My PC from 1999 was a gateway with

500mhz cpu
128mb RAM
20 gig HD

It was "upper tier" in '99 and cost about $1500. That was the first one I actually owned.

At school, I first gamed on an Apple II in the mid 80s and then got on line with Prodigy Internet in the very early 90s at a friends house. We were absolutely addicted to that pre-internet service...

Pentium II 350Mhz
64MB SDRAM. Added 256MB SDRAM later; 320MB total.
4MB ATi Rage Pro AGP. Upgraded to 64MB Geforce 2 MMX400 AGP that cost $5 from a friend.
6GB HDD but died. Went to a 2GB HDD.

All I remember playing on it is Counter-Strike and Mame/Kawaks/FinalBurn arcade emulators on it. That's all I had space for.

honestly? no idea it was a used thing and i could barely play games, the one i got now is MUCH better but not good enough either... laptops doesnt quite cut it.

this one however is the one i will count with, since the other doesnt really count, it was more a small gift from my dad so i didnt abuse my moms too much.

I think mine had something like a 250mb HDD. This was back when you didn't even need an HDD to install Windows until 2.1x was released.

We had a party at our office to celebrate the release of Windows 2 when all of you were were crawling or weren't even born yet.


Windows 2 came out in the late 80's. I highly doubt you a 250mb HDD then. 20mb was extremely large for a home pc then. 3.0 came out in 1989 or 1990. A 250 mb HDD then would have been thousands of dollars. It's possible but highly unlikely.


Got my 386 in 1989, and I had a smallish HD compared to my friends but it was 80mb. RAM was only 2MB though.

Mid 80's sometime, my father's old work computer. Pre-DOS. Green monochrome monitor. Bootup off a 5.25 floppy to run programs. The next one was better - it had a second monitor that could handle CGA games. I played a LOT of Life or Death.

I'm pretty sure my dad still has his old 70s computers, the ones with the HUGE floppy drives, that took like 10 inch disks.

I have absolutely no idea. I think it was Windows 95 but that's all I remember, it was a while back.

I had some custom made contraption, that was quite state of the art back in 1997-8ish. It had a Pentium 2, 64MB of RAM, CD-ROM and floppy drives, USB connections, a 4.2GB hard drive ("You will never, NEVER, need more than that!", said the builder), and a really nice graphics card that, for some reason, was incompatible with a crap ton of games.
