Windows 7 RTM/ Windows XP Professional SP3
 
 

Mine was a cyrix 120 mhz in a TXPRO mobo. It had 32 MB RAM, 2.5 gb hd and a S3 vision 864 card (later paired with a voodoo card). Had a lot of fun with that machine. Later (when I could buy parts by myself) upgraded to a K6/2 450 mhz 320 mb ram, two 8.4 gb hds and a S3 SAVAGE 4 8mb.
Next comes a P3 450, 768 mb RAM and a 6200 agp 256 mb (lots of great games ran in that machine)
Then I upgraded to a Sempron LE1100 (1.8 but easy OC to 2.5) 2gb ram and a 8600GT
And then comes my current comp

I'm not sure what it was, but it was my parents and one of the slowest computers I had ever used. We also had dial-up back then which made it ten times worse, and whenever I tried to play a game, it froze.

I graduated HS in 80 and as I recall a few of my friends had Apples or Commodores.

My first computer didn't come along until 90 or later. It was a Packard Bell I picked up at Monkey Ward's that run dosshell, and I completed my warrant officer applicatiopn packet on it--and played games such as Sims and Chess. Really I had trouble figuring out much else to do with it. haha.

Windows 7 Ultimate x64
 
 

My dad was into electronics, so the first real computers that I used were Commodore Vic20's and 64's. Later, he purchased an 8086 that I spent a fair amount of time using.

When I was in college in 1994, I purchased my own computer. It was a Packard Bell 486-SX25, 4MB of RAM, 170MB hard drive, with a 2x cdrom drive. If I remember correctly, I paid about $1500 for that computer at ABC Warehouse. I remember upgrading that computer to 20MB of RAM, by purchasing a 16MB RAM chip when they dropped below $200 (I paid $199). Also, I remember installing a 730MB western digital hard drive that I got at Sam's Club for the low low price of just $358
