My family’s first computer (not including some random really old laptop that I wasn’t allowed to use) was a Micron with a 90 MHz pentium processor, 16 mb of ram, a 2mb graphics card, and a 15 inch monitor. it cost around $2500 in 1995… and we didn’t replace it until 2001!
My first computer that was actually mine was the one I built in 2004 with a gigabyte motherboard 3 ghz pentium 4, 1gb ddr2-533, a geforce 6600gt, 19 inch lcd, and audigy sound card. my motherboard and video card died 2 weeks ago in a power surge and i’ve just replaced them with my new gigabyte motherboard, a core 2 duo e6600, and a radeon x1900xtx (and a quality surge protector)
on a sidenote, the building in which the PC was invented here in boca raton fl was recently changed into Don Estridge Middle School, and my sister goes there!
