It a homemade box with:
Motherboard is an Asus P5GZ-MX, its has the Intel Intel® 945GZ / ICH7
chipset and onboard intel 950 graphics. We have 1G ram in those
machines, which is plenty for what they do.
My son has the same motherboard on his Windows XP machine and it has had
constant niggling problems, on his machine its typically forgetting what
USB peripherals are plugged in and needing reinstalling every 6 months
when it finally dies completely. We have another machine at home - same
software but an Asus A8V motherboard - rock solid.
