What PC Do You Have?

Mon Mar 20, 2006 5:55 am

So currently I have this:

HP Compaq NC 8230



Centrino 1.83ghz
512MB Rhaam
15"4 WUXGA
60GB
Radeon X600 graaphics

I also ordered this powerfoolishness this weekend:

Shuttleuh P3100G



P4 Dual Whore 3GHZ
2GB Rhaam
200GB
X800GTO 256MB Grhaaphics
+80GB HDD to be installed on arrhaaival.

So what foolishness do you have? As you can tell I like Intel Processors and avoid AMD due to their oven-like overheating.

I have a Toshiba Satellite Laptop.

Intel Pentium M 1.73GHz
100 GB Hard Drive
Integrated Graphics Chip
Sound Blaster Audigy NX External Sound Card
1024MB RAM

Not a bad laptop, it seems to run the flight simulator fairly well, not as good as my old desktop, but I was thinking of building my own desktop for games and keeping the laptop for work.

I've got a Dell tower, its around 5 years old now but works fine. Since I did the wireless router in the house, I am usually on my CF-29 Toughbook though.

RE: What PC Do You Have?

Tue Mar 28, 2006 3:55 am

I need some advice for purchasing a laptop. I'm gonna be doing a fair amount of traveling this summer and want something that will allow me to use Flightsim 2004. I'm looking at a Dell Notebook (XPS M140 --- also called the 630m) with 1.73GHz/2MB Cache/533MHz FSB, Integrated Intel® Graphics Media Accelerator 900 - 512MB Shared DDR2 SDRAM 2 Dimms.

Will this be enough to run Flightsim well? I generally don't download the add-on aircraft that are like 10megs each, or add-on much extra scenery, just use more basic aircraft that are a step above the default ones.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I don't think that'll cut it. You need to have a proper videocard. I might suggest the IBM (Lenovo) Z60m.
