    What's so impressive about doms specs? :S

    I think the H20 guy has the best setup overall, doesn't he have like Kentsfield with 8800's in SLI?

    So what is the definition of "best"? Most processing power? Fastest graphics? Fastest I/O? Most pr0n stored on it?

    Eh, I guess im like a little above adverage..lol.. i kinda thought overclocking would come into play just for the amount of cash we blow on cooling alone..lol.. i mean my cpu cooler alone costed like 140 bucks lol.. all good though, I don't expect to take 1st place anyway lol.. I'd just like to see what the badest system has :D..

    It's a best/worst thread not fastest/slowest, technically if there were 2 identical rigs and one was overclocked the non overclocked would be the best as it would last longer! :D OK, I'm not convinced either :rockout:

    I need by bit of fame - put me on the list as worst!

    I know I don't have the worst PC on TPU, but I think the people with slower PCs are staying away... :D

    Anyway, my PC's staying the same for a while now - not putting any more money into it unless it breaks. Really wish I bought a PCI-E socket 754 motherboard now, but this is good enough for what I use it for.

    ok jimmy's is updated to worst pc, Dom's still at the top and Pincy's winning the laptop section.

    If I put someones pc up the top as the best but actuall som1 els has the best pc and they've already posted plz let me know because I can make mistakes.
    Basicly everyone on TPU overclocks so it probebly wldn't make much difference in the end anyway but if it comes to the difference between there being a tie and someone winning I will count overclocking, not that I know anything about overclocking coz I don't do it mylself but I will ask someone.
