I have a piece of shit barely good enough to read email and surf. It's a good thing that's all I use it for.... This was a damn good 'puter 3 years ago, though. Too bad I didn't have it then, it's a conglomeration of 3 older models.

Pastor...an Athlon 1800+ is supposed to run at 1.5 GHZ. AMD rates their processors with a stupid number in order to confuse consumers. When they buy an 1800+, they think "oh..1.8 ghz", but its really 1.53 ghz. So, your 1800+ is running at its correctly rated speed.

FYI: to fend off the AMD fanboiz..they named it the 1800+ because they claim it is to compete with the Pentium 1.8 ghz.

I had an Asus Motherboard, but when I needed help, their Customer Service consisted of a lone woman who couldn't understand English and only answered the phone from 6:00 p.m. to 11:00 p.m. CST Mon - Fri. So I changed to:
Abit NF7-S (Built in 5.1 Surround Sound for my music)
160 G Hard Drive
120 G Hard Drive
100 G External Hard Drive (firewire connected)
Dual layer DVD Burner Sony 16X
Single layer DVD Burner (generic) 8X
2 G Corsair XMS Memory (got them for 100.00 from a local dealer)
5.1 Surround Sound System w/subwoofer
250 M Zip Drive
Sapphire ATI Radeon 9800Pro 256Mb (again a steal from a local dealer at only 100.00)
500 W Power Supply
Fun blue case with neon fans and LEDs on the front with temperature gauge for internal case temp and CPU temp

Whoa, KCW, can you hook me up with that dealer's name? Those are pretty amazing deals. Also, it is very strange that your processor woold overheat playing that game. Do you have a good/large heatsink? My 3000+ has never overheated and I've played games like Half-Life 2 and Far Cry.

Sorry on the dealer, but he wouldn't stay a friend very long if he only got cost on a bunch of sales.

No, the heat sink sucked and was clogged. I could have just bought another fan and copper plated heatsink for 30.00, but I wanted the water cooled and it wasn't that much more.

As a gamer, I usually try to keep ze rig up to ze snuff...

Athlon FX-51 socket 940 2.4 GHz chip
Gigabyte GA-K8NNXP-940 mobo (Its was the only workable 940 board at that time)
2 Gigs (4 pieces) of ECC Registered Corsair 3200xms memory
ATI Radeon 9800XT video card
Audigy2 ZS Pro soundcard (I still hate Creative)
Logitech Z-680 5.1 speakers
Sony 21" G520 Monitor
Logitech MX900 Bluetooth Optical cordless mouse
Antec Sonata Quiet Case with 90mm fans to keep the noise down to a minimum.

and a bunch of pirated software as well....

Sadly, I've only had this setup for a year and already feel the need to upgrade soon. The video card is stable but I would love to get ahold of the new ones with 24 pipelines.. schweeeet... Plus, the FX-58 chips are freaking awesome combined with the 939 mobos.

I just wish Nvidia would have released their Soundstorm audio drivers in the latest batch of Nforce4 mobos so I could dump Creative and their bloatware altogether...

The CoD was only with the Zip-100. I RMAed my unit and got a new drive and 30 Zip-100 discs for my trouble.
Now I have the Zip-750-USB, still the most convenient way to carry crap to another computer, and put stuff I might, but probably won't, need some day.
CD-Rs aren't bad, but it's still a little bit more of a pain in the arse to make another 'master backup' every time one of my peripherals has a software update, then wade through them months later and figure out which one has what I need.
If I were buying mass storage today, I probably wouldn't go out and buy it for MSRP, but it still serves a purpose just peachy.
