Jesus, I've owned PCs with 100+ different components. Rarely do I buy all new computer of all new parts at one time. Though lately I did refresh platform to LGA1700 and only GPU stayed the same. 

... but I'm no expert.

I challenge you! Break this encryption and you may find yourself in the possession of a certain NVMe SSD. Not sayin' which, but it's PCIe 3.0.

s9RwmgR+2NuMMwX0PongCveBrgUeNYfEAGTscszGq9A=

It's only AES128, won't be too hard to crack. Plus it's not like the key is someone's name, separated out into letters, which are converted to their corresponding 

numbers, which is then converted to base-3, which is then given 3 padding 0's so it's 16 characters long right?

1st computer circa 1991: 

Packard Bell 

cpu: 486 dx @ 33mhz

gpu: Packard bell 'accelerated graphics' with 512kb memory

ram: 4 mb

storage: Don't remember but something like 30mb

 

This computer was an absolute piece of garbage my parents paid around $1,000 USD at the time. Within 1 year of use, the monitor went out and we began experiencing 'Memory parity BSOD errors' randomly every few minutes. I remember as a teen playing around with QBasic and Visual Basic and writing stupid games. I was so excited when Fury 3 came out with Windows 95 and it barely ran at around 5 fps...LOL

I refer to mine as the crappy testbench

 

Cpu: usually e8400

Rams : 3x1 extreem dark ddr2 1066 6-6-6-18

Board: crappy p5q (even with bios mod with p5qd pro and ebb swap to miif max is only 585fsb)

Psu: dazumba 450w, 11 years old but seems like a good quality unit considering how heavy it is and the 12v rail has 360w

Storage: some slow ass 80gb hard drive i got for 2$

Case: its on a freaking cardboard box

Cooler: cheapo chinese 92mm tower (eddy 90b plus)

 

I usually use it to test ocing and also do some nonsense experiments like running a pentium without a heatsink and undervolting it so it doesnt overheat xD, also other stuff like shoving a tec cooler on the nb

I gave it an honest effort, listing out all the specs of all the systems I ever had just seemed impossible. I might be able to do what others have and just list a one liner for each system. But even then, so many.

 

- Dad's Roomate's 386 sx20

 

- First family computer, 233mhz w/ mmx

 

- First computer I didn't have to share with sibling, good ol Celeron 300a OC'd to 400ish mhz. (my mobo was poo)

 

- Then I think it was a p3 600 when I was in college.

 

- Upgraded to an Athalon XP 2700+ (Thoroughbred) - This  system I had a lot of great memories with, the Asus A7N8X-E Deluxe motherboard. The video cards, man... First team green with a Geforce 3 ti 200, then to team red, a ATI 9700 pro (sadly only the 128mb model). Oh the memories.

 

- I think next was an Athalon 64, 2800+ system. Basically all the parts of the last system but with a cheap ass OEM socket 745 motherboard and the CPU. I was so anxious to get on 64bit platform, all the while running only 2gb of RAM and Windows 32bit. What a noob. I ended up frying that CPU during a CPU cooler upgrade. Ended going back to the previous system for a while to come. Oh the early 20s, when money is tight and all you are focused on is paying rent and going to the pub.

 

- I think next was a proper upgrade to the Core 2 Duo platform, the E6300 I believe. Eventually came into a Q6600 CPU for free, oh the joys of working at a PC Tech shop, some customers... they are the best. And thanks to Acer's shitty OEM systems at the time, they had a model that had an proprietary case and motherboard that just loved to fail all the time. Some users took that as a sign to upgrade completely and had no use for the spare parts of the old system, 'cept maybe the HDD. Anyways, I think I rocked that  for a long time. This system also had some great memories for video cards, the Radeon HD5850 1GB card and the HD7970 3GB card. The former being the first card I mined a whole BTC with back when ASICs were just starting to be a thing. (Anyone remember those first gen ASICS that look basically like USB sticks??? yeah I have a few of those kicking around if anyone wants em lol). The 7970 was a beast, it was so sad the day I mined it to dust. I had a real problem with mining back in the day lol. 

 

- I also think between now and the next upgrade, I started to dabble with the idea of another computer acting as an always on file server. Basically just running WinXP pro with advanced file sharing. I think it was a socket 478, Pentium 3.0GHz w/ HT.

 

- Then I moved on to the AMD platform, with the FX6100 CPU and the 7970 video card from the previous main build. I think I ended up buying an R9 290x (SAPPHIRE TRI-X OC Radeon R9 290X 4GB) and a 3TB WD Green HDD for like 1.3BTC... oh man I am still kicking myself on that one.

