    RAM: 8GB
    HDD: 2 x 500GB
    Monitor: 1600x900
    OS: Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit

    Love it to bits, although the processor can be a little slow at times.

    What I use for music/MS Office.

    1.66Ghz Intel Atom
    1GB Ram
    120GB HDD

    What I use for everything else


    This is my current spec:

    Case: Antec 180
    Mobo: Gigabyte p67-ud4-b3
    CPU: Intel i5-2500k
    GPU: Nvidia 560 Ti
    RAM: Corsair 1333 mhz ddr3 2x4gb
    PSU: BeQuiet! 700W (afaik)
    Sound card: Creative X-Fi xtramegamer
    TV tuner: BlackGold BGT 3630 + internal antenna
    Network: 1. Intel Pro/1000 GT
    2. Intel Desktop 6205bgn
    Keyboard: Microsoft Ergonomic Keybard 4000
    Mouse: Razer Abyssus
    Monitor: HP w2408h
    SSD (for system and apps): M4 256gb
    HDD (for data): spinpoint f3, 1tb x2 (one is faulty)
    OS: Mostly Windows 7 64 bit, ultimate box (bought in pre-sale in amazon), sometimes linux (opensuse, fedora, ubuntu)

    In the future I'll probably switch to AMD's Kaveri, replacing CPU and GPU (I, after all, don't play that much as I wish I would when I bought the PC) and mobo and ram... I'll also get a smaller, quieter case and PSU.
