I'm getting a new computer soon. They had a free upgrade from 512MB of RAM to 2GB so...

It has a P4 3.0 GHz with HT,120 Gigabyte hard drive, DVD burner and all sorts of very nice features. I'll get the specs for it in a bit. ;

Whoa a P4 with HT technology, I hear about that alot but never hear about anyone who has it.

My sister has a normal P4 Dell Dimension 8100, with a 52x CD burner, 16x DVD-burner, 80 GB hard drive, but I abused and lost my privledges to use it, (too many downloads she found out about). I wish my computer had that kind of power....

I have a "poor" Celeron Processor and 128 MB... I wanted 256 MB and a pentium 4 processor, but I am stuck with this..

I got to get my hands on the cenanto (sp?) processors on laptops... they sposed to be good!

Actually, Centrino is just a combination of things like a networkign card in laptops. It's not actually a chip. ;;

I've never expereinced hyper-threading, guess I will soon. o.o;

I've always been interested in Pentium Xeon processors, but from what I hear, they were only ment for servers, is it still possible to use it anyway?

I don't think I'd be able to make an Apple XServe act as a desktop... but it is an Apple G4 Processor... I think a lot of computers can be made to act as a server even though they don't have the power.

VMWARE? Isn't that just an emulation though? You won't be able to judge the power of your computer from VMWARE...

vmWare is a Emulation software for Windows. It's better than the Windows verson of Microsoft's Virtual PC but it cost a little bit more for the extra freatures..

Well, My VM processor gets downgraded to 1 gHZ, half of 2.0 gHZ

So exactly what does that make me? Chopped Liver?

My computer's specifications are:

2.4GHz Pentium 4 Processor w/800MHz FSB and HT Technology
1GB Corsair memory @ 2-3-2-5 latencies
Western Digital 200GB Special Edition Cavair HD
ATI AIW 9700 Pro (3rd fastest commercial video card in the world)
Creative Soundblaster Audiology 2 (extremely high end soundcard)

Here are a few facts about my PC. It is fine turned for performance. I have disabled the paging file (don't do that unless you have more than 768MB of RAM) and several unused (and sometimes insecure) windows components to speed up the computer considerably.

If you are wondering why I said 2-3-2-5 latencies, here is a little fact about memory. Memory does not respond as fast as the processor needs it to. Faster responses require lower latencies. However, most memory can not perform at high clock speeds and respond quickly. Corsair memory is among the only memory in the world that can respond that qickly when operating at 400MHz (that is before dual channel, 400MHz*2=800MHz). I guarentee the memory in my PC is faster than whatever Dell puts in their PCs. :D

For some reason, my computer's speed never minds me. Even if it is a "behind" 400MHz Power Mac G4. I really like power, but for my own life (at the moment) speed isn't quite the big issue for me.
Unfortunately it is for my father.
Besides, I could get a processor upgrade card. Although I have no intention of doing so.
I'm actually glad to have it, even when the G4 is 67MHz faster than my iMac (which has a G3 Processor).

G4 eMac? I might look into my options for that, but if so I'm afraid my 400MHz G4 would be more expandable... 4 PCI slots, a slot for an Internal Zip drive or Floppy Drive, case openable from the handle, etc. It's just so powerful and easy to use.

Pentium 4 Processor at 3GHz w/800MHz front side bus/ HT Technology
Windows XP Professional
2GB Dual Channel DDR SDRAM at 400MHz
128MB DDR ATI RADEON 9800 Pro Graphics Card with TV-Out and DVI
Sound Blaster Audigy 2
120GB Serial ATA Hard Drive,
16x DVD-ROM Drive
8x DVD+R/+RW Drive with CD-RW


I know the Hard Drive is unimpressive, my old computer had a 120 GB Western Digital one. Going from a 1.4? GHz 256 RAM system though, it's plenty fast enough for me now.

The graphics aren't too important to me, don't game much and I have a DVI Flat Panel so...

I was surprised to find Messenger and Indexing turned off when I first looked into services. The XP firewall was on by default too. I loaded up something better of course before going online to get the Windows Updates.

Nice specs. The main bottleneck on that system as well as any other system is the hard drive through. Look into two 72GB Raptors in a RAID 0 configuration (144GB) and that computer will fly on boot up as well as anything else that is HD intensive.

By the way, be sure to put it in a room with an air conditioner. Otherwise when summer comes by you won't be able to stand being near your computer.

Not to mention, I couldn't help noticing that you have the same sound card that I have. How do you like it?

My Macintosh isn't that expandable.... o_o.. it's limited..

My Dell computer has poor specs... I have to wait forever to do something (aleast it's not 10x slower... )
128MB of Memory (Probally at 250 gHZ or higher)
Windows XP Professional
30 GB Harddrive (I can live with that, but I can't use it for a dual booting)
12x DVD Drive
32mb Intel Extreme Graphics (A very slow graphics card... >_<....)
SoundMax Intergrated Soundcard..

:-/... I need more memory though. My VM runs too slow because the lack of memory installed the computer.

250GHz Processors are not on the market or in existance yet. It would be nice through.

It must be lower than... ... it maybe could be 25 mHZ.. EEK!!!

Well, My computer isn't that good for advanced stuff.

I thought her computer was a bit faster than that. Maybe it's her other one..

I plan to swap out the hard drives as the first thing I upgrade. It still seems so much better than my old Gateway... x_x; Gateway makes the worst products, it was os unstable even with XP.

Get a dell instead of a gateway next time! It's more reliable.
