    I don't even know my 1st one but it was slow as hell possibly pentium1
    then Athlon XP 2600+
    then E6600
    then E8400

    Not upgrading for a while now though (hopfully :p)

    Yup, If i Recall it was 286/386/Pentium Pro/P3/Core (C2) that didn't Rely on Clock Speed but IPC, and the 486/ Pentium1/4/D, Relied Heavily on clock speed.

    Don't forget the Pentium M, that relied a lot on IPC speed. The Pentium 4/D had a very long pipeline, so could (and needed to) run at very high clock speeds to acheive similar speeds as a PIII/Pentium M at lower clock speeds.
    Who sees the pattern, though? Intel seems to screw up on every 2nd generation, and since C2 is WIN, then Nehalem must be...
    ;)

    Really, all I know is that I can't afford Nehalem. :cool:

    My own computers (not counting my brothers Amstrad :p), as I bought/got them:

    Pentium2 233Mhz (still around somewhere I think..)
    Celeron 333Mhz (also still around)
    P3 450Mhz (Awesum, still around)
    Duron 1.2Ghz
    Athlon XP 2500+
    Athlon 64 3000+ (in use now!)
    P3 800Mhz
    Celeron 700Mhz (router/firewall)
    Celeron 1.2 Ghz
    Core 2 Duo e4300

    .. I think that's it. Oh yeah, for some reason I have loads of Pentium 2's. It's really bizarre, and not a single soul wants them. :(

    How fast are they, and do you have motherboards?

    I know, hence the reason I'm selling my Dell to get a new rig: E1200 OC'ed to something good (dont know how high I can get on stock cooler: can't afford a proper one! :( ).

    pentium 3 800 EB ... have it on bookshelf(looking at it right now lol)
    celeron 440 ... still in my computer working like beast (good teamspeak server)
    pentium 4 2.5 ghz have it on book shelf
    pentium 4 HT 3.75 ghz have it on book shelf
    pentium D 3.2ghz ghz have that in gaming pc
    pentium D 1.6 on my laptop (had to have vista)
    pentium centrino 2.2 ghz on my laptop

    and soon i should have an intel core 2 dou ... maybe core 2 quad has a gift this Christmas

    i remember myself playing doom on my p3 when i was 6 .... it was fun lol

    never had an AMD
