Poll: How do you rate my system? Could you deal with it if you owned it?

Just wondering... since most of us here seem to have stupendously fast systems! I like my system a lot, anyways... :D hehe.

Close to mine, a P2-450 and TNT-1. Soon to be replaced with a 1.2Ghz Thunderbird/DDR and a Geforce Ultra!

That's a great system! A zillion times better than mine, that's for sure! I would not like a TNT though, I never liked em, especially the original TNT. But the rest is nice, and I suppose it does a great job for what you do, even some games.

Very nice ram, and good HD, must be fast. :) I'd run Win2K if I could though, as opposed to Win98SE, although that's the next best thing.

I am running Win2K SP1 as my primary OS - does my system profile say this... I may have to edit if it doesn't.

Current OSs installed;
Win2k (primary), Win98, Linux

I could live with it but I will always want more. Of course no matter what I have I will want more.

its a great system. You could easily pop in a new p3-850 or 900 and it'd be top notch, but for almost all the type of stuff that I do i couldn't even tell the difference between my athlon 800 and that. I'd notice the monitor most.

Having the 1 mbps T-1 line available to you more than makes up for what isn't a terribly slow processor anyway. A fat internet pipe makes up for a lot. I know people that are still running old Compaq 120Mhz systems on a dialup modem to AOHell... now that's painful. Your system seems okay to me.
