    So did you have a Windows 95 powered computer? i didn't actually get my first PC until just after Windows 98 was released, so didnt really use Windows 95 all that much.

    133mhz Pentium processor with 16mb of ram and a CD Rom drive running Windows 95, that was a pretty awesome PC back then.

    Makes me feel really old remembering that, i was just a kid back then :(

    I loved playing Age of Empires and The Settlers 2 on that PC (L)

    You didn't need a Playstation back then if you had a PC, good times.

    Pentium 2 @ 300mhz here, 128mb of ram (later upgraded to 512mb), 8gb hard drive, with a 20gb one added at a later date and a 4mb ATI Rage pro graphics card (later upgraded to a 32mb Geforce 2MX)

    That ran Windows 98, ME and Finally XP for me, although it was slow by the time XP was released due to the 512mb ram it actually ran really well once it had loaded up.

    That PC also still works today, its just not been powered on for 3+ years. The last time i used it was to Jtag my Xbox 360... (as it had an lpt port).
