My Two Systems


Since it's inception this blog has carried the title: 'The Blogs on an IT Nerd in the Country.' Yet up until now, I have not listed the specs of my 'system'. Surely it's not truly a Nerds blog until I list the details of my 'Rig'. Today I fix this anomaly.

Currently my main system specs are:
  • AMD Athlon 64 bit 3400+ CPU socket 754, 2.41Ghz
  • 1Gb (2 x 512Mb) PC3200 DDR400 RAM
  • Abit KV8 Pro Socket 754 Chipset
  • XpertVision ATi Radeon X800GTO 256Mb AGP 256-bit DDR, DVI, TV-Out, AGP 8X
  • Seagate 300Gb 7200 SATA 8Mb Cache
  • Western Digital 120Gb 7200RPM 2Mb Cache IDE
  • Videomate DVB-T 300 Digital/Analog TV Tuner Card
  • Windows XP Home SP2
I've also just built another PC from old parts that I've upgraded on the above PC & bits I've got off mates & eBay.

It is:
  • AMD Sempron 3000+ 64-bit CPU, 1.8GHz, SOCKET 754
  • 512Mb PC3200 DDR400 RAM
  • ATI Radeon 9250 128Mb AGP 8X
  • Western Digital WD800JD 80GB 7200RPM SATA II 8MB Cache
When I get it up and running it'll be the perfect games server. Only problem is, the Hard-drive above is SATA II. The motherboard is only SATA I compliant. So I need a HDD jumper to jump the Hard-Drive back to SATA I speed. I don't have any HDD jumpers. So if you have a spare one lying around, let me know.

So I now have the combined power of a Dual-Core machine.....

Wait until I get my new PC...whenever that will be!

P.S. I don't have a hard drive jumper here, have them at home.

Nerds say what?

Well my computer has multiple monitors, a left handed mouse and a soft keyboard that's only semi-dyslexic

So there!
