1.0 ghz athlon t-bird

640mb pc133

32mb gf2mx400 (ew)

45gig 7200rpm


it's crazy.. the geforce5 will probably be out before games come out that fully utilize the geforce3's potential.. and Carmack himself has said Doom3 will run on a geforce256.

My computer is horribly pathetic, which is why I'm going to upgrade once I get a job and some cash.


AMD K6-2 333mHz

128MB PC133 RAM

4.3GB Maxtor IDE HDD

TNT2 Ultra

Sound Blaster Live! Value w/FourPoint Surround Sound

15" Sony MultiScan 100ES

DSL Internet connection

Windows 98 SE


I got out of gaming in 2000 (which saved me a TON of money). The only game I bought in 2000-2001 was Red Alert 2. So I haven't really needed to upgrade, but now here comes JK2.
