My son and I, mostly my son-I provided limited basic electronic knowledge and the funding, built these a year ago when the prebuilt costs were still high.....

2 PC's--
AMD 950mhz
Voodo 2 64MB
768 MB Ram
40 gig
17" KDS .24 pitch
Windows ME

He has since graduated to:

AMD 1.1 mhz overclocked to 1.4
Geoforce 2 64mb
512 mb DDR ram
Aluminum server case with
slide out component trays
and 3 or 4 fans
KDS 21" .23 pitch

In total we have 4 computers in the house, one for each family member and 1 acting as a server.

The heat these things generate is enough to make a 5-10 degree
differential from the rest of the house.:cool:

HA! You think thats bad, in my room I have 4 400 watt Metel halid lights, four 96 watt power compacts lights. 2 800 gallon per hour water pumps. 3 300 gallon per hour water pumps. they are all air cooled! To add to the aqua-quiment I have 500 watt reciever for my sound system, that makes alot of heat! hehehe. I swear my room gets what seems like 110 degrees. but I think the hotest it has gotten is around 91 while the rest of the house is a cool 78F.....and thats in the winter;)

This reminds me that I need to post to that "small gadgets thread", but anyway, right now I have a brand new Fujitsu Lifebook, it's tiny, but still has a DVD/CD-RW, built-in wireless, insanely bright 1280x768 widescreen, 800MHz Transmeta, and some very cool extra features like optical out (used with s-video out for portable DVD player). Previously was using a Sony Picturebook, which I love, and before that, a Mitsubishi Amity (yes, there is a trend here of having to have the most powerful yet tiny laptop). Also, the crown jewel in the collection is the IBM PC 110 - half the size of the Picturebook, the smallest Windows PC ever. And before that there was the HP200LX, 100LX, and 95LX...etc. Oh, and I've got literally a dozen Pocket/Handheld PCs from 1.0 to PPC 2K2. And like Zanthrax I've got a REX6000 paperweight. Do we need to reach back to the Commodores etc. (anyone else got a BBC Master 128K - Mondo maybe?) :D :D :D

Mini-Z LOL!
No, but I do have a Sinclair Spectrum ZX (64K).
Those were the days.

My flagship workstation is:

Pentium-4 2.2 GHz
Intel 850E Motherboard
1024MB PC600 RDRAM
2 x 80GB 7200 RPM IDE HDD
LG DVD ROM, Panasonic CD-R/W
Nvidia Geforce-4 64MB AGP Graphics
SoundBlaster Audigy Sound
In-Built Intel Pro-100+ Ethernet
PCI Intel Pro-100+ Ethernet
Black Tower Case with 450W PSU
Samsung 21" Flat Screen CRT (Not flat panel)
Altech Lansing Speakers

Needless to say, a majority of the hardware (Motherboard, CPU, Network card and RAM) I got free from my contacts at the "Big-i"
I am still awaiting my 2,4GHz 'engineering sample' CPU.

We (I'm married :D) also three other workstations and a laptop.
One of the workstations is an Alpha 600MHz (Yummy) which runs LINUX.

The laptop is a dell 7500 series. A p3 750 is inside of her

The workstation is a SGI indigo 2.

2 fans in the case, one on the radiator other on the PSU
Watercooling setup.

Speaking of SGI, I omitted my SGI 1600SW flatscreen, w/ PCMCIA adapter for use as a second monitor on the laptops.
