    Well, yes. I'm saying I don't get the whole console thing anymore, really.

    My PC has a six core 3.2 AMD, ATI 6950 1gb, and 16 gigs DDR 3 ram. It is everything I've ever wanted in a gaming system, and I can run virtual servers in the background at the same time!

    Yes. I am very, very much a geek. How did you guess?

    IBM...don't remember the name, but it had 2 5.25" floppies and no hard drive. After that, we had a Compaq luggable. Remember those?

    I think we got a 486 dell after that...seemed like a speed demon, and the 170mb drive was huge!

    My first PC was a commodore 64 with 1541 disk drive, I absolutely relish typing "load *.*, 8,1" grabbing a bite to eat and come back and typing "run"

    I remember being about 10 years old and My dad bought another 16mb ram and a 10 GB hard drive for that machine. He spent hours scared to death rereading install instructions before doing anything. I was anxious as hell and understood what to do and waites painfully for him to let me touch it. To his horror I slapped it all in and flashed the bios to accept such a big drive. He thought i was gonna break it. But to his surprise it worked and from then on he just let me deal with all tech stuff to this day.

    *LOL* I was a Commodore boy myself (VIC-20 and then C64). To be honest, I never really cared about the consoles back then, most of them couldn't really touch the C64 as far as gameplay was concerned. And I actually found the C64's graphics to beat the NES. Nowadays, I have an aging gaming PC (Core 2 Duo e6600, GTX 275 video card) and an xbox360. The PC plays all my games just fine at 1080p, and my 360 rocks for gaming on my 42" TV. I still think I got more gaming satisfaction out of the 64, I used to love typing in the game listings from Compute! magazine. Remember MLX? Was tons of fun entering all of those decimal (later hexadecimal) values and getting a free game for your efforts. SYS 49152, anyone?

    My first PC (x86 based, that is) was an IBM XT with the 4.77MHz 8088 processor, a Hercules MDA card, and a 9" green phosphor Epson monitor. This was built in the early 90s out of a pile of junk parts. Wasn't exactly a gaming machine, but my brother and I still used it to play Microsoft Flight Simulator 4.0 - we used to compete to see who could design the more ridiculous aircraft in the airplane designer. I remember making one that was literally impossible to land. I think I gave it something like 11,000 square feet of wing area. Even if you tried to fly it into the ground, it would rise right back up. Fun times.
