Wow memories. I remember when I had a system even slower but not since 1996. Right now my swapfile is bigger than your harddrive.

Hmm...I can almost do Wii emulation. I think what is holding me back is the graphics card actually. That's true of some PS2 games as well (mostly FF XII...that game is a damned beast).

Looks nice, but the contrast ratio is too low. I want to wait until someone comes out with LED-Backlit LCD, or OLED monitors. Either that or I just get a plasma TV. XD

This one looks good, especially for the contrast ratio and price. :3

Haha yeah, I've pretty much had this since the mid 90s...

Well I blew $120 on a 4GB hard drive when I was 10 but that one dies like 2 years ago...

EDIT: Now that I think of it, I was on this machine the first time I downloaded anything off of Zophar.net back in 1996. It was probably Nesticle95.
