    you obviously have enough computer to get you onto talkbass - which is eventually going to be the only thing you use your computer for.

    so get new bass stuff :)

    Good bass equipment holds its value longer.

    Judging by your profile, you need bass equipment. Kinda like me.

    buy both


    people nowadays seem to think you require a 2000terahertz CPU in order to have a usable PC...... pfft

    get a nice 200mhz mmx pentium 128meg ram and 8.4gig HD at most 100$

    and! get some bass stuff!

    Unforunately mans0n I've got better, 233 MHz, 64MB Ram, and 3 GB of harddrive space. Ok, not ALL better, but the speed is better.
     
  12. Oh the inevitable dilemma - bass or computer?

    The ol' GeForce II GTS 32mb is getting long in the tooth... but I want a tube amp.

    Ah well - as long as I can play Mafia (it works!) i'm happy. Give me bass or give me death!

    Bass gear, in 30 years it will be "vintage" but your computer will be obeslete in 6 months. :D

    BTW, up until about '98, I was using a 286, running completley on DOS, no hard drive, with one MB of RAM. I kid you not.

    I graduated in high school in 2000 and my school's primary OS was windows 3.1

    I just used XP for the first time when I started my job 2 weeks ago.

    Yeah, I'm behind the times in computer technology. :D

    When faced with the same situation, I went computer.

    I could have gotten a Ampeg 8x10, and a high powered head, but got a nice computer. In the end, the computer was a better decision, IMHO.

    did you have the rig of death at the time?

    even if not, you were still able to get it.

    so you don't count.
