Post your system specs

Post by Retrodude on Sat Mar 10, 2012 8:47 am

Ever wondered what kind of hardware your fellow Humongous fans are using? This is where to find out!
In case anyone doesn't know their specs, Belarc Advisor is a free PC analysis program that scans your PC's specs and saves the information into a nice HTML file.
My specs are as follows...

OS: Windows XP Home Edition SP3
Processor: 2.93 gigahertz Intel Core 2 Duo
Hard drives: 1 terabyte primary hard drive (Well, 931 gigabytes to be exact. You know that they don't guarantee the exact amount)
1.5 terabyte secondary backup drive (this is where I store my video clips and some of my Humongous games)
Other Storage: One DVD-ROM drive
One floppy disk drive (My computer is actually the only one in my house that has one! Now if only I could get more old DOS games to use it...)
Video Display: ATI Radeon HD 5700 video card
LG W2043 20.3 inch monitor
Current screen resolution: 1600x900
Sound: Realtek High Definition Audio (The sound card is built into my motherboard. I'm using a 2 speakers + subwoofer setup as well)
RAM: 2 gigabytes of RAM
Other stuff: My keyboard is some random Microsoft keyboard with a crapload of macro buttons that I never use, including 5 buttons to instantly go to a favorite website, instant access to My Documents, Pictures, Music... The most useful out of these is a slider that adjusts zooming, which is great when I'm reading a PDF file.
My mouse is just a basic black mouse with two buttons and a scroll wheel with button, manufactured by HP.
As far as game controllers go, I have a Logitech F10 gamepad, which actually has a switch on the back that changes whether it registers in the computer as a Logitech controller or an emulation of an Xbox PC controller. The only difference I've seen between them is that some games won't register the d-pad unless I switch it to Xbox mode. Other than that, it's the perfect thing to play PC platforming games or just about any emulation on the planet.
Lastly, I've got a 12.1 inch drawing tablet made by a company called Aiptek. Their products, as well as their website, are hilariously engrish, but I have no problems with the tablet at all. It works really nicely, especially for a product that gives you a bad first impression with it's broken English.

I will update if I find out any other interesting tidbits.

My old computer, which is dead: (scroll down to see updated stats about my temp, and my new one.)

OS: Windows 7 PRO 64-bit
Processor: Intel Core 2 Quad Q6600 2.40GHz
Hard drives: 1 terabyte Samsung internal hard drive
Windows Experience Index Rating: 5.5
Other Storage: One DVD-RW drive from LG
3.5 inch floppy disk drive (Useless)
Graphics card: Nvidia Geforce 9600 GT
Monitor: LG FLATRON W2242TQ (I think it's about 22 inches)
Native resolution: 1680x1050
Sound: Realtek HD Audio
Speakers: Bigass Logitech 5.1 Surround system, but the rear speakers are unconnected due to lack of space for them, resulting in an effectively 3.1 speaker system.
RAM: 2 gigabytes of RAM

Edit: This is out of date, this computer is broken now and I have a new one. Scroll down to see its specs, I'm just leaving this here for archival.
Operating System: Windows XP Media Center Edition Service Pack 3 (build 2600)
Processor: 2.00 gigahertz AMD Athlon 64 X2 Dual Core
Hard Drive: 250 GB main, 1.5 TB GoFlex Backup
Video: ATI RADEON XPRESS 200 Series (256 MB Video Memory)
Sound: Realtek AC97
Resolution: 1920 x 1080
Other Storage: DVD-ROM drive, DVD Writer drive
Speakers: Creative CS120 (They date all the way back to my 486!)
Monitor: ASUS VS247 (23.4 inches)
RAM: 1 GB of RAM (I have since upgraded it to 3 GB)
Keyboard: An HP keyboard that came with the system, loaded with random buttons I never use. It's mostly because it's a Media Center PC though.
USB sticks: Ativa 4 GB
Mouse: Standard Logitech mouse with a scroll wheel in the middle.
Game Controllers: An Xbox 360 controller, made for Windows. That's not self-contradicting at all.
Printers: HP LaserJet 4100 PCL 5e, HP Officejet 6500 E709n Series

Yeah, my computer's pretty old and has shown its age. Apparently, we got it on 10/2/2005.

Greg and Retrodude have 1 TB hard drives too though...
Anyway, yeah, it's pretty funny to think at one point you had to partition a hard drive if it was more than 2 GB!

"At one point" indeed! People haven't had to do that crap since 1996, when Windows 95 introduced FAT32 to the world!

I thought Direct3D wasn't used in LEGO Island?

Interesting. Anyone think maybe we should start a thread for retrocomputing specs?

Specs for my older computer, mostly use it for playing really old games:

Processor: Pentium IV
Hard Drives: 74GB Samsung internal IDE drive
Other Storage: One DVD-RW from LITE-ON.
Graphics card: ATi Radeon 9200 AGP
