It's a homemade PC - I see no reason to pay someone to build what we (or I)
can build cheaper and arguably better.
It's a Pentium III 1GHz processor with 768MB of PC133 SDRAM, and also sports
an Ultra160 SCSI HDD. It's running a Windows 2000 SP3 OS. However, I was
never really having that many problems with Inventor 6 on that machine. It
was the other one that power exited 5 times on every day that ends in "y".
That one is also a Pentium III 1GHz, but with 1GB of PC133 SDRAM, an Oxygen
VX-1 video adapter, and an IDE HDD running at UDMA-66. It's also got
Windows 2000 SP3.
The only real significant hardware difference between the two computers is
the mobos. The first box (the one that runs well) has a Tekram mobo with a
VIA chipset. The one that didn't run well used an ASUS CUSI-FX (FlexATX
form factor) mobo with an SiS chipset. I've never been too fond of SiS
chipsets, myself. Well, really I've never cared for VIA chipsets, either.
On my home computers I stick to Intel chipsets.
