Default Social Experiment!

So im selling my current rig to build a new one,but not right away!

We are all so used to having things done so quickly and easily,we are spoilt when it comes to consumer computing power. So,once my rig has been sold im going to see how long i can last with a computer of last century!


-700mhz P3
-256mb RAM
-80gb HDD
-Intergrated Graphics/Sound/Network
-CD Burner
-Windows 98

I really dont know how long i'll last because im quite an impatient person LOL.

Desktop:BitFenix Survivor~Gigabyte GA-P67A-UD3R~ i7 2600K @ 4hz~AMD 6870 1GB~12gb Team Elite DDR3 1333~3xWD In RAID5~W7 Ult
Laptop:Alienware M11x~ i7-2637M 1.7GHz~16GB 1333MHz DDR3~GeForce GT 540M~W7 Ult

With windows 98, operating that wont be that slow at all really. Getting the modern "Internet" to load on it at any speed >Bearable is a different story

PS. I can't get the link you PM'd me to work Neodude.

New laptop:
2.1 Ghz Core 2 Duo processor :: nVidia GT150m :: 15.6" HD LCD :: 4gb RAM :: 320gb HDD

New player: iPhone 4 32gb

Although I had a copy of this for the (I think it was a) Macintosh 512ke.

Of course this was back in like 1998 when a family friend gave us the crap machine lol.. But I do have to admit it was fun to play with.
