    What is your main BOC machine? I've got a laptop with a little lap board so I can sit in my recliner and surf.

  7. Instead of going on a rant about what a great PC I have I will just list the specs.

    19inch AOpen flatscreen monitor
    Radeon X1800 512MB Video Card
    2GB Kingston (PC2 4200) memory
    3.73GHz Intel Pentium Extreme Edition Processor
    Asus P5N32-SLI Delux Socket T Motherboard
    3- 250 GB SATA Hard Drives
    1- 200 GB IDE Hard Drive
    1- 100 GB IDE External Drive
    DVD-RW drive with litescribe
    Sony CD-RW 52x
    Fatal1TY 120mm CPU fan
    Raidmax Volcano 630 Watt Power Supply
    XG Dragon Black with blue lighting PC tower

    Bit of an overkill isnt it. On the other hand I just go ahead and use my Alienware 3.2Ghz blue laptop to sit in bed and surf.

    Only a desk top for me. Would like to have a lap top but can't afford it. Probably wouldn't have this if wife hadn't gotten it as a mothers day gift last year from our one son who is into computors. If I had a laptop I could take it fishin with me ,and when the fish don't bite I wouldn'tbe as bored.:roll_eyes: Course then I 'd have to take the generator to keep it charged up.

    I use a desktop mainly. I have a laptop but it is a little slower than my desktop so I don't use it much.

    GARBAGE!!!!! Dude you went with an Intel for a DIY rig:crazy: AMD brother all the way. You could of got an Athlon 64 FX processor that destroys those punks at Intel, especially for gaming. I like clean looking cases though, so I'm going with a nice Lian-Li Aluminum case with a modded blacked out grim reaper window kit in it. Man, I still can't believe you went with the CrapTEL processor. If you weren't my friend...I tell ya:lol:

    Oh and I use a desktop at the moment. The only thing the Army gave me:big_smile:

    Greg, I use a desktop but wife likes to use the laptop in her recliner. I still have my old IBM Aptiva running W-95 for the grandkids. Wife was upset with me last week when I had her wireless shutdown for my desktop wouldn't connect to the router. But I finally got her back in business and she's happy. :smile2:

    Desktop, nothing but desktop.

    I can upgrade my desktop, but I don't know hw to upgrade a laptop.

    I won't post specs, but crayzeecade... you're almost there.
