Home built system:

P4 1.8A running at 2.4GHz (for over 2 years!)
1GB Corsair XMS3200
160GB hitachi SATA drive
Radeon 9700 Pro
SB Audigy Platinum (games)
Echo Mia (digital audio work)

This one's gonna get upgraded soon.... nForce4, Athlon64 3000+ (to be overclocked) and video card TBD... that cpu will hold me over until I plop in a dual core chip later this year. Then it's gonna be a kickazz digital audio workstation. And gaming of course.

And my trusty little mac mini will do everything else.

see my .sig for my PC rig. i've also added some ext USB HDDs: 180GB and 200GB 3.5" and 100GB and 80GB for 2.5".

it's too bad my ext 2.5" HDDs doesn't work w/ the mac mini because the USB port doesn't have enough juice to drive it.

Now, all they do is act as firewalls and X terms mostly. Back in the day, I used them at work for some geophysical applications.
