    Athlon XP 2200+, 256MB, 20 gig harddrive recycled from my last computer and a Geforce 4 MX420 PCI. I was terrified of putting the heatsink on, I just knew my scredriver was going to slip and I would poke a hole in my motherboard.

    I think I actually came here and someone had posted something, but I never joined.
