Some real nice rigs! I'll do the picture thing when my DSL gets hooked up. I'm on dial up at home now, but not for long......!

Here'* my specs:

3200+ Clawhammer (1mb) @ 2.36, 1 GIG(2 x 512) pc 3500 - 433DDR(Kingmax)2.5-4-4-8, PNY 6800 - 364/863, Tagan 380, MSI K8N Neo Platinum, Terminator case

I currently got an Aquamark 3 score of 63,718.
I have yet to run 3DMark03, 05-- but will soon.

Here is a link to a Terminator case, so you can get an idea. I did add an extra blue led 40mm casefan in the rear and a pci slot fan as well in one of my lower pci slots. It helps cool down my 6800 a bit. http://www.atxpowersupplies.com/atx-...tor-silver.htm

Winxp

the PS2 runs a version of linux red hat 6.2
it'* disassembled right now though
Would the PS2 setup running linux be faster/ better for playing videogames? I would like to learn more about this. My current computer is like 3 or 4 years old and really slow. MUST LEARN MORE!!!

Really? The map radar in the top left screamed out CS for me. Does MOHAA have it too?

if you mean like Linux PC based games then yes...but be adivised just bombing around the desktop is a PITA ...all the PS2'* power is in its Graphic synthsizer..the actual RISC unit that processes commands isn't the fastest in the world..once you wait 10 mins to get the graphics application or game loded...thats when the fun starts.

To be honest i haven't messed with the linux stuff for a few months...but it is intresting..its out off production so ebay is your best bet...

Good luck
James

So, if I wanted to play some of the newest computer games, would it be better to use that, or to make my PC better? I can't play good games on my computer because it is too old. And slow.
