    ACS56 are AWESOME speakers!

    G4 400MHz
    192MB RAM.
    DVD
    AGP Radeon (retail version)
    OEM 10GB HD (with OS X) and an extra 30GB int HD (OS 9).
    8x8x24 Firewire CD Burner.
    19'' Sony E400 (perfect flat trinitron... kicks ass!)
    MicroSoft Digital SoundSystem 80 (awesome bass range on these suckers, even if they are MS)
    USB Zip100
    Some kind of headphones.
    MS Intellimouse Optical (5 button + scroll)
    Epson 740

    I need more RAM though. When I have all my web authoring programs open it eats up all my available RAM and starts bogging down my system.

    They cost anywhere for $400-$500, but 1600X1200 gaming is SO worth it.

    How much was the Ultra? Well, that's a tough one to answer. It was about $250. Here's why:

    -My bro bought a 32MB GTS at CompUSA (where I work)
    -He got a replacement plan on it for $20 that covers ALL damages (including user inflicted)
    -His 32MB GTS started acting up with fritzing video.
    -He came to the store to get it replaced, but all we had in stock was the Ultra. So he got bumped up to the Ultra from his 32MB GTS. And of course, he got a replacement plan on the Ultra as well. [​IMG]

    This is a nice little loop hole in the replacement plan system that results in these situations every so often.

    Pentiums suck! I paid only $96 for my Duron, which is now running at 1024MHz. AMD is a dam good chip maker. Too bad my system is still no match for a 733MHz G4 with a Radeon (Geforce 2 MX isn't as fast, but a partnership with nVidia is a REALLY good thing). [​IMG]
