    Pentium P4 3.0ghz (took up smoking, nasty habit... died shortly thereafter)
    AMD Sempron 2800+
    AMD X2 4200+


    A couple of Macs should be on that list between the Pentium 66 and the Athlon 1900+, I dunno what they were, nor did I really care at the time. They were Macs and got used for schoolwork mostly. The 1.7ghz P4 I still use for work, the Sempron is my main rig in specs, and the X2 is at my brothers house. He's kinda on a rental agreement, 50$ a month. I've got a burning itch to build a new rig though...
     
  20. Hey I have had a computer with a Cyrix cpu once, it was one of them AST computers.. Damn, I remember thoose days.. all cool games I had. That was my first PC (Personal Crap).

    Ain't no yungin' here, per se . . . I remember when you had to set jumpers and switches to OC early processors :D that was so much more fun than changing settings in BIOS

    I still have all these in a box somewhere up in the attic:

    Intel 186 - 6MHz
    Intel 286 - 10MHz
    Intel 386 - 20MHz (came from military surplus, not common processors)
    Intel 486 - 40MHz
    Intel 486DX2 - 66MHz
    Intel (586) Pentium - 75MHz
    Intel (586) Pentium - 233MHz
    Intel Pentium w/ MMX - 300MHz
    Intel Pentium Pro - 200MHz (OC by some amount, but I can't remember that anymore)
    Intel Pentium II w/ MMX - 400MHz (lasted me until 2001-03 or so, don't remember)

    *no rig for a while*

    Intel Pentium 4HT 3.06GHz - (OC to 3.9GHz)
