In case you are wondering where I went, I left Omni back in 2015 to form CodeWalrus due to various reasons explained back then, but I stopped calc dev in 2016 and am now mostly active on the CW Discord server at https://discord.gg/cuZcfcF

I heard many bad stuff about emachines, as well as old dell laptops :Dbiggrin.gif , but hopefully it will be fine, especially with those specs :)smile.gif

uggg....i decided to return it for the long run.  they dont let you open the case to upgrade stuff like video cards and if anything goes wrong that have a bad record of replacing it.  right now im looking at cyberpower pc's instead and am liking what i see.  i like how some of them have dual AMD so i could play WOW and dl stuff at the same time.  there are other reasons, but those are the main ones.

@Kevin: ya, if you have 256RAM get more. the comp im on has that and it sux

@Rivereye:did you already get it? Who makes it?  ive heard that the AMP XP cpu's arent as fast as the AMD 64's or the duals.

That's not why the 64s are faster. You have all been led into the Intel trap of lies which has convinced you that clock speed is the only thing that determines the speed of a processor. The 64s are faster because they are 64-bit. My Athlon XP 2600+ runs at 2.31 ghz, yet is far inferior to my friend's Athlon 6400 3200+, which runs at 2.0 ghz. This is because of a few things. First , the 64s are 64 bit, which means they can handle more operations at a time. Second, the Athlon 64 series all (except for the lower end Athlon 64 3200s) run on either a socket-754 or a socket 939 motherboard, as opposed to the socket A motherboard which my Athlon XP uses. The 754s and 939s have more pins (754 and 939, respectively), which allows for greater bandwidth to the motherboard. There are a number of other features which make some cpus faster than others, but I won't go into the details. CDI, I recommend looking at an ABS machine, you can get a good gaming rig of them cheap, and they are very high quality and have extremely reputable customer service.

I just bought another Commodore 64 (well actually a C64 DTV). The DTV provides a nearly full hardware emulation of the C64.

C64 Specs:
- 1 MHz 6510 CPU
- 64 Kb Ram
- VIC Graphics Processor (320x200 @ 16 colors)
- SID Sound Processor (3 voice mono)
- Video Outputs : RF, Composite, and S-Video
- 1 Serial Port (daisy chain up to 4 devices)

Ahhh... the good old days. ;)wink.gif
