my first cpu 8086 xt...enuff said.
Thats ancient. my first was a 4.77 IBM PCXT from IPC (Intelligent Personal Computer). Then I bought an NEC V20 to get 10MHz.

That was a journey of angst because I spent thousands to feed the addiction. 4X CDROM upgrade kit from Creative for $400, anyone?

Burned many things and learned many hard lessons. I will share my story later...

You are 34 this year, in 1984 you were only 5 years old. You sure your parent will let you handle the components of a 286 computer? Come on lah, dont lie.

I'm 46 now; easily the oldest one here, a lot of shop owners in SLS still call me " 大哥 " when i go there to buy components.
Haha, not handle the components la. Play PAC man and lode runner.

sad to say PC is a sunset industry.

i just upgraded my graphic card and using a core2duo E8400 I can play the latest games...no need to upgrade CPU at all
Zhun bo? I still got E8400 with me, this thing is a joke with all the current game. BF3 it ran out of steam. If throw bf4 to it, i dont know what will happen. Use GTX680 help the CPU also useless, the CPU is a bottleneck!!!

My first computer, 486-SX25 (I think, or 33?) in secondary school.

After school go Bt Timah Shopping Centre top floor to hoot games... bring your own discs can be cheaper
The uncle that is semi balding one right? Yeah I always go there after classes in Poly from 91-94.

Good times. That was my favorite past time... to browse games there.

There was another one on the ground floor. I think kenna raided cos too prominent.

Didn't go back to the shop after I entered NS.

These are all playable with DOSBOX.
I still play Bandits king of Ancient China from time to time.
