I had the hits from the 80's. BBC micro, Commodore 64 and all - all of the back of a lorry or hand downs from school. 1st "IBM Compatible" PC I had was a Daewoo PC, was the dogs bollocks at the time, lol.

32MB RAM, 3GB HDD, 4MB Trident 9750 AGP GFX Card, Cyrix PR333 CPU (250MHz - Actually was a good bit faster than any P1 MMX's out at the time) and a 32x CD ROM Drive.

Upgraded it a wee bit later with a 400MHz K6-3 O/Ced to 450 and 384MB RAM with a IBM 7200rpm 10GB HDD. Added a 8x DVD-ROM Drive, Matrox G400 Millenium Edt 16MB GFX card and a 8x 4x 32x CD-RW later. Money well spent!
