This is a system that was built, originally for me, in 2006, around the Vista launch. To this day, it is the only system that has run Vista satisfactorally for me.
Processor: Intel Pentium D 820 @ 2.8 GHz
RAM: 2 GB DDR-800
Has an 80GB Seagate drive as the boot drive. Files are stored on a RAID array using a Maxtor and a Seagate, both 80GB drives. The plan is to add a third drive to the RAID card in case one fails.
Has the ATI video card, a RocketRAID 1740 RAID card, and a TP-LINK gigabit ethernet card (onboard gigabit failed).
Keyboard is a trashpicked IBM KB-7953, mouse is a cheap eMachines PS/2 ball mouse I received in a box of computer junk.
OS: Windows Vista Ultimate 32-bit, Windows Embedded POSReady 2009, and Linux Mint Debian Edition "Betsy"
Current status: Retired, in storage.
