    I do still have my Voodoo 5. It was the first replacement/addon part to my computer. In fact I ordered it around that card. Told gateway to put the ****tiest graphics card they had on it. I still own the card, and use it. Even in Win XP with really no problems.

    Damn Nvidia. I will never buy one of their cards. What they did do us voodoo owners is crap... but that's off the subject of this thread

    I have an HP notebook, I think it's great.
    I like notebooks much more than desktops.

    For power users like ourselves it's much better to build our own computers so we can customize them. For a regular user like family members I always suggest them to buy from a manufacturer because the price of a decent home computer is so cheap right now and they only use them for email and web surfing.

    > they only use them for email and web surfing.

    With the occasional slot games, pinball, educational software, mild video games, etc. A 350 - 500 mhz pc with a small sized 3d card is all they need for pc power, and that configuraion is mad cheap.

    The only thing they _need_ to be satisfied/have decent performance etc. is broadband. Broadband is important for them, that will really make them _think_ their pc is pretty nifty ...they'll never exploit 1.4ghz+
    The world is waiting. I must leave you now.

    I'm definitely more than a poweruser and my main machine is a PIII 550 with 320 MB RAM so it's not blazing by any means but gets the job done for me. I'm about to buy a new mobo, processor, and case though and will probably go with a Athlon 1.47 ghz or something around there. I have no need to keep up with the Jones' and buy a 2+ ghz...It would be a waste for me.

    I prefer a custom biult pc. Right now, I'm using a Compaq. Looking forward to biulding my pc in a few months time when I'm done saving

    I'm going to purchase the new Sun Microsystems Home PC when it becomes available in 2003.
