The Ultimate Gaming Machine

The Ultimate Gaming Machine

Host Leo Laporte of The Screen Savers showed a modded rig they claim to be the ultimate gaming PC. This top of the line UGM costs about $10,000 after all the add-ons.


The specs:
Intel Pentium II 300MHz
4.1GB + 9.1GB Seagate Cheetah
32x Plextor CDROM
FM synthesis
3D Sound
Adtronics Case

It didn’t say what graphics card they had in there but I reckon it could be one of those S3 Savage 3D with 8MB of RAM.

By the way, this was 10 years ago. The iPhone 3G has a faster CPU and more storage than this gaming machine.

    It’s amazing how fast technology is improving, especially in computers. One day you got a high-end computer; in the next 6 months, yours is just a standard computer.

    i played Quake back in 1995 when it first came out on my blazing fast Pentium 100 with 8MB of RAM! Played real well even on a 28.8k modem from the Philippines.

    “128Megs of RAM.. not a reasonable amount at all! That’s AAA LOT!”



  7. Well, I used to brag my 40 mb harddrive before. Now we are on the terabyte age.

    i thought this was a new Ultimate gaming rig.. I remember this old show. I missed the gaming rig section they did during those Techtv days. Tekzilla did the same thing some months ago. sponsored by NVIDIA. It has two NVIDIA 280 graphics card and an NVIDIA edition of CoolerMaster Case (being sold here for P10K)
