I have an AMD Athlon Thunderbird Model C running at 1.4Ghz (overclocked from 1000Mhz) with 512MB of ram. Built this box back in 2000 or 2001...really should upgrade but she's still running fast so I see no reason to do so.

Computer speed isn't dependant on the CPU, other factors make it "fast" as well. As for me, I'm still running an Intel 2.8GHz "Northwood" HT processor from a few years back coupled with 1GB DDR RAM. Still pretty fast.

Oh very true, but even by todays standards a 1.0ghz chip from 2000~ ish is slow.

I can't be bothered to read this thread, but it's a silly question. It should be "How fast is your computers cumulative clock speed?"

You'd be surprised.

I work on some peoples computers that are less then a year old...mine still runs circles around them in most tasks. They could probably encode video quicker than I can...but for day to day stuff I'm still leaving them in the dust.

It's all about taking care of your stuff and tweaking your software to get the most out of the hardware. I emulate PSX games on this thing at 60fps so I'm happy for now.

I think my desktop is a 1.86 GHz, but that's a really low end eductational macintosh. And this one is a 2.16 GHz Macbook.

I am currently running an AMD 64-X2 dual core 5000+ rated at 2.6 GHZ per core. The system has 3 GB of RAM and a NVIDIA 8600 GT GPU with 256 MB DDR3 memory. System works for me. Windows Vista gives me a base score of 5.2. Not the best but definitely good for now.

3 GB of RAM, are you sure you're not going a little overboard?
