Well... Can you remember the specs?

I don't remember a lot of details but I think that the processor was a Pentium II 233 mHz, 64MB of RAM and Windows ME running on a 4GB HD.

The only think that I remember is that I was the happiest person in the world when I installed Windows XP.

Also I remember that it was my uncle's computer and he gave me when I turned 8 years old... Good times.

Sucked... But I've upgraded it over time and it can run GTA:V no problem.

The first computer i learned to do Basic coding on was the Sinclair ZX Spectrum 128k, which was really good in it's time, especially as a games computer, but my first actual PC was a MEGA PC, which had a sega mega drive built into the front of a pc case with a slider to go between the PC and console. it had 1mb Ram and a 100Mb HDD.
