    The choice is hard:

    1- my P/// 650 cpu running flawlessly @866 (sometimes @911) ?

    2- my monitor: Sony Cpd 420 Gst 19" allowing to play games at 1600*1200*75hz ?

    3- my video: Radeon7500 never failing me up to now (though I crave for the 8500 !)

    See my specs, it's all good for what I'm doing, though I plan to upgrade (PowerLeap PL-iP3/T + P/// 1.26 Tualatin).

    My choice ? My computer is faithfull to me, good !

    My best component is my ageing MITSUMI keyboard........

    Why??

    Its the only part of my PC that has never been replaced.....It has seen over 5 generations of CPU, countless motherboards, and not to mention survived severe physical trauma (i have hit this thing so many times, that I am amazed it still functions at all, spilt coke, coffee and all manner of foods onto it, and even threw it out of the window once!)


    Oh, and another thing......its the only part of my PC that I never actually bought!!! Not bad for a freebie...

    *hugs my Volcano 7* I am also very happy with my monitor, TTX 19" Flat, and my optical mouse. The optical mouse was one of my best upgrades. I'll never go back to the ball. :)

    Have to go with Xsivforce on the optical mouse, but for sheer reliability it has to be the floppy drive, part of my original 486. :D

    My power switcher 2000 plus is key!

    Other than that, the optical mouse is key. But, I love everything equally; it all works so well together.

    hm......... my voodoo 3 3000 pci.... i bought it when it wasn't on sale... it would never drop in price.... until a few months later, Nvidia bought 3dfx.... that just ruins my lifetime warranty... :rolleyes:

    it still performs real nice.... on top of that, it's PCI! can u believe a PCI card performing better than my screwed up 8 MB AGP card?