 

- Next was an upgrade to the space heater of shame, the FX9590 and a GTX970, a fancy new 1000watt PSU and AIO from Corsair. Moving on up in the world now! lol

 

- I believe next was the first big proper upgrade, that set me down the path of spending way too much on little tiny fittings and angled adapters. And back to team blue with a 7700K on the Asus Maximus IX formula board and the Infamous 1080ti FE (EVGA). Plus this was my first time with custom loop, started with soft tubing and eventually graduated to Hardline tubing. The case was / is the classic Thermaltake Core P3 Snow Edition. With a tempered glass panel upgrade (my version only came with the plexi). Funny enough, while the water cooling stuff was all EK, the computer parts were all ordered from NCIX, right before their decline. Like weeks before their decline. I think I got lucky.

 

- From there I have upgraded to my current platform, the Ryzen 5900x, Asus Dark Hero Mobo, RTX3080.

 

- I also guess I should mention my current unRAID server as well. A 3900x with 32gb RAM, the old 1080ti for a VM and a quadro p620 for encoding.

 

There were also HTPCs and various laptops / macbooks / tablets / phones omg the phones, (I used to work for RIM [BlackBerry])... And I am still sure I am leaving stuff out. But it was fun going down memory lane. Thanks.

I'm able to list the CPU of basically every computer I ever personally owned - the rest of the specs would only be bits and pieces.

 

80286, 80386 SX33, 80486 DX-50 (all of them old computers from my grandfather's business), Pentium 133 (my father's old work laptop), AMD K6-166, AMD Athlon 1333, AMD Athlon XP 2400+, Intel Atom N270 (laptop - Lenovo Ideapad S12), Intel Core 2 Duo T7700 (Macbook Pro 2007), Intel Core i5-4590, Intel Xeon 1231v3, AMD Ryzen 5 5600X.

Sorry but when I saw that title "Name Every PC" I immediately thought of the meme about a girl saying she is a fan of something and then being asked "name every thing ever! Haha I knew you weren't a real fan". 😀

 

Anyway I started with Commodore 64 then Commodore 128 then Mac Plus and then a whole series of more Macs until I built my first PC in 2001.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The CPU history of that PC was:

AMD Athlon Thunderbird "C" 1 Ghz

AMD Athlon 64 3500+

Intel Core 2 Duo E6600 Conroe Processor 2.4GHz

INTEL CORE I7 2600K 3.4G

Intel 10900K (current, hand me down from gaming pc)

 

GPU History:

ATI All-In-Wonder Radeon

ATI ALL-IN-WONDER 9700 Pro

ATI ALL-IN-WONDER X800 XT

XFX GeForce 7950 GT Xtreme

EVGA GTX 280

EVGA GTX 680 SLI

EVGA GTX 980 SLI

EVGA GTX 1080Ti SLI (donated to gaming PC)

EVGA GTX 1080 (current)

 

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

 

I built a second gaming PC in 2018:

 

CPU:

AMD Threadripper 1950X

Intel Core i9-10900KF (donated to first pc)

Intel 12900K (current)

Name Every PC

3mb2ek.jpg

 

My first was

 

ASUS SP97

AMD K5 PR90

4x16MB asym mem

512K EGA, I think it was from IBM

10GB HDD, I had a 5.25" FDD and a CD reader as well.

PSU and case were junk tier

12" amber monitor

 

All of these parts were found at scrapyards except for the case + PSU (and a printer that still use) that was kindly waiting for me outside a closing store, the ribbon cables I bought and most of the jumpers were improvised with pieces of wire, screws or anything that could do the job lol. Now that was a real episode of Scrapyward Wars.

Those AT boards came with no ports so I had to make my own, of course my first attempts were terrible and it took me a while to solder the wires and crimp the connectors correctly, I was visiting the components shop at least once a week to gather connectors, wires and tin. Read all of the books about electronics from the town's library as well.

I was 8 about to be 9 when I put that monster together. My parents were fucking mad. That's the point where everything went downhill /s

 

Can you run DOOM on it? YES.

 

Then I had an Athlon XP build up until 2 years ago, 512MB mem, a 40GB drive and onboard graphics with a full colour monitor.

Why would I research the internal specs on my TRS80, my TI99-4a, etc?  I barely remember that the PC I got after freshman year in college had a K6-2 and Hercules graphics with something like 8MB vRAM or something pathetic.  And since then I've had 2 desktops and ~7 laptops.  So no, I don't remember all the specs.
