DosReaper:1G DDR2 RAM ????????????
would'n that be DDR SDRAM??
Veld Waarde
CPU Type AMD Athlon 64, 2247 MHz (11 x 204) 3500+
strange ,my athlon seems faster than yours...
whoooops,seems i have 2 hd's mounted,more than you that is ,isn't it?
whoooops,seems i have a 19" monitor,larger than yours isn't it?
whoooops,seems i have 2 f-diskdrives,have you???
also a plextor cdr/rw,a Aopen dvdr/rw,but only 4 sysfans and no bleu lights,i don't think i gonna mount lights,that's more something for my youngest,his only 18 and likes to brag around with his stuff.
whooooops ,only XP?seems i have msdos6.22,win 98SE,and XPsp2 on my pc.
and laying around somewhere a win95cd,and something like 3 linux ,2beos and some other long forgotten os.

And for those who's think i only say this to brag,it's not ,just to point out to DosReaper that there always someone who's have faster,bigger...etcetera.......
EDIT:fot those who wants to know what's in their pc:
and look for Everset home edition,that program gives you full sysinfo and for free(for home users).But it wan't tell you how many bleu,red or black lights are in your case

Yeah, very happy with it, it doesn't support 320x200 though :D and my S3 doesn't have a DVI connector, so that's why i keep the Iiyama. And DOS games should be played on CRT, they look all blurry on tft hehe

I got a new system about 3 weeks ago...

Asus p4p800s-x ddr400 lan agp 8x
Intel celeron 320 2,4 ghz 533FSB 256 kb
40 Gb 7200 Rpm
256 Mb DDR 333 mhz
Ati radeon 7000 64 mb

I'm getting a Radeon 9600 pro and extra ram sometime soon, though.

But with the upgrades, I wonder what's the top of games I can play...
