Check out these vids I found online:

1995: "The Gamer's PC" from Computer Chronicles

1998: The Screen Saver's "Ultimate Gaming Machine"

What's totally amazing is that the netbook I'm using to type this out is more powerful than both machines, by a long shot. :lol:  Ironically however, I'll most likely have problems running Mechwarrior I on my MSI Wind. :p 

More about : wow

BattleMechs at their very best I think you'll agree, it's been downhill since then as far as graphics go. :lol:

At least prices have gone down as well! :lol: 

Man, I remember being so happy, when I finally had enough money to upgrade my 486DLC PC from 4 to 8 MB of RAM. Ultima 8 never moved so quickly!

I can still remember being really impressed with the gaming ability that a 4mb accelerator card opened up when paired with the Matrox Millennium that I was using at the time but when that rig was replaced with a K6-III rig with a Voodoo3, I nearly soiled myself when I saw how much better it made Half Life look.
