    No idea what motherboard
    32 MB Ram
    some nVidia chip. Again, no clue.
    ATX case

    Bought in 2000. Still works perfectly.

    Not sure, should check the warehouse, for certain I have 286 there, not sure if I still have that one 086, there is an MSX too, VIC20 etc, it was a good time when I bought those, I should note that all was bough new, probably many parents of board users hadn't met when bought my first computer, actually it might of been that those parents were not even born then, why all of sudden I feel old (again)? :)

    I have dismantled all of mine but at one point it was a Digital Computer from the mid 1990s I forgot the specs of it but trust me...it was running windows 95 and then my dad rebuilt it to run Windows 98SE for a long time, I think it was either a 386 or a 486 processor I have honestly forgotten it :(

    Amiga A500+, bought new in 1987. 6 months later, I got my Olivetti M24.

    Both still work.

    I have a very old Apple IIgs. It is completely stock, and I also have a few old dell computers that I am trying to reuse as cheap office computers.

    I have a crap box with a Phenom II standing around, but it's kinda bastardised over time and doesn't really count.

    oh, and it's a mangled mess. I fell off my desk, and landed on it's top front right corner, and mangled the case. Held together with tape
