Author Topic: How Many Computers do You Have, and What are They Running?  (Read 1472 times)

Saw this question elsewhere, and thought it'd bring it up here.

I have too many systems to properly keep track of by now (at least 10 currently running).
Mostly of my systems are servers running Fedora Linux, but I have one server running Debian and the firewall to my network is running pfsense (though I'm considering other options as I'm frustrated with the underlying FreeBSD system, especially its unscalable network stack).
I also have many systems that currently have no OS as they're not in use, or are in need of repair, including an IBM PS/2 type 8580 that is currently non-operational due to a damaged floppy drive.

forget i should've put 2, i have a personal dell gaming laptop (windows 10) and a dell thinkpad school issued laptop (windows 7)


welcome to the flex thread. people are here to flex their simple linux setups ( WHICH ARE ELITE BECAUSE ONLY ELITE PEOPLE USE ARCH LINUX, MANJARO AND REDHAT DISTROS BY THE WAY )

2 desktops - both running windows 7 enterprise 64 bit

The one is a Dell slimline tower, Intel core 2 duo with some extra ram(8GB total) and a 1 TB internal hard drive 7200 RPM, unfortunately it's still running embedded graphics for now; but it's been able to handle low end games and even some gamecube/ps2 emulated games when the video settings are properly adjusted. It also has an additional media bay for SD cards that I rigged up to it from an old HP system. The other (my gaming rig) is a custom build, an AMD fx-8320 eight core alongside a GTX 770, 4 GB GDDR5. 16 GB of system ram, using 2 500 GB internal hard drives both 7200 RPM. I use my main drive for my operating system and store files on the reserve drive. I have an additional 1 TB external hard drive which uses USB 3.0 that I frequently swap between the two systems for various tasks.

I have a spare tower that I do not use, it's an Intel ViiV motherboard - Intel Core 2 Quad Q6600 CPU with 6 GB of DDR2 ram. Before my current rig(still outdated but much better) this was my battlestation for over 10 years. It was originally a system built for Vista but I eventually upgraded to 7. I can say this PC was and still is a very reliable system - at one point on the struggle I had to resort to using 40% zinc diaper rash cream in substitute for thermal paste. This went on for nearly a year, cleaning and reapplying it every few months before I was able to finally get ahold of some arctic silver. As if it couldn't get anymore rigged - the GPU I was using was an ATI Raedon 2400 Pro which is a PCI card meant for slimline cases. I used some needle nose and made it fit. Since this card has a strange DVI port I also had to have an adapter to be able to use my standard DVI cable. The 2400 finally took a poo last year, so I installed a GTX 570 in it's place, now I just need to upgrade the power supply and ram to get it back in the 'game'
