Sometimes I think fondly of my ASUS A7V133 with Athlon 1GHz computer I spent almost all my money on while in college.
It was the first computer I built. I spent several thousands of hours on it.
That was a fun, exciting time.
Ditto. I did something similar.
Had an AMD system in college.
In the fall of 2000 I went from a completely obsolete pre-MMX Pentium 150@200Mhz and a 6mb Voodoo 1 Canopus Pure 3D to a Duron 650@950MHz (never could get it to hit that magical GHz) with a GeForce 2 GTS, followed by an Athlon 1200, and later an Athlon XP 1800+ and a GeForce 3 500TI.
That was truly the golden era of our hobby, IMHO.
Good times and good memories.
