    I've been living at my brothers place now in Minnesota, and their computer isn't anything to talk about. But at home, I've got a little something more.

    P3 at 500 Mhz
    384 MB of PC100 SDRAM
    A Gigabyte BXC "mobo" (I don't know the chipset offhand)
    ATI Xpert 2000 at 32MB (AGP)
    Diamond Monster II 3D Accelerator (Voodoo 2 chipset - PCI)
    Pioneer DVD-ROM Trayless loading (I'm not sure of the speed)
    5200 RPM Western Digital HD at a measly 8GB. I used to have a 20 and a 10GB pair of drives, but my hard disk controller on my last "mobo" took a shit on me, and wiped out my drives right along with it. I'm thinking it was the MBR that was damaged, but I have no real way of finding out.
    U.S. Robotics 56k modem and Ethernet cards.
    An offbrand soundcard with a Yamaha chipset.
    A 17 inch plain-old PNP monitor

    I'm making good money now with my new job as a bricklayer's laborer, so I'll probably put together an entirely new rig.

    in my defense:

    1. yes my v5 is pci
    2. yes there is a "tweaked" 32mb monster fusion, in other words i had another set of ram installed, unoffcially of course
    3.i dont care what you think about my 3d card choices
    4 and yes i was incorrect i do have the 32mb in my laptop, and yes it is compatible in pci form with laptops

    and why would i "fool" you? i have nothing to gain from it.
