My back up gaming rig, I obtained a few months ago...;):

• Commodore 64
• 1.023 MHz 8-Bit 6510 CPU
• 64K RAM
• 1541 Disk Drive
• 320x200 Video Res.
• Plethora of attachable devices from tape backup & 9-pin printer to joystick & game paddle.

Sheesh, and you guys thought you had 'old'....

And, uh...oh yeah, I have a Compaq 180 MHz Cyrix, 16 MB Ram, w/ 4 MB video attached to a crippled Packard Bell 15" monitor.

Speaking of Packard Bell; I had a Legend Tower with the Pentium 120, Triton chipset, 1 MB VRAM, 8 MB RAM, 1 gig Seagate HDD, 8x CD-ROM, 28.8 modem integrated with sound card.

It was considered the best on the market, at least for gaming...Theres a ton of games available. In fact a lot of people run C64 emulators on their PC to play the games....kinnda cool actually...
The computer & monitor was bought 1985!

486. Fear my 50 mhz.

I also have a p3700, 128 mb sdram, 20 gig hd sony vaio.

Those 2 are my backups. The 486 is used for word processing only, and the p3 is just there. It's what I use while my main system is unusable, which is not often,

24 MB RAM
1 GB hard drive
Proprietary modem/soundcard combo
Unknown video card/memory
24x/12x/40x CD-RW
Dual-booting Linux 2.2 and Win95
...and the monitor is a 14" Toshiba fixed-frequency monitor from 1989.
