My old P4 Desktop Computer

Okay. This is a custom assembled system that I assembled years ago. It looks pretty decent... black being the consitent color all over. Lets see what we have here. Lets look at the processor, motherboard and memory details first. 

Kinda outdated by today's standards? It sure is! I use and abuse this system for my R&D. So that is OK. Lets look at the
graphics card details now.


Ah. The trusty old NVIDIA GeForce 7300 GT. Outdated you say? It sure is! Who cares. But it still works. Now lets look at the "other stuff".

Yes. This is Windows Vista Ultimate x64 Edition. Sooner or later the entire world will move to 64-bit computing. Why disgrace the 64-bit processor by running a 32-bit operating system on it? Biased, you say? I consider myself a 64-bit computing evangelist! Make the change today. The choice is yours!

Windows Experience Score of 3.7. Not bad at all considering the age of the system. As you can see... the major hiccup here is the processor. Moral of the story: Pentium 4/D processors are dogs! Don't buy one. Buy a room heater instead!

Here are some more amusing stuff. 

Did you notice those multiple CD/DVD drives? Yes. Those are virtual drives, except two. Notice the two sound cards? Yes. I use them both at the same time. Also notice how I installed all 64-bit drivers for Windows Vista x64. Which brings us to the conclusion... "Seek and you shall find. Ask and you shall get."

NB: I don't have this system anymore. I sold this junk and bought myself a 22" Samsung LCD. :)
