I can't remember, but I always remember my parents getting mad at me because my game would take up 30mb of space on the harddrive.

I did the 386/486's but I what I consider my first real gaming machine was a P90 mhz. Pretty sure it was Pacbell... I upgraded the cpu to 133mhz and I thought it was the bomb. Added a RivaTNT and maxed the memory out to 32 or 64 megs. Cant really recall. But I do recall my friends coming over and saying "man this thing is fast!" Ah the good ol days.

Getting the very first Geforce when they hit, man, now that was some gaming! What a card.
