Hey guys, I am about to build a new system and I was wondering what you program on, and what you recommend to program on? Also do you have a dedicated machine to program on,or do you use an all purpose machine. Everyone at least post your specs, I think it will be fun to see what everyone has. Thanks

Athlon XP 2500
ASUS A7V600 mobo

I do all my programming on my main system here, but I occasionally do testing on the other (less powerful) machines in the house as well.

Main PC: AMD Athlon 2600+, 1GB DDR, GeForce4 Ti4200, 400GB HDD, DVD Burner, WinXP

Second PC: AMD Athlon 2100+, 512MB DDR, GeForce2 Ti, 40GB HDD, Red Hat Linux (Runs Web Server & CVS Server)

Most of my programming is done on the main PC although I''m trying to develop for windows and linux. The linux box contains the CVS repository which I access from the windows PC and also from my work PC.

Home:
2.8 GHz P4, P4P800 Deluxe (Dual 800Mhz FSB)
1GB 400DDR(800) RAM
GeForce3 (Yeah, it doesn''t really fit the system)
40GB + 200 GB Maxtor Drives
19" SyncMaster 900NF
DVD
CDRW
Win2K Pro.

Home mobo with dead chipset fan:
1.4 GHz AMD Thunderbird, A7V266
512MB 133DDR(266) RAM

Work:
1.8 GHz P4, unknown mobo, but it sucks. (needed replacement within a year because parts burned off itself)
512MB unknown speed RAM, but it sucks. (needed replacement about a month ago, because, on a very small set of addresses, if more than 24 bits were set in a DWORD, it figured all the bits were set. I have to give credit to MS and XPs bug submit tool for discovering this, and giving me a mem test proggie. The ram worked on every test except the two checkerboard pattern ones.)
GeForce3 Ti200 (I had a real 3, not a Ti200, but when they upgraded my machine they downgraded my GPU)
80GB Drive
17" generic monitor
DVD
WinXP Pro
XBox Debug Kit
14" ntsc/pal tv.

This is a great thread. Just like leafing through a computer catalogue.



Human beings, by changing the inner attitudes of their minds, can change the outer aspects of their lives.

William James (1842 - 1910)
