What's your DREAMMACHINE?

More about : beat

Heck, my dream machine is nothing so drastic. Right now I'd just settle for a P3-800 (133MHz FSB of course) on an Intel motherboard based around the i815 but supporting DDR SDRAM. Put in 256 megs of DDR SDRAM into that. Then add in a GeForce2 Ultra based video card and a Creative Labs SB Live! Platinum.

Why not an Athlon? Well, I'm already spending butt loads for the video and sound, so why not also get an Intel chip? Heh heh heh.

Though first Intel has to take their head out of their keester and give me the motherboard that I'm sure a large majority of knowledged Intel users want.

Maybe my dreams are low, but at least mine will come true if my tax returns augment my current savings account how I'm expecting them too and Intel managers wake up and smell the coffee.

But if we're going for a true dream machine, then I want a quad set of Pentium 4GHz 64bit x86 extension chips running on a motherboard with four chips of 2 GB QDR SDRAM. And, of course, with appropriate Uber-Video and similarly awsome sound.

Why Pentium? Because despite Intel's insane management lately, I believe that in the future they'll straighten out again and Intel will prove it's massive bulk can actually be shifted to produce the most advanced CPUs in the world. It isn't the engineers holding Intel back, it's the idiots running the company. And I have the belief that one day those idiots will educate themselves in reality.

That is a great system. For doing what, I don't know, but it is a great system.

More realisticaly my dream system is being built as we speak, and should ship this coming Monday.

1.2Ghz Thunderbird
384MB VC SDRAM (PC133)
30GB ATA100 Hard Drive
64MB GeForce2 Ultra
22" Viewsonic PF815 Monitor
Sound Blaster Live XGAMER 5.1
S4/8200 Midiland Digital 5.1 speakers
16x Pioneer DVD with Hardware decoder card
12/10/32 Plextor CD Burner
and a partridge in a pear tree.

I guess I will just have to be happy with that.

Boy you must feel special! And you spent all that money for???? No thanx, I'll take my Athlon 1ghz with 768mb of PC133 ram. All SCSI with a 19 inch LCD. I really don't like Intel cpu's. your system would be torcher for me. =)

Hey,

Im waiting for an Athlon Socket A board running the 760mp chipset w DDR capabilities. 2 x 1.2ghz Tbirds Maybe a gig or 2 of DDR Ram, The Geforce2 Ultra 64 mb... hmm I need time to think bout it

Hmm.. yer system is biased towards professional 3D, not gaming. So when one is comparing systems, let it be within the same "group". My system is ok fer professional 3D apps, but nothing heavy. Still he he ..
My sys:
AMD 1.2, 1,1 or 1.0 ghz clocked at 1250mhz
256mb (pc133 cl2, will upgrade to 512 if mobo accepts it :-))
ASUS A7V
75GB IBM 75GXP HDD
Gainward CardExpert GeForce2 ULTRA/500 Golden Sample
Soundblaster Live 1024
Hitatchi 17" (643 model) runs at 1600x1200@75Hz
Creative labs 4 point surround (I never watch dvds on the puter.. and 5.1 surround doesn't have [-peep-] to say in games so...)
Aopen Hx08 or was it HQ08 (case) with 4 extra case fans
Intellimouse Explorer (ok infra mouse)

Hope it works when I get the parts.. orderd the GeForce2, the mobo, half the ram and the Alpha Cooler (6035MUC)..

Hmmm

And to think that the non-PC world only aged a bit over 6 years in that time. Computers are a warp in the space-time continuum.

I know, it's insane. Only seven years after the new millennium, a little more than five years after 9/11 (which I still remember like it was yesterday)...but the computing world has demolished every and all barriers.

I'd understand digging up the thread to reminisce about the "good ole days" and the hardware we thought was so hot back then.

But to only post "Heh.." as a comment. That's just wierd.
January 31, 2007 3:31:23 PM

OMG I just remembered I had an AMD k6 300mhz cpu 8O seems so far far away, I dont even remember how windows 98 looks like, when I close my eyes I see flashbacks of Norton Commander :p

I think he was quoting the guy who was on about the future of intel and pentium and joking about 4GHz CPUs.
