    How in the world can a SATA drive be that small? You sure it isn't a different partition at 1 GB in some obesolete file system? If you got an IDE hard drive, than I believe it. And I don't think you seriousily mean a single optical drive that can play both Blurays and HD-DVDs, CDs, and DVDs. That would be horribley expensive to make, because of the four different laser wavelengths and the fact that one will fail before the others. And on that, happy burning, multi-standard burners are better than something that can only burn CD-Rs and DVD-Rs.

    XP 32-bit can only access a little over 3GB unless you're running the Pro version. Installation of Windows 7 Ultimate (64-bit version) will just install the x86 drivers on a 32-bit system, because you can't run a 64-bit operating system on 32-bit CPU. Windows 7 Professional and higher has XP mode.

    I fill that up so fast with everything on my computer now. Hell an 80GB IDE hard drive isn't as much as it once seemed. I use about 100GB out of 1TB drive

    It's nice to have a ridiculous large hard drive even if you only use a 1/10th or 1/20th of it. Because then you don't have to shut off system restore or compress the contents.

    Processors would choke on my extensive use of DSPs from time-to-time (I dare you to try running an agressive multiband compresser/limiter on a machine from 10 years ago for kicks). I'm evil man to those ARM-powered devices. Bet I can make someone's iPhone melt from overloading it with complex tasks.

    There's only two things I do with my computer: Work and surfing the web. Therefore, I'll never buy a powerful Pc. Anyway, here's my specs:

    Os: Ubuntu (11,04, plan to update soon)
    RAM: 4gb DDR2
    Hard drive: 1tb (I think it's SATA)
    CPU: AMD LE-1660 - 2.8GHz.
    Graphic processor: GeForce 9200 - 512mb

    What more do you need to know?

Windows 7 Professional and higher has XP mode.
    I built the system myself and I always use a separate smaller hard drive for the operating system, in this case I split that drive into two partitions, one for Windows 7 and one for XP X86. I point my page file and install all of my programs on another hard drive, this is an old habit from when I had to format and reinstall Windows 98 all the time. The HD-DVD Bluray DVD-RW combo player was $80, I bought it last year on Amazon.com. I'd have my Asus DVD RW installed still as well but I ran out of SATA ports and haven't been lucky with PCIe expansion cards.

    As for the operating systems, when I built the machine it was only running XP x86, but then I dual booted between XP x86 and x64 for about a year before upgrading to Windows 7 64-bit Ultimate. When I was only using XP I only had 2GB in the system, I upgraded to 6GB when I installed Windows 7. Student software prices here in town are awesome, I'm going to miss them.

    I need to upgrade one of these PCs so I can do video edit without (hopefully) getting garbled video at random points. I'd prefer to stick with AMD, but everybody I know who does video editing either does it on a MAC or swears that Intel is the only way to go.

    The computer going in my MAME Cab in a few months:
    Intel Core i5 2500K 3.3Ghz OC'ed to 4.8ghz
    ASUS P8Z77-V DELUXE
    EVGA GTX 560Ti 1GB
    8GB Samsung DDR3 1600 8-8-8-24 1T (2x4GB sticks)
    LG GGC-H20L 16X Blu-Ray/HD DVD
    Corsair 550D
    Corsair Enthusiast Series AX750
    4x 2TB Samsung HDD in RAID 5 (ROMs and ISOs)
    1x 1TB Samsung HDD (programs and emulators)
    Intel 330 Series Maple Crest 60GB SATA III SSD (OS and essential programs drive)
    Kingwin KF-252-BK Internal Trayless Hot Swap Rack
    Thermalright Silver Arrow SB-E
    Windows 7 Professional x64
    5x Enermax 140mm fans with adjustable LED's (red/blue off)


    Main computer:
    Intel Core i7 2600K 3.4Ghz (currently stock, long story)
    Gigabyte GA-P67A-UD7-B3 P67
    EVGA GTX 680 2GB
    8GB Samsung DDR3 1600 (same ram as above, at stock timings, yuck!)
    ASUS Xonar DG
    LG GBC-H20N 6x Blu-ray BD-ROM/16x DVD±RW DL SATA Drive
    Corsair H100
    Corsair 650D
    Corsair Enthusiast Series AX 850
    2x 1TB Samsung HDD
    OCZ 60GB SATA 6 SSD (fucking garbage)
    Windows 7 Professional x64

    I blow a lot of $$$ on computers... I might toss the 2600K and SSD in the main computer and do a little over hauling. Get an 3570K, hopefully I can get it to 4.5ghz even with the heat and the intel SSD I have in the MAME computer as it is very damn fast. It's not a bad machine I only had since oct but the motherboard is garbage and I usually am a HUGE Gigabyte fan. Their newer offerings are kinda garbage. I have a Xonar DGX on the way for the MAME computer.

    Is it overkill for Mame? not quite. I want to do a few other things with it, so no. I am glad I got the deluxe edition instead of waiting for the Premium edition that has less USB and Thunderbolt (never use) and quad SLI (again, never use).

    Just got the HDD in the last hour via courier service from Amazon; just finished up installing Win 7 and basic programs. Will later install Ubuntu or some other Linux distro.

    I also yanked the motherboard out of the HTPC I listed earlier and replaced it with:

    Asus M5A597 EVO
    AMD FX 8150
    8GB G Skill DDR3 1600

    And more recently I picked up a Transcend 32GB USB 3.0 thumb drive to use as swap space and hopefully stop Premiere Pro from garbling my videos.

    I had TWO of the M5A597 EVO and it would have been nice for a HTPC but NO....refused to work. Fucking ASUS. But with that said I have a Z77 mobo and it is ok enough but it likes to bootloop sometimes when it awakens. Oh well.
