This is returning the subject about OS Tak, so here talk about what you have heard about computers, about what your school's computer uses, what operating system you have, etc (PCs that is).

Example: Your computer's OS, your computer model and specs...

    There's a similar topic already, although the topic title is misleading. I'll change the title on the other one, since it was here first. I'll close this one.

      I'll reopen this, as the other went off topic and such. Sorry Shigeru-san! ;;

          Don't worry about it Kairi (and ignore the PM I sent you).

          Anyway, I like my Macintosh, because the operating system it has is fast enough for me, but my dad wants to buy a Windows computer because of it's speed O.o

          It's about 333MHz, enough for me, and it has a built-in modem, ethernet, 2 USB ports and 256 MB of RAM.

          However I broke it's CD drive *upset*

                  My iMac is an all-in-one 333MHz G3, which is not too fast compared to latest PowerMacs such as the G5, 256 MB of RAM isn't enough... my computer keeps using Virtual Memory :/ ...... It runs Mac OS X 10.2 (I need 10.2.6), and unfortunately the ATI Rage Pro graphics card doesn't take advantage of Quartz, therefore it's really not good for graphics. In fact the rendering is a bit wonky. The monitor is built-in as this is an all in one, my keyboard is a Logitech Elite Pro, the mouse is Intellimouse Explorer.

                      That's a very nice computer Shining Arcanine! You built it yourself eh? Was it the first one you built? How old is it? How much did it cost to make? What sort of case/cooling do you have in it?

                          Yes it was but I was trained in computer hardware four years ago so I could have done it eariler if I had the parts. It cost me about 50% ($1500) less than the dell equavilent ($3000). I built it 3 months ago. The cooling is a generic fan in the back of the case and a stock intel fan for the P4. I monitor the system temperatures and it seems to suffice. Not to mention it keeps me warm in the winter time. I am thinking of replacing them with large low rpm fans (I will get one for the front of the case too) to cool more efficently and lower the computer's noise.

                          Btw, it uses the Intel 875P (Canterwood) motherboard and Corsair memory modules.

                            It's software and speed overwhelmed me when I first used it. Now I think it's slow. lol

                            Actually, I am thinking of replacing my 200GB WD Special Edition Caviar HD with a RAID 0 setup of 72GB WD Raptor HDs. That should take care of the speed issues (all due to the sluggish 20Mbps transfer from the HD). Then using the 200GB drive for weekly backups to negogiate the increased risk of data loss caused by RAID 0. Of course it would take me a while to procure the funds required to do so.

                                Well that computer is much better than my crappy iMac... I mean 333MHz isn't taken advantage of... the RAM on my iMac is not so used.

                                  Well, here's my computer's specs, while not the greatest in the world, it gets things done.

                                  OS: Windows XP Professional SP1
                                  Processor: AMD Athlon XP 1.7 Ghz
                                  Video Card: NVidia GeForce3 64Mb DDR VRAM
                                  HD: 52GB (2 disks - 12 GB and 40 GB, partitioned into 20 GB partitions)
                                  Memory (RAM): 512 MB DDR
                                  Sound: Gineric onboard sound, I typically use headphones now

                                  Fastest AMD AthlonXP (but not a 64-bit)
                                  ATI All-in-Wonder Radeon 9600 (so I can also record from a TV signal!)

                                    Lol, the service pack one merely means you passed Microsoft's authenticity test. Most people would shrug it off and say "Well, if I don't download SP1 they can't catch me". The thing is, programs now "look" for SP1 on an XP machine, and if they don't see it they won't install. You probably knew this already though. ;

                                      Service Pack 1 screwed up my computer. Orginally it's preinstalled with Windows XP Home Edition SP1. I installed XP Professional which isn't SP 1 and then it screwed up AOL 7.0.

                                      Chain Recaction eh?.

                                      It screwed up the laptop too... My mom yelled at me so we had to start the OS over again.

                                        Want to hear my Wishlist?

                                        3.4GHz P4 Extreme Edition processor
                                        Another GB of TWINX Corsair RAM
                                        Dual 72GB WD Raptor HDs
                                        New case and processor fans.
                                        Namebrand 300Watt Power Supply
                                        External IDE HD Bay

                                        That should just about cover it. lol Anyway, I suggest going for the soon to be released P4 Extreme Edition. It is faster than AMD's chips (current 3.2GHz P4 also is faster) and is pretty much a repackaged Xeon MP processor.
