Hello!

Anyone still use a dual core AMD 64 x2 6000+ 3.0Ghz or equivalent CPU?

I also have a Nvidia GT 9800 with 1GiB of GDDR3 memory and 3GiB of DDR2 SDRAM and a 1680x1050 resolution display.

Fellow time travellers to this age of 8-core 8Ghz CPUs and other folks welcome to chat & comment.

I own a 400MHz celeron with 288MB RAM and a 64MB nvidia card, upgraded from a 1MB/2MB card.

I still use AM2 semprons and Intel Celeron Ds and Pentium 4s.

I still have an Athlon XP 3000+ system with 2 GB of RAM and an AGP (not even PCIe, lol) 6600GT as a spare system. It's great for older games.

I even have a Pentium III laptop laying around somewhere. Don't use it anymore of course.

My brother uses an Athlon x2 and a 5450. It play WoW on low/medium settings very well. He's so into the game after how ever many years he doesn't care what the graphics settings are at so much, just as long as it doesn't lag to bad and he can jack up the view distance.

I also have two old K2 socket machines. They run Linux Mint pretty well, but I don't usually use them for anything, they just kinda sit there. I have a Pentium 4 system I use for things instead. I'm not good with old hardware but I have a bunch of ATI cards that have like 128 MBs at the most that I can throw into any of three if I want to.

This is my main as I haven't upgraded yet:


Processor: AMD Athlon(tm) 64 X2 Dual Core Processor 3800+, x86 Family 15 Model 43 Stepping 1
Processor Count: 2
RAM: 3006 Mb
Graphics Card: NVIDIA GeForce 6150 LE, 256 Mb (motherboard graphics)
Motherboard: ASUSTek Computer INC., NAGAMI2

old old old, and wearing down. Restarts randomly sometimes.

I still have an AMD Duron 900 (900 meaning 900 mhz :lol:  ) running with a Radeon 7500 (not the hd series, the really old one)

I got two HP computers around which are Athlon XP 3000+ systems as well, they have lackluster discrete GPUs though.

My sister has an Athlon x2 250 system with a Radeon 6450 but it has some issues, probably aged and poor PSU and MB electronics.

I think your random reboots might occur because of old/bad power supply or mainboard.

My GT 9800 1GiB video card can still play most or all of the video games out there. :) 

I'm going to upgrade next year though when I have an actual need for it.

I'm going to get into video gaming seriously again when Total War: Rome II and Company of Heroes 2 get released

Have you thought of buying a Radeon HD 7500 series card from an igpu satisfied friend? :lol:

Never have, never will. Old is Gold :lol: 

Edit: Come to think about it, I think the computer costed about 1000-1500 dollars. Enough for a high end computer today!

My brother said it cost him about $1000-1500 for his computers when he bought Pentium 4s. He didn't even buy a graphics card. I was shocked when I heard it. I am planing to buy a Trinity for 1/2 that total cost.

Well don't forget back then (way back then :lol:  ) those were kind of the high end computers. Anyways I bought my video card seperate, I forgot the original video card model....
