    I think you have a pretty decent machine there. If your mate thinks your machine is crap, send him to htt://discussions.hardwarecentral.com and make him look at all the other systems in here and he'll feel like crap too.

    You should add more RAM to your system.. and also I don't know what you use your machine for, but the 15GB seems too little. Upgrade to a 7200 drive. As for mine,

    Yeah, I think your computer is pretty darn good. Well, if it aint then mine is really behind the times!

    30GB 7200RPM IBM GXP75
    Videologic Sonic Vortex 2 (Aureal Vortex 2)
    Pioneer slot-loading DVD player
    Accton EN1207D 10/100 network card
    Belinea 106030 19" monitor
    An old ISA 56K modem

    My network gaming rig:
    K6-2 400 @ 450MHz
    Gigabtye GA-5AX SS7
    64MB Generic PC133 RAM @ 100MHz/CAS2

    OK, so you might not think my machines are much to look at, but they are enough for me for the moment.

    I wish I had your sys here at work, I'm on a Comcrap Pissario 2200 from 1997, with a no zif socketed Cyrix 180 mhz chip, all in one board, 336 modem, 1GB HDD, and no cooling fans at all, 13" vga monitor. They refuse to upgrade me, not suppose to be on line either, hehe! Primary use for this PC is Control System Supervisor, HVAC EMS front end.

    You should post HIS system so we can critique it, I think yours is pretty impressive especially the OC on the duron (you didn't mention cooling though). I would recommend an upgrade to the video card the GeForce2 scene is definately a buyers market right now.

    We came from the stars so they say, now it's time to go back. If I was conceived today, I would not get beyond eight cells, and yet here I am. In a way they were right, I don't have the heart for this world.

    The question is, why am I having so much trouble dying?
