Does PC100 run with the Duron? I tried some PC100 on my mums Duron 1GHz but it just kept crashing, the memory worked fine in the old machine. I replaced it with PC133 and it worked fine.

That's quite nice, but there really is no need for the 2GB RAM, unless you have more money than sense, or you have a very special need for it.

Is the 9800 o/c'd to pro speed? I was thinking of doing this but went for the pro anyway.

i prefer pc's. you can do waay more stuff.

and now OSX has a unix core, theres no point going for a mac. just get a (cheaper!) pc and put unix on it.

unless you can get your hands on a powerbook!

It's a very old desktop which the insurance company very kindly paid hubby £1000 to chose his own spec back in 1998.

Pentium 3 according to the sticker on the box (pentium 2 according to the device manager :confused: ) (can't remember the speed (for a statistician I'm crap with numbers) but it was one of those plateus that they seemed to take ages to top and hubby's out of date pc got nicked just as they got over it)
It's got a 3DFX Voodoo thingy in it which means the monitor plugs into a large blue blob that sits on top of the box (and which means we could load our old digicam directly onto the computer)
12Gb internal hard drive (partitioned)
40Gb external hard drive (which now holds all the mp3s etc)
Internal Zip 100 drive
Iiyama 17 inch monitor
Logitech track ball
Compaq keyboard (not sure which skip that was salvaged from).
(used to have a CD writer but I don't really like them - prefer my zip discs and it would struggle to write at anything faster than 1* so we swapped it into hubbies pc)
Cant remember how much memory it's got in it now (we swap them between pcs so often I loose track - but it's probably 512 (either a single 512 stick or 2 256 sticks)

Hubbies pc has a shiny new P4 in it and a shiney new motherboard/powersupply.
A 19 inch Iiyama montior
Another logitech trackball
And the cd writer which we share

We also have a cheapy P2 compaq (maybe that's where this keyboard came from?) which hubby is playing about with setting up a Lotus Notes server. Oh and we have 5 silicon graphics indys (4 in the garage) and 2 other unix boxes and 4 SG 20 inch monitors which we're playing with (unfortunately they all have padlocks on to access the hardware (skip job) so apart from drying them out and checking that they boot we've not really done much with em).

The main computers plug into a switch which plugs into the ADSL router.

We've got a scanner somewhere (although I haven't checked to see if it still works after I dropped it) and a printer that's on it's last legs.

Oh and back at hubby's parents house we've got my old "luggable" 486 and the dot matrix printer that went with it (salvaged from my parents) and 2 AS400s which are currently being used as a table (I refuse to spend £2 a day on the electricity it will take to run them and we don't have the space really).
