Digging up an old computer....


I just found an old HP Pavilion 7950 in the attic

I bought it like 9 years ago..
I was wondering if i could relive any memories on it..

So my specs are...
CPU:AMD Athlon at 1.2 Ghz(Thunderbird)
GPU:Geforce 2 MX/400
OS:Windows XP
HD:80 Gigs

I want to see games that run on this archaic machine.
Thanks for your answers.. :D

  1. Half Life, quake 2/3. I think you would be looking at pre year 2000 games.
  2. Deus Ex 1 (?)
    Doom 1

    I doubt half life would play though.

    Hey, for fun's sake...try starting Crysis? ;)

    Half life can be played on a PII laptop, it has one of the lowest requirements of all time.
  4. Yup, I stand corrected. But to be more precise:

    System Requirements
    CPU: Pentium-133 or equivalent
    RAM: 24 MB
    CD-ROM speed: 2X

    Video Mode: SVGA with 2MB of video memory
    Hard Drive Space: 400 MB
    Sound Board: Yes
    Operating System: Windows 95, Windows 98, Windows NT

    Recommended System Requirements:
    CPU: Pentium-166 or equivalent
    RAM: 32 MB
    3D Accelerator Board: Yes
    Operating System: Windows 95, Windows 98, Windows NT

    Wow!! That was the time....when minimum sys.req. meant 24MB RAM and recommended was 32MB! :)
  5. I played Half life on a K6 266 (IIRC) with a whole 64MB of RAM and a Matrox Millennium 2D card coupled to an Orchid 4MB accelerator card, them's were the days!
  6. .....sigh!! :)
  7. Diablo 1 AND 2 should run on that PC.

    Welcome to hours of mad clicking :-) I'd buy a new mouse for that system though hehe.

    I played half life on a packard bell 486 DX2 66 MHz with 88 MB ram and 8 MB Monster GFX card. The CPU had been upgraded to a 586 133 MHz overclocked chip. But at 640X480 some section were like a slide show.

    Mech Warrior 2 will play maybe 3 will also.
    Rainbow 6
    WOW 2 This may have just been called warcraft 2.
    TA 1 and 2

    :o There is never going to be any need to have that much RAM on a graphic card! :lol:
  10. Thanks for all the answers guys! A store near me sells old games. I'm gonna go there right now!
  11. Cool, do put up a few names if possible....won't mind getting some myself! :)
  12. Id consider finding win 98 for that rig and playing a load of games that never ran well with xp - the CD editions of tie fighter and xwing rebel alliance etc, Theres tons of good games that never worked under xp, and your hardware on that machine would be great for those sort of games.

    Sorry Bro... It's a local store called "Uniway Computers.."

    And about Win98 i don't know..
    This originally came with Windows ME(which sucks)
    But i have a product key for it...
    Not the case with Win98
  14. I'm actually gonna try Crysis...
    When i do it ill tell you how it went...
  15. Do any of you know if I can overclock this thing..
    The BIOS doesn't permit it..
  16. Anyone?
  17. Figure out which mobo you have. If it's an Intel brand mobo, you can't OC it.

    There is probably an OC guide in the Overclocking or CPU section of the forums or you can easily find one through google. You're trying to OC the CPU right?
  18. Yep...
    I think my mobo is Asus not sure...
    I'll check
