Question Your Computer

If other, specify.

I have a custom PC, I purchased the parts at a local computer parts supplier ( Computer Boulevard - CBiT ). Also, some of the parts were purchased through Kevin ( Routerforums.com Administrator ). Once I had all the parts, I sent them over to kevin and he put them together for me.

Just yesterday I got a new Samsung SyncMaster 170MP 17'' Flat Screen LCD Monitor / Television. The monitor doubles as a television, you can either use the remote or the buttons on the front to switch between, TV and Monitor.

Computer Specs

Intel Pentium 4 3.0 Ghz
Maxxor 60 GB HD ( F: )
Maxxor 120 GB HD ( C: )
2 x 512 MB RAM ( 1024 MB RAM / 1.024 GB RAM )
ATI Radeon A9600XT

I always build my own. I got into this at work and never looked back. We made a cheap generic looking computer into a hidden "super system" for demonstrations and trade show, this was not my main job but fun to do.

I have six systems doing various tasks and I have a new system I'm working on for doing video. Since I don't want to get in to a long list I will just give the "general PC" that I'm sitting at and the one I'm building.

Asus MB, 512MB, XP2200, ATI 9600, firewire card, video capture card, modem card, USB2 card, Soundblaster live card, 100Mb ethernet card, two 9GB 10K SCSI (160's), 40 GB IDE, 40 GB detached firewire drive, Jazz disk, floppy, Panasonic DRV106 DVD R/W.

Building: Asus MB (built in sound, lans, firewire, USB2) 1GB(2x512), XP3200, ATI 9800 pro, 200GB ATA, Panasonic DRV108 DVD R/W, floppy, so far......

I know I'm not up to date on the new system but that is the best I could do for the $$$

I have 4 computers. 2 desktops and 2 laptops. The first desktop is mainly a work computer for doing 3d modeling (solid works) it has a P4 3.06 , 1 Gig Ram Pc4200 Duel Channel, Maxtor 120 Gb Hd 7200 Rpm 8 mb buffer, Asus motherboard(p4p800), and a thousand dollar video card not sold in retail stores specially made for 3d modeling. The second computer I use as a server at home, it's old but still runs like a top so I can't bring myself to dismantle it, the only special thing with this one is I spent aprox 600 bucks on the case alone. First laptop, slow little guy but still has his purpose. I use it for transferring my cnc programs from home to work. I draw and design the part on my modeling computer then dump them on my slow laptop and take that to the CNC mill or CNC lathe. Cad/CAM's RULE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! And finally the best for last. The newest member of the family. I bought a new laptop, it's a p4 3.06 GHz, with only 512mb Pc2100 (haven't upgraded yet), 60 Gig HD and wireless g network card. As you can see this is more my area (computers). But I still love woodworking.

What 3d modeling software do you use? How about the video card something like the fire gl stuff? I took some classes in PRO E but never got to use it myself........ It sure looked like a fun design tool and being able to do things in 3d was a big step from the old cad software.......
