I remember my first pc, had it as a gift for my birthday. It was a 386 upgraded to a 486 with 8 gb of ram and a 2 or 3 gb hard, sound blaster, a really huge crt monitor black and white and i was using an external modem with dial-up connection for internet and i remember always arguing with my parents for the telephone bill.
also, my first ever game played on a pc was volfied and it continues to be one of my favorite old-games
now i'm sorry that i didn't take at least one picture of "the beast", but i will always remember it as my first introduction to internet and of course, i'll be laying if i didn't admit it (i'm sure all of us also know it), free p0rn

so, long live Microsoft for making the pc available to all the planet and a huge glass of ice-cold beer goes to Tim Berners for inventing the Internet and not least a bigger glass of ice-cold beer for the Google "brainiacs", in a few words, it's like this: " U rule guys...!"

Haha... I think that was meant to be 8mb of RAM. Lol.

Kinda reminds me of our first PC... While it wasn't the first computer I owned myself, it was the first in our family. 286-33MHz (if I remember correctly, 25MHz with a turbo button), 4mb SD-RAM, floppy drive, and a yellowish/greenish kinda hercules monitor. That monitor was so bad, it kept glowing for 20 minutes after it was turned off! Lol... I don't remember the rest of the specs. However, of all those parts, I still have the motherboard somewhere I think..... I'll see if I can find a pic tonight and show you.

First computer I owned myself though, it was a 486-DX4 100MHz with 12mb RAM (6 slots, 2x 4mb, 4x 1mb), a 512kb VESA graphics card (added this so I could play Destruction Derby), 40mb HDD, and two floppy drives. Oh yeah, and it ran on DOS 3 or 4 I think. I sort of killed it one day when I tried to install Windows 95.... I tried to OC the CPU, and ended up frying it at 166MHz. I should've just left it at 133MHz, that worked fine.

I can't remember my first computer's model (I got it around when I was 6, so about 9 years ago), but it had around ~800 megabytes of hard drive space, 128 megabytes of ram, no CD drive, and ran Windows 95. Can't remember processor specs. Lol

The earliest computer I know the model for was a Dell Optiplex GX-1 with a 6 gig hard drive (my first computer with a 1Gig+ HDD), 128 mb RAM, which I upgraded to 386, and a ~500Mhz processor. I got it about 2 years ago, and still use it for storage.

That reminds me of my first "gaming computer"... Back in the day it was pretty awesome, but looking back now I wonder how I survived with it. Lol. AMD K6-2 500MHz CPU, 192MB DDR-400 or DDR-333 RAM (128+64), 6.4GB WD HDD, and a NVidia Riva TNT2 M64 with 32MB VRAM. Those were the days.... I'll never forget getting that card, suddenly I could run Quake 2 without anymore graphical glitches. Hehe..

Does anybody here remember the old Comodore 64? Now that was an interesting and exciting time in personal computing! I spent hours on that thing when my dad bought one... I don't even remember how old I was.
