Default Who else is running 3 year+ hardware

Damn, everyone here has such awesome setups. But I know there are those like me whose setups are getting long in the tooth, so to say. So who are you and what are you running. What is your satisfaction with what you have?

Still running great here. Looking forward to possibly a teeny performance bump with W7. I finish college this year so hopefully build a new puder once I get a job. Most games still run at maxed settings save a few so I've gotten my money's worth.

Probably my 8800GT, I know its not exactly 3 years but its beginning to show its age. But its still going strong and im proud of it can do. Also used to have an old Audigy Gamer sound card which i used for 5 years before upgrading to the X-Fi.

I still have my AMD X2 4600 system with 2GB, 8800 GTX running Windows XP Sp3. It runs great and still runs all the latest stuff, just not with max details.

I run WoW, UT3, Orange Box stuff (HL2, TF2, etc) on it no problem.

Until about 3 months ago I had an identical computer to the one you have, except with 4 gigs of RAM.

Default Re: Who else is running 3 year+ hardware

The PC I do my billing on in the office is old.

Asrock 939Dual-Sata2
AMD Athlon 64 x2 4600
2GB Kingston DDR-400
320GB WD HD
EVGA Geforce 6800GS 256MB
LG DVD-RW
Hauppauge TV Tuner of some sort
etc.

It's fast enough for making invoices and a bit of surfing, that's all I need out of that pc. Also I'm too cheap to upgrade that pc. I'll just replace it when some parts start dying.

My bench machines for virus scans and so on are all pentium d e2200's or so with either 1gb or 2gb of ram, so those are a little newer.

Still got a 7800GT paired up with an E8400 and Vista ultimate. Not a great match, but perfect for what it's used for.

Gave all my single core rigs (3 of them) to the kids.

Ha your brothers rig sounds like my family computer, minus a gig of ram and add a 6800GT 256mb. I played left for dead on that thing a little while ago lol.

I was thinking about selling my old mobo+cpu but i do have an extra case and powersupply lying around, not to mention a dvd drive, that 6800GT......
