check out this video on google video taken from the screensavers in 1998 : The Ultimate Gaming Machine

I love the $5000 21" CRT Monitor.

Oh my that is awesome, I love things like that, that just bring back old memories. It's hard to believe that was only in 1998, how much things have changed in 7 years, like it seems like things have quadroupled in terms of speed and capacity from what they used to be in only 7 years.

I think that is simply hilarious.  I remember when I would have killed for that system though. The other thing I found strange was that they already had 10,000 RPM hard disks.  Now granted that was SCSII but still hard disk RPMS havn't seemed to have progressed in sync with the rest of the system.

That is great.  I love how much they think they are "greedy" for having 128mb of SDRAM.  Today's graphics cards and have 2x - 4x more RAM than their whole system.  To be RAM greedy today you'd have to be running 4GB.  It's neat to see that Leo hasn't changed must. . . he's not as thin today, but that's about it.
