My main computer is a custom built machine
Asus MOBO mx350 or something or other
AMD phenom black edition quad core CPU 2.3ghz i think
2gb ram
500 and 300 gig harddrives
Nvidia 8800GTX card
Soundblaster xfi <-- yes ive actually got this to work at one point
LG dvd writer

Im not at home right now otherwise I would be better with some of these numbers.

I also have a netbook with LFS, a atom cpu system for a NAS and server, and 2 other computers one is for school work and the other is as a DVR that used to be a flash drive raid system running gentoo.
How much would one of those pentium cpus cost me?
I am looking for one

PFFF! I got you ALL beat.
Code:
Processor:  AMD K6-2 450mhz
Memory:     448MB SDRAM
Hard Drive: 20GB Western Digital
Graphics:   ATI All-In-Wonder 7500 64MB-RAM
Sound:      Onboard ViaTech sound
Lan:        100MBit RealTek PCI Lan Card
Lets see anyone go any lower: "Its digital-limbo time. How low(slow) can you go?"
I gues it is true. Only a Linux user would be proud of how slow their machines are.
No offense, but shouldn't the purpose of posting system specs be to see how powerful your system is, not how slow? Sucks for you, not being able to run GNOME Shell, a full desktop environment, Compiz, Mutter, any games, MythTV, or any Qt or GTK applications.

I can run Slackware with fluxbox and use a whopping 253 MB of memory for heavy web browsing. I'm not lining up to run on a 455Mhz processor, but could definitely do it. I definitely find it interesting to see what people can get out of low spec machines.

Can a machine from the late 1980s run KDE or GNOME? No!
Can a machine from the late 1980s run Compiz? No!
Can a machine from the late 1980s run Mutter? No!
Can a machine from the late 1980s run FOSS games? No!
Can a machine from the late 1980s run Qt or GTK+ applications? No!

And that's about all I have to say.

LOL, I don't think the machine in question (450Mhz k6 with 448 RAM) came from 1989. Maybe you were talking to Smeeze's post, in which case I don't know what he does with 12MB RAM and X.

That's some set of computers! In my case, it's 2 computers at 17, but I will probably add more as I get older...

...Or not, as I can keep replacing parts in and rebuilding my desktop I already have.
