What I have (and probably will have to do for *quite* some time:
1 gig RAM
80 gig internal harddrive
Monsoon external speakers (have to have tunes..)
printer and scanner are not worth mentioning...good thing I work mostly on my own photos : )
Anyway, while I'm here I have a technical question. Hopefully, somebody can answer..?
Recently we networked 2 computers here at home. Would that slow MY computer down, (way down)if it is the one used as a server to the other?
<completely lost look>
hehe, i have ZX spectrum
or its equivalent - celeron 800MHz, 320MB RAM, 60GB disk, and so crappy gfx card, i'm not gonna name it (blush)... and freshly graphire3... though, i use it mainly for programming, and gfx is more of a hobby, so...
sometimes (all right, all the time) i wish i had at home the comp we use at school for computations - 16*2GHz P4 each w/ 2GB RAM, discobolos raid disk cluster w/ 4TB, running TruUNIX and Win NT, and for visualization we have cluster of 4 SGI Onyx2... *sigh*

I thought I'd update my original post.
I've also upgraded my vidcard to a Matrox p650 (I didn't believe all the reports, but I really can see a big difference). I'm also running an M-Audio Audiophile 2496 soundcard now, but it sounds the same for MP3s and DVDs (bought it for other reasons).
