stuff. But I haven't logged into my Sun box in months.

I WISH!!! My job is awesome, get to wear whatever I want, hours are great and everyone is cool. Compared to some of the contract work I've done with Verizon, ATT, and some jobs in NYC, this is the best gig I've had to date! But oh yea, I would love to take one of these babies HOME!

When the company purchased new desktops for the entire office, I was able to take one of the old ones home for my daughter, with a flat panel. But it's an Evo, and it stinks for gaming. But it has good CPU, 512Ram, 60gig HD.. and built in graphics and no room for expansion Sad It runs Linux, and the only thing she uses it for is IM. lol
